This course is simply great! It may seem a little pricey at first glance, but it does include food for two days (which is all delicious) and you come away with not one, but three, pieces (unless they crack). There is a limit on the size of the class and it also includes the assistance of the local glass-blowing expert and his kilns.
Jenny is an extremely gifted, calm and patient teacher and I echo the sentiment of another reviewer that she is generous and open to share her experience and knowledge. You can't fail to learn and the outcome is amazing.
One of our group was returning for the second time and I am tempted to do Christmas scenes later in the year! I am going to look up her etching course anyway.
Despite being able to do the process now (with all the help!) she does wonderful commissions too. Good luck Jenny, you're a star :)

Response from Jenny Ayrton:Thank you Gilly! All intact so far!
Super course. I'm not naturally very creative and was definitely a novice but with Jenny's help and patience I made some pieces I am really proud of. The glass works was an amazing place to be, we were made to feel very welcome. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Absolutely brilliant 2 days, I loved every minute and can’t recommend the course highly enough.
Jenny is generous and open in sharing her techniques and experience with the glass and makes wonderful tea & cakes to keep you going.

Response from Jenny Ayrton:Thank you Karen, I really enjoyed the weekend too!
Jenny is a superb teacher and we had a great afternoon, leaving proudly with an etched mirror and tumbler. She inspired us to be creative and individual, to produce high quality objects in a very relaxed atmosphere with lovely tea and homemade cake. Thank you so much Jenny. I will be recommending you to friends.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for a most amazing afternoon. A warm welcome helped to ease my nerves and with friendly expert advice I have created glass work which I am so very proud of. I am no artist but with your help, support and patience I have created Christmas gifts which are stunning.
I definitely have the glass etching bug and will continue to explore and develop my skills and abilities.
The other students were friendly, the cake was delicious and on leaving I felt relaxed and fulfilled.
Its very hard as a working mum to make time for yourself but I am so pleased I took this opportunity and will recommend it to all my friends and family.
Thank you so much Jenny

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon completing several projects, mirrors, dog treat jars and little nic-nac jars. The training / instruction was excellent giving us all the information to be able to come away and carry on learning at home making unique gifts for friends. We would highly recommend Jenny and this course to anyone who was interested in glass etching or just looking for a new hobby. Thank you Jenny.

This was one of the best workshops I have been on and it was so lovely to come away with 3 "pieces of art!". The first day was very informal and involved making the small models. We were provided with a lovely lunch and lots of cake. The group was small and intimate. The next day we went to Bovey Tracy and had a wonderful time doing our mould and then having them cast. We were all actively involved in the whole process. WE also had a fab lunch and more cake. All in all a great workshop and worth the expense.

Jenny was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend this.
I started with a glass etching class which was brilliant and progressed onto the 2 day workshop.
With Jenny’s expertise I was able to bring my design to life.
This would make a perfect gift!!
