"I had a great session and thoroughly enjoyed my morning in the fused glass picture curve workshop. It's something I've never done before but it was extremely relaxed and expertly guided.
Can't wait to see the finished product!! "
"I really enjoyed the fused glass workshop.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was relaxed. The time flew by.
I am really pleased with how my finished article has turned out and have already recommended it to my friends"
"We all really enjoyed our afternoon with Charlotte. We were very glad we booked the 3 hour course, as once we got started we all had lots of ideas of things to make and didn't want the session to end. Charlotte was very helpful and encouraging. We can't wait to see how our items turn out after firing."
"I had a brilliant morning with Jane, on the 3 hour course. Once we were shown the technique of glass cutting and fusing Jane showed us examples of what we might like to make and provided a large selection of materials. Really relaxing! I would happily have spent a whole day there!! "
"I really enjoyed my morning with Jane at Glass Quarter Design. I wanted to learn about fused glass and Jane was really knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. I was shown lots of different techniques from cutting and smashing glass to drilling. I drew out my design and Jane guided me suggesting subtle colour changes and ideas. I could quite happily have stayed all day ? Really looking forward to collecting my finished, fired item next weekend. I will definitely be back to do another glass course soon. Thank-you!!"
"This course was amazing! It was my first attempt at doing anything to do with glass, I'd been wanting to try something for a while and it did not disappoint.
Jane and her helper were amazing with teaching us about cutting glass, giving advice and making us all feel relaxed and creative so that we could make something unique. Brilliant day.
The studio was amazing and in a brilliant location, with lots of other arty shops and studios to look around afterwards. Will definitely be going back and would highly recommend!"
"I really enjoyed the course. There were 5 of us and the range of ceramic and glass was extensive so everyone could find the colours and styles that reflected them. Sarah is a natural and the tuition was clear and friendly, but our own preferences and choices was encouraged so nobody ended up with the same as anyone else and it felt genuinely creative. I am so pleased with what I have made. The slate background with the mosaic feels substantial and artisan in quality. I travelled a distance for this course and it was worth the effort and worth every penny. The café was lovely for lunch and cake and it was reassuring to find a large carpark and nice toilets on site. I am booking to make another as soon as I can as Sarah had a wonderful seagull that would look great in our bathroom!"
"Did this course today and had a blast. Shown how to cut glass, ways of using coloured glass and moulds of different shapes. The glass was in every colour you could think of and possibilities of design endless. I made a couple of pieces and really pleased with my end results and looking forward to my work once fired.
Jane and her co-helper were very helpful, patient and created a wonderfully relaxed environment. A great way to treat yourself and made something beautiful."
"My daughter and I did the fused glass dish workshop ( half day), and absolutely loved it ! we had no previous experience but managed to produce 2 beautiful glass dishes that we're really proud of. The course is taught in a relaxed and friendly way, with lots of help and cups of tea.
we are now thinking about going back to do another glass based course at the amazing Red House Glass Cone in Stourbridge"
"What a brilliant day my brother and I had on Sarah’s bead making course. We were complete beginners but Sarah’s skill in the art, her excellent teaching style and ability to make us feel so comfortable, saw us both coming away with several beautiful pieces of bead jewellery. It was addictive - we are coming back! Thank you Sarah."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the half day workshop with Sarah. As a complete beginner I was really apprehensive to start with. Sarah is a very good teacher and within no time I felt at ease and was able to make some beautiful beads. I'm very happy with the finished product and will be definitely returning to create some more!! Highly recommended!"
"I really enjoyed this class. Jane is a great teacher and a lovely person. She makes you feel relaxed and the environment is creative and comfortable. I was so pleased with how much I learnt, especially since I'm a complete novice! I can't believe I made my coasters and neither do my friends when they pop round for a brew and use them!"
"This course really let's you be experimental and inspired by all of the materials available to you. Jane is an excellent and relaxed tutor with an anything goes attitude and she'll offer experience and advice to bring your ideas, no matter how wacky, to life.
Such a worthwhile afternoon and i'do recommended it to all."
"Loved every moment of this. Jane is kind, patient, funny, perfect combination in a great teacher (also makes good coffee).
My first time but still made some lovely pieces to bring home.
