"Fantastic class! Hubby and I did the 2.5hour beginners class with Helen. Totally exceeded our expectations, we had a choice of things we could make from a curved piece to sit on a windowsill to a dish. We also had free rein to come up with our own designs, although Helen had lots of pieces on display if we struggled for inspiration. After some practice cuts and breaks, we started on our designs. Helen is a fantastic teacher, able to demonstrate and guide whilst ensuring we did the work on our own pieces. Her purpose built workshop is spacious, light and bright (not to mention clean and COVID safe) and she had a huge selection of materials for us to use. We had to leave our prepared pieces with Helen for firing and were delighted when we were able to collect them a couple of weeks later to see how they’d turned out. I would definitely recommend this workshop. I’m already sketching ideas and will be looking to return to make some more pieces soon."

Helen Rose Glass responded:

" Ah thanks Louise. It's so lovely to hear how much you both enjoyed the workshop...and are prepping mote ideas too...you're hooked lol"

"Helen was more than accommodating in designing a course around my needs and experience (or lack of) within the world of glass. Helen is an excellent tutor and would recommend anyone attending a course with her."

"I have completed several courses with Helen. Each time she teaches me something new I feel thrilled that I am capable of creating it. She is a wonderful teacher and knows how to suggest tweaks to get the most out of any project. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn something new and creative. 5 stars!"

"had a great time, thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had a bit of experience previously but had forgotten a lot and Helen gave me confidence and great advice and direction in a friendly and interested way. She really is a superb teacher, I learnt more from her in one day than I had in the past over several sessions with someone else. Will definitely return for another class."

"I have been wanting to try my hand at fused glass for a while and was so pleasd when I found Helen's classes. I decided to treat myself and a friend for my birthday and we could not have chosen a better way to spend the day! Helen soon put us at our ease and has a really good way of communicating all the skills needed to cut glass etc. We were soon cutting away for our designs without even giving it a second thought and she was so generous with the supplies. When we picked up our first time efforts we were amazed by how well they turned out! It's really got us hooked and when we get the time we are hoping to return for another creative session. We would both thoroughly recommend the classes to anyone!"

"The day course is wonderfully informative, educational and fun! I was surprised how quickly we learnt to create pieces, and Helen's resources seem endless. If you've ever stood in a craft shop wanting to try everything you see, but couldn't afford to buy everything, this day course allows you to craft away to your hearts desire without any material outlay. I made 7 items, used lots of materials, gained experience, had the lovely Helen on hand at all times to answer my questions and guide me, and made personalised gifts for my friends and family - what a bargain!!! There's a reason this lovely lady is always booked up. Please do not hesistate to book this course."

"I have done two, and booked a third, course with Helen making fused glass bunting and then Christmas light catchers. She is patient and encouraging, and is good at letting you do things for yourself, but always willing to advise and help when asked. She has really inspirational examples to show, is generous with time and materials, and I'm already plotting my next designs!"

"What a fabulous day! I had a great time at the fused glass workshop yesterday, making three surprisingly substantial pieces. Helen is clearly a very talented artist and a skilled teacher too. Her easy-going style had us feeling creative in no time and my friends and I are all chomping at the bit to collect our masterpieces and book ourselves into another workshop with Helen. I can't wait!"

"Cracking course (not literally). After my first course I was hooked, been back a few times and built upon my skills. Helen is an excellent teacher and also brilliant with kids, I took my 11 year old and he enjoyed it so much he wants to go again and there are not many craft courses that appeal to boys! Planning a few more sessions for this year and even looking to set up a Rotary Club session."

"Spent an amazing day with 2 friends at Helen's house. I was stunned at how many different pieces we were able to make and how many different techniques she taught (and re-taught!) us. Helen is fun, patient, encouraging and so creative. We were made very welcome in her lovely home and I am sure this is only the start of my glass fusion journey. Can't wait to go back and collect my masterpieces. Great venue for small workshops, fantastic teacher, amazing value for money - highly recommended."

"I went to one of these work shops a few years ago and loved it. I loved it so much that I enrolled in a course with the local adult education thinking it would be much the same. What a mistake that was, I learnt more in one day on Helens course than in 3 months with the adult ed course. I also left Helen's course with some beautiful items and nothing I would show the dog from the other course. I would highly recommend this course as it is money well spent and a great fun day"

"I have been on lots of Helen's glass fusing workshops and I am completely addicted! Helen is a great teacher, patient, encouraging and has helped me to develop my ideas and skills. The workshops are fun, relaxed and informative. With only a few students you get lots of one to one teaching /advice from Helen much better than large classes. I recommend Helen's workshops for anyone who wants to give glass fusing a go or has previous experience and wants to learn more. Can't wait to do more fusing."

"Wow, what a day. My sister & i met Helen at a Christmas craft fair. We loved what she had done, so booked in for her Christmas glass decorations. It was a half day (2.5hrs) course, but in that time we learnt so much. Now cant wait to pick up our finished items. We made a Christmas tree tea light each, tree hanging decorations, & items for jewellery. So much in so little time. Thank you Helen, i think we've found a new hobby. Looking forward to more classes in the new year."
