I bought my friend and I a half day course with Julie for a morning in September, it was a grey miserable day out but we were welcomed and enjoyed our creative morning guided by Julie and were both really happy with our colourful glass waves. An all round great crafty experience 😀
My daughter and I spent a lovely morning at Julie’s workshop. She was so friendly and helpful, and despite the necessary “Covid” measures, we felt relaxed and safe.
We were delighted with our wave picture and coaster set, me especially as I am not ‘arty’ in the least. My picture is now in pride of place in my lounge. Thank you Julie xx
Response from Julies Handcrafted Glass:You say your not arty but that didn’t show your works is beautiful . Glad you had a good time. Thankyou .
I have recently visited Julie to do a half day workshop. It was very well organised and I felt very safe with the PPE Julie has in place. Julie had time to explain and show me how to create my glass wave I made. I am so pleased with the result. I will be going back to do Christmas decorations with family.
We spent two very relaxing and fun hours doing a taster workshop yesterday afternoon. Julie is an excellent host and teacher and we are absolutely delighted with the results of our efforts.
I would 100% recommend her workshops.
My friend kindly treated me to a fused glass taster workshop for my birthday. We arrived uncertain about what to expect, but Julie was so welcoming and a great teacher. Her introduction was clear and informative, and under her expert tuition we created two wonderful glass pictures each, which we are both really proud of and which serve as a lovely reminder of a gorgeous day together. Thanks so much Julie!
A fantastic morning decorating coasters, Julie was a great patient teacher. A very calm and very organised couple of hours.
We were delighted with our finished items and looking forward to doing the Christmas decorations.
This is highly recommended many thanks Julie

My Mam and I recently attended a taster workshop with Julie - it was brilliant. Julie is just a wonderful teacher, providing guidance and instruction where needed & really encouraging you to get your crafty/arty side going! I really loved that the workshop was just my Mam and I as it was given as a gift, so it was lovely to have some quality time together. We both made coasters and with Julie's kind guidance, they have all turned out super well and we are really pleased with them. In terms of materials available, Julie has it all which really kick started our imaginations. Honestly cannot recommend Julie and her workshops more highly.
This was a Christmas present from my daughter. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and Julie was really attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Julie has a vast stock of items to make whatever you would like. There are so many possibilities of creating a unique item for yourself or family. I made coasters, each one totally different by using the various glasses that were available and tools to create my designs. Highly recommended.
Response from Julies Handcrafted Glass:Thank you Jenny was a pleasure meeting you and being able to help you create your coasters.
I and a friend have attended 2 of Julie’s workshops and we are extremely keen to book a third! Everything about the workshops is tip top - very supportive without being not overly prescriptive. Julie’s enthusiasm and knowledge shine through. An all round excellent experience which I highly recommend.
We were given gift vouchers last Christmas, which we used last month. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon workshop. Julie obviously has a great knowledge of her craft, and has the knack of imparting it to others, although it was too much to take in. Julie is constanly available to help and advise. Finally, love my "masterpiece". Highly recommended. Thank you, Julie
My daughter purchased a session as a birthday surprise and something we could do together. I was initially a bit nervous because I'm not creative and my daughter is. However, Julie soon put me at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed my session. I was quite blown away by the amount of different products in Julie's workshop - lots of beautiful colours and different textures that I found it hard to choose; like being a kid in a sweetie shop. Julie was very friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging. She was there each step of the process and gave advice but not in an overbearing manner so I felt very comfortable attempting to produce my own glass objects. Julie's mince pies and apple pies which went down well with our tea/coffee. I had a thoroughly enjoyable session and will be returning.
Had a lovely morning with 3 friends yesterday making Christmas decorations. Julie was very friendly & knowledgeable offering us advice when we needed it & explaining all the results using the different types of glass would make to the finished items. She gave us all the information we needed to design 2 decorations each & supplied tea / coffee cake & biscuits to keep us going! A hugely enjoyable experience & looking forward to doing another course soon.
PS I have just collected our finished items & they are all fab! Thank you so much Julie
Attended a half day workshop with my friend Christine. We both thought the workshop was excellent. Julie was friendly and made us feel very relaxed and welcome. We both would and have recommend Julie's workshops as it is a lovely positive experience.
I took part in a half day workshop with my mother, i have once made glass pendants and my mother no experience. Julie explained the process and materials then we were free to make our items with Julie to guide us when neededed. We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Julie was so friendly. We will be booking another workshop session again.
All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our half day workshop with Julie and are very pleased with the finished products. We chose to make earrings, coasters, small plaques and a wave picture. Julie talked us through the different types of glass available and encouraged us to use all forms. There was so much to choose from and we are hoping to book again so that we can learn more and add to our current collection.
I did one of Julie's taster sessions a few months ago (apologies for taking so long to review it!). I'm not a crafty/arty person at all and didn't really believe I'd be able to produce anything worth putting in the kiln. But Julie is a great teacher, very helpful and relaxed with lots of ideas to help anyone stuck for inspiration. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and I was delighted with the 2 coasters I made. I really recommend trying one of Julie's courses, whatever your ability level. Thanks Julie!
My sister paid for us both to attend this taster class in fused glass for my Birthday. I am into my crafts and painting but had never done any glasswork before. My sister claims not to be "arty" or "creative" but I think she just hadn't discovered something crafty that she is particularly good at because the coasters she created were amazing. Julie was a fantastic host and a great teacher, explaining everything and giving us free rein but also offering helpful suggestions where necessary! The range of materials available to use on our coasters was phenomenal - we particularly loved the glass pieces with flowers/bees on and the iridescent glass. My sister was able to collect our coasters after they'd been in the kiln a couple of days later. They will be used with pride!!! Thank you Julie for a fantastic taster session. 😃
I purchased the taster workshop as a present for my friend, we went went along together and both had a great couple of hours ( and a little bit extra time as Julie didn't usher us out of the door as soon as our time was up!!! ).
We were greeted by Julie and given lots of information and top tips from her whilst we both enjoyed a nice coffee and biscuits. The choice of glass colours, styles and quirky pieces were fantastic. The design of the coasters was ours to make. Julie did show us lots of samples that she had previously designed and fused in her kiln, to give us inspiration. Julie was so patient and encouraging.
In such a short space of time I really feel as though I have learnt so much.
We were very pleased with our two coasters each and left them in Julie's capable hands to fuse in her kiln, after only 2 days I received the message that our coaster were ready to collect.
I would highly recommend this workshop, we both feel inspired to learn more...
Julie was an excellent host and teacher. We had a fun afternoon making our items and they all turned out great. A top tip would be to go with a bit of an idea of what you’d like to make. We dithered for too long, but Julie’s advice and support was a great help. We’ve booked the Christmas workshop, it was that much fun!
