"i really enjoyed my afternoon with Ricky. He threw me straight into making the first glass object , clearly explaining everything as we went along. By the end I'd made a solid glass ball, and 3 blown hollow objects. I'd learned some of the basic magical techniques of how you get the colours to swirl inside the glass, how to squeeze and pull out the glass to make a stem, and much more. As I thought, glass is amazing stuff, and it was great fun."

Creative Vibe Glassblowing responded:

"I really enjoyed my glassblowing session with Ricky - I didn't know what to expect but I enjoyed every moment and was really chuffed with my glass creations by the end of it all! Ricky explained things step by step and there was a good balance of me having a go and Ricky providing expert guidance. Lots of fun - would totally recommend this experience!"

"Extraordinary! Such a fantastic lesson… I spent the entire time fascinated, interested, amazed and delighted. And utterly baffled that I actually created some things… Highly recommended. What an insight into a magical skill."

Patrik reviewed: Creative Vibe - Glassblowing Sessions

"The glassblowing session exceeded our expectations in so many ways - it was the best crafting experience we have ever had. The session was very fluid (no pun intended) and was so much better than other courses offered that involve multiple students per session - it was two of us only, meaning we had plenty of one-on-one's with Ricky and got to learn much more. It was a pleasure to learn from Ricky, who was very nice and explained the art of glassblowing very well (clearly transmitting his enthusiasm and passion for it). He also helped guide you in the process at the same time as giving you some independence while creating your piece, which we thought was the perfect balance. And got to create four pieces as well! Can't recommend enough."

"What a fun afternoon! Ricky is a great teacher and explained all very clearly. After a quick demo we got straight on to practical glass handling and the time flew by. There were a pair of us and we each made 4 items of increasing complexity. Very interesting and learned a lot. Can’t recommend enough!"

"Ricky is an excellent teacher - very professional and explains things clearly. He is very patient, and we had a blast creating four pieces each during our session! My partner had an out of the box idea for one of his creations, and Ricky was very supportive and offered suggestions on how to execute it, with lots of help along the way! Highly recommend."

"My husband had always wanted to try glass blowing so I bought a half day session for the both of us as a Christmas gift. I was very apprehensive; my husband super excited. We had to reschedule because I double booked myself and Ricky at Creative Vibes was really accommodating. We had a fabulous time! Ricky was a really patient and enthusiastic tutor. The session was really hands-on and we got to make 4 pieces each. My husband had the best time, as did I, and we have already recommended the course to friends."

"A delayed experience due to the Covid situation and aged parents concerns. Which was really annoying, however, was easily re-booked on another date - and was definitely worth the wait! Absolutely fabulous. We felt safe and Ricky is an extraordinarily enthusiastic, knowledgeable teacher - able to communicate instructions very well, with masses of patience and understanding. One of the most smiley people I have ever met! Highly recommend this - we both made four items, each a progression from the previous. I can't believe what we covered in such a short time. Ricky ensured we did everything - from gathering through to swinging the glass to make our vases... we have left four pieces to gradually cool in his kiln - and we can't wait to see them! A stupendous day - which was well worth the wait. Marvellous. If you are just wondering about it - go ahead and book - you will love it. Really very good indeed."

Neil Murdoch reviewed: Creative Vibe - Glassblowing Sessions

"I had the course "Creative Vibe - glassblowing private sessions 9th June. Ricky was an excellent coach, his instructions were clear and concise. Taking you though each part of the process. I would highly recommend anyone who feels the urge to try Glassblowing to go to see Ricky Keech. The three hours just flew by, can't wait to see the fished glass next week. Course “Just Brilliant” well worth the 2 hour drive! Neil Murdoch ( Sheffield)"

"In addition to my previous review, I have now received my glass items. Due to a mix-up, on my part, I didn't pick them up on the day arranged. Ricky very kindly posted them to me and they arrived the next day. I have to reiterate that Ricky is a thoroughly nice man."

Cheryl Dennis reviewed: Creative Vibe - Glassblowing Sessions

"What can I say, as a collector of glass and having visited glassworks all over the country my ambition was to 'have a go' myself. I can't express strongly enough what a wonderful experience I had under the guidance of Ricky. His instruction was clear and easy to understand, at no time did I feel unsafe while handling the hot glass, something I had been a bit nervous about. I progressed through the various techniques and produced a few items that I am quite proud of. This was something on my bucket list and as an 'old' dear in her 70s the experience was very satisfying , I would reccommend it to anyone. It's never to late to try something new."

"The glassblowing was an amazing experience and I high recommend it to anyone. As it was a private class we got a lot of time to ask questions and practise different processes. Ricky was really lovely and it was a great learning experience - I would be keen to go back in the future."
