Janet Rowsell reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"My friend and I really enjoyed our glass fusing experience and will definately be returning for another days course in 2023. Amanda made us very welcome, she made us feel as if we would be able to achieve from the minuite we walked into her well equipped studio. All instructions were clear and repeated if necessary. We can't wait for the postman to bring our finished items. The homemade flapjacks and excellent lunch was an added bonus! "

"Having done a couple of courses previously I both enjoyed and appreciated the time Amanda spent on going through some of the theory and techniques and the emphasis throughout on safety. Lots of very useful practical advice. Kiln carving was new to me and the finished results our group produced were I think excellent and don’t look like a first attempt by beginners, thanks to Amanda’s excellent support and guidance!"

Claire reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt quite tired at the end from concentrating so hard! There's a lot to learn and you can choose to do something straightforward, with sort-of guaranteed success, or if you are a bit bolder you can try something harder and Amanda will help and advise; she is very patient and supportive of your attempts. Lunch was very good indeed, as were flapjack and coffee! Thanks to Amanda for a stimulating day, encouraging our creative inclinations."

"A full on day, packed from start to finish with expert help and advice from Amanda. Lunch was an added bonus and much needed after a busy morning. Good to see Amanda adhering to full health and safety measures throughout."

Pink House Glass responded:

" So glad you enjoyed your day Alyson :) You all made some lovely things. As for the H&S, it is often over looked but so important, safe and happy students is my goal, I guard the safety of my students as seriously as I guard my flapjack recipe! Ax"

Barbara Field reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"This course was a birthday present from my husband and I was a bit unsure and nervous about attending because of my beginners abilities. But I needn't have worried as this was an excellent course with an amazing, friendly and very patient tutor. The course was held in the Tregarth studio which was very spacious and comfortable to work in with excellent facilities. I liked the separate social area to ensure drinking & eating was not near glass cutting area. Health & Safety issues were taken very seriously by Amanda. All glass, tools etc were provided including an excellent lunch (I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed Eton Mess - very yummy) I was looked after very well by Amanda and it was a joy to spend time discussing projects and the samples, I brought down with me. This was a purely selfish day, as I was on a one to one course, but I learnt so much. Within15 minutes Amanda had sorted out my problem with cutting glass and then when on to improve my fusing techniques, use of different tools and glass. I was encouraged to be creative and to change my mind set for a more positive outlook - "there are no disasters in glass fusing just learning pieces". I now document all my work and learn from them and improve. The whole day when too quickly and my overriding feeling is that I spent most of the day laughing and having fun. Learning is not a hardship when a course is this enjoyable. It was a wrench to leave but I left with an amazing floral fused glass piece that I still cannot believe I made. Thank you Amanda for a brilliant day and encouraging me to progress on my journey. I would recommend Amanda's course to anyone interested in Glass fusing."

Pink House Glass responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Barbara. It was great to be part of your fused glass journey and I am absolutely sure with your enthusiasm, commitment and detailing your processes, you are set for some exciting and successful outcomes. There are no mistakes, just learning and design opportunities!"

"My family gave me vouchers for my birthday for a second visit as I loved it so much the first time round. Second time was even better..Amanda is an amazing teacher..encouraging, fun, pushes you just enough, understanding and focuses with each students individuality. My friend and I had the best day. We felt as safe as possible during these wonky times and of course the food was fabulous..again."

Pink House Glass responded:

" Thank you Rachel, so pleased to hear you enjoyed your second visit, I had such a lovely day with you too, you both produced some gorgeous pieces!"

"Had another fantastic day with Amanda - this was my second visit, and just as fun and satisfying as the first. Amanda is a great teacher, always on hand to help and encourage, whatever your level of experience or artistic ability. Her delicious food just adds an extra element of enjoyment to the whole day. Highly recommended!"

Mandy Jones reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"What a fabulous day. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and offered tea/coffee and homemade cake. Amanda was so friendly and explained how the day would run and what we would make. Always on hand for advice, to enthuse and encourage, Amanda allowed us to let our creative juices flow. A delicious homemade lunch was devoured after making our first piece amid much excitement as we swapped ideas. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in having a go. It was just such an enjoyable day and I have two pieces of glass to display. Thoroughly enjoyable."

"Had a really excellent day with Amanda, she is a great tutor who puts you at ease and helps make your imagination into reality. I am so pleased with my platter made by kiln carving and my fused glass piece is just how I wanted it to look. I will doing more days with Amanda as my head is full of other designs I would like to make and to have more superb lunches!"

Cathy Olliver reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"My husband bought me a one to one glass fusing day with Amanda for my big birthday last month. Amanda was fantastic right from the moment he emailed her, responding quickly to emails and offering excellent advice. A date was soon set for my experience with no fuss whatsoever. On the day Amanda immediately put me at ease as I was initially a little bit nervous and wasn't at all sure if I'd be able to translate what was in my mind into a piece of glass artwork. We talked my ideas through and agreed what was possible and lots of help and advice was offered. Soon we had a plan! The process of cutting, practicing and arranging was soon underway and by the end of the day my artwork was ready for the kiln. A day with Amanda is highly recommended, and was such a fantastic birthday present. I came away feeling proud of what I'd achieved, having never done anything like it before in my life. Thank you Amanda for such a great experience!"

