Linda reviewed: Intermediary Glass fusing workshop with Laura Hart of Hart Glass

"I have just completed a three day course at Laura's wonderful studio. I learnt how to give glassware a truly professional finish, make freeform moulds and how to manage the different firings to give different results. She encouraged me to be as imaginative as I wanted to be and after explaining what to do she left me to it. That is exactly the way I prefer to learn and Laura understood that without being told. It is that level of intuition that makes for a really good teacher. And she is. I came away with a lot of technical knowledge about the way glass behaves in different hot and cold forms, which I can now take forward into something of my own."

Hart Glass responded:

" Hi Linda, Thank you kindly for such a lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with me and I look forward to seeing future results as your work progresses. Well done!"

"I had a really exciting and interesting weekend with Laura. The studio is bright and light and very comfortable to work in. I was able to do so much over the weekend, from cutting glass, grinding, pulling glass through a flame and twisting glass. I used glass powder, fritts and strands as well as choosing from a huge range of coloured glass. Laura is patient and very clear when instructing you. I was thrilled with my end pieces. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone."

"Thankyou very much Laura for a wonderful day. Something I've never thought of doing and unless a friend had invited me would never have experienced it. We were given guidance for every aspect of glass work and although I found it daunting to begin with, and had a fear of making massive mistakes, I loved every second and the time went so quickly.I was also thrilled with what I achieved in a very short time. Great lunch too. Thankyou so much for a brilliant day."

"What a lovely day! Laura's taster day ( bought by my husband as a present ) was so enjoyable. Not ever having thought about doing anything like this I was quite nervous. There really was no need to be, as Laura soon put me at ease and is such a good teacher with so much patience that you can soon start using things you do not know anything about. As I said what a lovely day with the bonus of an absolutely fab lunch provided by, guess who, Laura of course."
