I did this course yesterday (full-day) as a Christmas present. I admit I was apprehensive when it came to it but that was just plain silly. My husband and I had a fabulous day and some wonderful pieces were made by everyone who attended, including the four absolute beginners. Two great tutors who were knowledgable, patient and ever vigilant of safety and quickly all worries about working with 'very hot', molten glass were allayed. Just a wonderful day which I want to repeat to learn new shapes.
