Having been a fan of Hot Fusion Glass I was delighted to find out that they now run classes. My expectation was simple: to enjoy a day 'playing' around with coloured glass. An intimate class of three eager students supported by two equally enthusiastic tutors began with a delightful breakfast/get to know you session. I came away feeling both pampered...

I arrived to a warm welcome of coffee scenting the air and Graham in pinny already preparing lunch! Jane's wonderfully light and airy studio was full of marvellous things to look at and admire. I had looked forward to my day enormously and wasn't disappointed. From setting the frame to the final tapestry I took home and feeling distinctly proud...

Eoin's tuition is first class and his appreciation of our native woodland inspiring. The landscaped courtyard you work...

I've been wanting to do a jewellery course for years now and I'm so glad I've eventually got round to it!! Lisa is a pro - not only is she a super talented jeweller, she is patient, very clear with her explanations and has created a fun and friendly workshop. I've learnt so much already and am now hooked! I'm...

I spent a great day learning how to make a stool, using only hand tools. A canny instructor, great craic, and like minded folk made learning new skills a real pleasure. I have not stopped talking about the course since I got home.

What a great way to spend 3 days! It was with some trepidation that I arrived at The Rocking Horse Shop to become a student at the 'Carve a Head' course. I had minimal experience with woodwork having made some small wooden toys, but had never tried my hand at carving. The first thing to be said is how friendly...
