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

"I was a bit nervous as I went alone to the class and I hadn’t tried this craft before but I needed have been worried. Helen Cooper is a wonderful teacher, she was welcoming, friendly, encouraging and informative. I felt at ease and she made me feel as if I could trust my own instincts when I was creating my pieces of work. I had a lovely time and was thrilled with my finished pieces. The class was great value for money and everything was provided. I would thoroughly recommend this craft course and any being taught by Helen."

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

"Took my mum for her birthday, we had the most fabulous day. Made lots of pieces under Helens tutoring. She was patient and kind and we were delighted with our creations. She had even decorated the table for my mum - so thoughtful! I am not at all artistic but love to have a go - i am proudly displaying my coasters! I’d recommend this course to anyone it was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Don’t hesitate book now!"

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

I know you repeated a few times that you’re not at all artistic but you used colours and shapes very intuitively and the pieces you created were beautiful so I think you are! It was great spending time with you both and I hope you enjoy your next ‘creative adventure’ in October."

Yvonne Boyle reviewed: Fused glass items at Bonds with Helen from The Butterfly Effect Studio

"I attended a fused glass workshop without knowing what to expect. Helen was excellent at explaining what we needed to do and answered all our questions clearly and simply. She was very patient and attentive and really good at guiding us with helpful suggestions if needed. She is very kind and thoughtful and I had a great time. She put in a great deal of work into our pieces afterwards which meant that they were finished to a very high standard so she clearly puts in a lot of time and effort in behind the scenes. When we finally received our finished pieces they were beautifully packaged. The whole experience was very uplifting and I felt very cared for. I have already gifted a workshop to a family member as an experience I feel deserves to be shared."

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

" Good morning Yvonne, thank you for such a positive review, I’m very touched. I was so pleased you enjoyed the day and receipt of your stunning finished glass creations once fired. You embraced everything that was demonstrated and then gave it a unique twist- your beautifully delicate soap dish was a triumph! It was fascinating chatting with you and I now look forward to meeting your family member next week. Thanks again."

"I thoroughly recommend this glass fusion workshop. From start to finish, Helen was so informative, patient and encouraging. It was a wonderful chance to totally relax, to lose myself and just what the Doctor ordered. I cannot wait to have another go! Don't miss out on the chance to go on this workshop!! I rate this with an excellent 5"

" Hi Sue, thanks for your review, such kind words, I really appreciate you taking the time to submit this. I’m delighted you enjoyed your day, we had a giggle didn’t we? You worked so carefully on each piece and I thought your choice of colours was inspired.

"I have attended several of Helen's craft days and always have a wonderful time. Being creative in such a supportive environment is so relaxing and to learn a new craft/skill is always exciting too.

I never leave disappointed and am looking forward to attending more craft days soon."

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

"I booked this course for myself and a friend and her daughter after meeting Helen and seeing her lovely, creative work at a Christmas fair. We weren't disappointed. It was a lovely and relaxing day. Helen is a great teacher - encouraging and full of tips and ideas, but ultimately letting you create your own pieces in your own style. Creating fused glass jewellery is a completely new craft for me - I loved it - I am very pleased the items I made. Excellent value too."

Butterfly Effect Studio responded:

" Hi Sue, thanks for taking the time to review the course and I’m thrilled you all enjoyed the day. Each of you created such beautifully unique pieces , it never ceases to amaze me how many different ways the glass can be used. I hope Emily was able to use some of her skills and creations in her school art work too. Thanks again."

"This was the first time I’d done fused glass making and it was wonderful. Helen is a kind and patient teacher and she lets you run with whatever style you like.

I’ll be doing it again as soon as I can!"

"I absolutely loved making a journal! Helen is so patient and takes you through it step by step. She is so good at guiding you but at the same time encouraging you to believe in your own ideas so you end up with a journal that reflects your personality. Looking forward to making another one soon! Thanks Helen, you're a star!"

Anna Zaboronski reviewed: Unique handmade journals with Butterfly Effect Studio

"Helen is a very supportive, professional and knowledgeable artist. Under her tentative, kind and inspirational guidance I created two journals for my daughters-in-law, which they are using every day. Every time I join Helen's classes I start feeling more excited about my creative abilities and life in general. Classes are full of laughter and positive vibes!! Thank you, Helen!"

Having people like you in the group contributes to this, you appear to savour each challenge, are keen to try working with new media and your enthusiasm is infectious for other members of the group. I remember you putting so much thought into every page of both journals and the finished pieces were beautiful little ‘jewels’ I am sure your daughters-in-law will treasure. I look forward to seeing you again soon."
