Emma reviewed: Fused glass workshop at The Butterfly Effect Studio near Halford

"I had a wonderful day on this course, which was a birthday present. Helen had even laid on birthday decorations and a cake! I’m not particularly artistic but was able to draw a lot of inspiration from Helen’s work and the pieces that the other attendees were creating. I learnt loads and managed to produce coasters and sun catchers that I’m really proud of. Helen’s a great teacher and has some really good advice."

" Hi Emma, I appreciate you taking the time to review the workshop and am pleased you enjoyed your day, especially as it was a birthday gift. It was great meeting you and I’m so impressed with the creations on which you worked so diligently.

Jodie Caller reviewed: Fused glass workshop with Helen from The Butterfly Effect Studio in Halford.

"Thank you for an amazing glass fused course. Me and my partner had the most amazing day. Helen is an amazing teacher. We had plenty of time to practise. We definitely got our monies worth, we could make as much or as little as we wanted and Helen had all the tools and glass that we needed, we were spoilt for choice. One of my pieces had a little problem in the kiln but the amazing Helen allowed me to come back and remake this item. We were both so happy with what we had made. Helen is amazing, we will definitely be back and will be recommending Helen to our family and friends."

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

" Hi Jodie, thank you for taking the time to review my fused glass workshop and for your kind words. You were both so enthusiastic during the day and the items you created were delightful. I appreciated your patience and I’m so pleased you were happy with the outcome- your penguin panel was a triumph! I hope you and Rob put your fused glass creations in pride of place once you move into your new home??"

Jane Burras reviewed: Fused glass workshop with Helen from The Butterfly Effect Studio in Halford.

"Helen is a wonderful teacher, she allowed us to settle in first (we were a group of seven friends, and there was a lot of chat to start with!) Then she introduced us to everything we needed to know and let us go our own creative ways. It was amazing how we all produced quite different work. Helen gave us plenty of advice and suggestions whenever we needed them so that we felt supported and able to get the best out of our work without being dictated to. Everyone really enjoyed the day and we were thrilled with our final pieces. I would highly recommend this course, we will be going again!"

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

" Hi Jane, I’m touched by your kind words and appreciate you taking the time to review the workshop. It was such a lovely day spent with like-minded people, I imagine your other arty/crafty sessions are always good fun too. I’m pleased you enjoyed it and loved the items you created, your bird was so full of character! Hope to see you all again in the future."

"A great day with Helen, clear explanations, support when needed and suggestions of what would work well, but it is my work and I am so happy with the results. Relaxing, fun, laughter and tools that were easy for beginners to use, which is not always the case. I will go again."

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

" Hi Anne, I really appreciate you taking the time to submit your review at such a busy time of year. I’m delighted you enjoyed it as I know you have attended several workshops at other venues. Both you and Marion created some beautiful items, I imagine they have pride of place in your home. Thanks and it would be lovely to see you again at future workshops."

Pamela reviewed: Fused glass workshop at The Butterfly Effect Studio near Halford

"It was the first time I have ever tried fused glass. I was very nervous when I went into the class but Helen immediately put me at my ease and clearly explained the process. Helen had brought items to show the finished products and encouraged us to experiment with all the lovely coloured glass she had brought along. She was available at each stage and gave me confidence. It was a lovely workshop - only 8 of us so individual attention. The pieces we had created were taken off by Helen for firing and were delivered a few days later - wonderful! So exciting to see the pieces. I will definitely be booking on another course!!!"
