Vicky reviewed: Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop

"My friend and I had an enjoyable experience with Jan. She took us through the techniques and safety aspects of the day. She modelled some possible designs and then let us make our own pieces. She was on hand to advise us, when needed and provided extra materials to enhance our designs. We had a very calm and enjoyable day and have produced pieces we feel proud of. We are looking forward to seeing how they look when fired."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

"Thanks Vicky for your review. I am really looking forward to seeing your pieces and will get them posted out to you as soon as they are "fully cooked". Kind regards Jan Simpson"

Sandy Arpino reviewed: Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop

"This is a fantastic course that I'd recommend to any beginner. Jan has a vast wealth of experience and skill, and is the perfect teacher. After a very useful demonstration we had enough knowledge to start on our own pieces - with Jan there to help and guide as much or as little as we wanted. I'm going back to work further in Jan's studio, confident that I'll learn lots more and develop my own skills quickly under her expert tuition."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

"Thank you Sandy. Look forward to seeing you soon:)"

"I did this course with Jan and came away with a lovely piece and the knowledge to try it all again at home. Totally got the bug, the tuition was clear, class size small and loads of tips and feedback on progress."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

"Thanks Fiona, it was great to see your finished piece after it had been polished. What a beautiful job. Look forward to watching you develop your new found hobby."

Susan Cranmer reviewed: Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop

"I had a great day with Jan. She is passionate about her craft and passes on great advice to a beginner. We were shown all the basic techniques to get us started on our own projects with help and suggestions to fire (no pun intended :-)) our imaginations. Jan allow us the use all her materials (which are considerable) so that we could experiment as well as making something beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend this course."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

"Thank youfor your lovely review Sue. Your piece is cooking in the kilns today and should be ready tomorrow."

Susan Howe reviewed: Stained glass for beginners - two day workshop

"I enjoyed the class and learned/achieved what I wanted. I love what I made and also did a recce at Reading Stained Glass a week later. Sadly I also discovered the processes and some of the materials were very harsh on my hands; probably should have worn disposable gloves and/or used barrier cream. I am really looking forward to doing the glass painting course."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

"Thank you for your review Susan and I am sorry your poor hands suffered. We are looking forward to seeing you for the painting course and glad that you had a great day. We will be putting on a few new special courses this summer with some very talented artists that you might enjoy."

Sue and Ron Owen reviewed: Stained glass for beginners - two day workshop

"What a fantastic 2 days we have had with Jan and Alison. The course was amazing! We learnt how to make a stained glass window, from learning how to use the tools, choosing and cutting our glass, cutting our lead, soldering and onto cementing and polishing. The finished pieces were beautiful we are both vey proud! Thank you to Jan and Alison for your wonderful tuition and patience! Cannot recommend this studio highly enough but beware it's addictive!! Glass fusing next for us!!"

Jules Hayward reviewed: Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop

"An absolutely fantastic course, Jan and Alison are both welcoming and very knowledgeable on the subject, making for an informative and enjoyable day. Plenty of theory, advice on tools and techniques, and enough time to get very 'hands on' with as much or little support as you need (as an absolute beginner I needed plenty!) The course is suitable for all abilities, from complete novice to those with more experience in working with glass. I would definitely recommend it."

"Great 2 days making a leaded glass panel under the watchful eye of Jan and Alison our very knowledgeable and skilled tutors Small groups meant plenty of help and support when needed but encouragement to work independently once feeling more confident Relaxed atmosphere and everyone felt they had really achieved something by the end of the 2 days"

Sue Watson reviewed: Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop

"A fantastic day, love all things glass, thought I would try to make something and hopefully learn a new skill in the process. The day is not disappoint, 3 of us on the course, all made to feel very welcome - chocolate cake as well! As described on the website, morning spent learning the 'technical bits & how to use the various tools safely', afternoon, the fun bit making our chosen piece. Will be going again! Looking forward to seeing the finished product once it comes out the kiln."

"I completed this course earlier in the week. Fantastic! Tuition is clear and easy to follow, and Jan is on hand to guide you through any techniques you may find tricky and offer alternatives where appropriate. Can't wait to see the result. As a practicing fine artist, I enjoyed stretching my repertoire and discovering a new area of work to consider. I would recommend this course for any stage in the artistic journey, from beginner to pro."

"A great day learning the basics of glass fusion including some good theory of tools materials and techniques and interspersed with lots of practical work, developing techniques and the designing and making a large piece of my own, with good support from Jan. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing day, totally absorbed in creative glass work. The lunch was great too."