BARBARA A MASON-WALSHAW reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"My husband brought me this day as a birthday present and I consider it one of the best presents I have ever received. From the moment I arrived Amanda made me feel welcome and at ease. Luckily there were only 2 of us on the course, so we had her undivided attention all day. Not only was it informative but also incredible fun and at the end if it, I have 2 lovely (even though I say so myself) glass keepsakes, which are proudly displayed for everyone to see. I cannot recommend this course highly enough to anyone and I will definitely be going back. As a side note, the food that Amanda prepared for us was sublime. Thank you once again Amanda."

Hayley Vice reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"In August, my best friend and I were gifted this course for our Christmas present. One thing I can say is it was one of the best gifts I could have asked for. I got to make everlasting memories, create beautiful glass work and enjoy delicious food thanks to Amanda (Pink House Glass)! Amanda made us both feel welcome as soon as she saw us walk towards the studio. With a witty and bubbly personality, and a very patient nature, she helped us see how much fun you can have with glass fusing. Half way through the day I truly thought ‘how could this get any better?’. Then we found out Amanda had made the extremely tasty banquet for lunch. The dishes were heaven on a plate and we weren’t left hungry. If you see this, Amanda, thank you for making us feel so welcome! It was an experience both of us will treasure for a long long time. We hope to be back again and learn more!"

Angela & Jacob reviewed: Half day glass fusing workshop

"Myself and my 12 year old son had an amazing afternoon with Amanda while on our holiday in Cornwall. My son is just starting to show an interest in 'art' but can lack confidence with new skills. Amanda was absolutely amazing with him. She was simple, clear and supportive with her explanations of how to work with glass (and did not mind going over things again!) He had a wonderful time and is also thrilled with the outcome of his efforts. Thank you so much for your time, expertise and care!"

Rachel Shelton reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"I had looked forward to my glass day for months and it was no disappointment. Amanda was an excellent teacher, but more than that, with the two other students on my day, she made it such a special time. We learnt a lot, laughed a lot, ate a lot of delicious homemade food and I really want to book another day as soon as I can... a lot!! The two projects were perfect for many levels of ability and there were so many resources and materials to help us in her enviable studio. It was a fantastic day."

Trish Brand reviewed: Half day glass fusing workshop

"We had an excellent, fun and creative afternoon, and learnt so much from Amanda, who is very generous with her knowledge and encouragement. Amanda's enthusiasm is infectious and we were delighted with how much we achieved in such a short space of time. The studio is light, airy and comfortable and the cream tea delicious. Great afternoon. Wished we lived closer so we could visit again. Thank you."

"My son and I had a brilliant time with Amanda in her well equipped studio. Amanda is very welcoming and encouraging. My son in particular, went from being very cautious and lacking in confidence, to skilfully cutting glass and designing his projects in a really short time - lovely to see!"

Chris Dade reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"What an amazing course! Amanda's studio is bright and airy with everything you need. We were welcomed with coffee and home made biscuits (delicious!), before Amanda set about telling us the origins of her glass and the different techniques which could be used. At this early stage my mind went totally blank and, not being very creative (or so I thought), I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to make. However, with Amanda's guidance, patience and enthusiasm I created two amazing pieces which I'm absolutely thrilled with. My husband and sister-in-law also attended the course with me and had brilliant results. The lunch was delicious and I discovered that I do like creme brûlée after all - but only Amanda's! We're looking forward to attending more classes very soon!! Chris"

Lindsey reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"I had a wonderful day at Pink House Glass. This was an amazing course and through Amanda's excellent tuition and guidance I came away with two beautiful pieces of glass art which I enjoy every day. I wish I could have stayed in her studio creating fused glass art all weekend. I'm looking forward to an intermediate course with Amanda to further develop the skills learnt with her on this day - and those delicious lunches will always be an added bonus! I can't recommend this course highly enough."

"I went on this course with my sister as part of her birthday present. What an amazingly lovely day we had. Amanda, who runs the course is simply lovely. We came away with lots of knowledge, 2 amazing pieces each, very full tummies (as Amanda also happens to be an amazing cook!) and a huge desire to do more and more glass work. Thank you very much. Highly recommended and great value😊"

"A really good value course taught in a relaxed way. Great lunch and hospitality from Amanda. I really liked having two very different items to take away - the board/plate is really useful as well being beautiful. Really enjoyed the whole experience and would happily do the course again."

Christine Boswell-Munday reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"Brilliant day and learnt so much, from basic health and safety to cutting glass and learning 2 different ways of creating a piece of artwork. In my case I created 2 wall hangings, but the options are varied. Amanda is a fantastic, teacher and explains everything as you go along and there is plenty of time to put what you learn into action. I was really pleased with the 2 pieces I took home Lunch was great and all dietary requirements are catered for. The workshop makes a great day out with friends or is ideal as a gift voucher and I will certainly return again early next year, to learn more."

jane pickles reviewed: Full day introduction to glass fusing course.

"An excellent day out for 4 good friends looking for something new exciting and different, with very little or no experience or expectations beforehand. We each have very different artistic viewpoints and this was reflected in the variety of work we produced - all very different an interesting. Amanda was an excellent tutor who took us carefully through each of 2 processes we learnt and gave us plenty of ideas and inspiration into what to attempt. She showed many examples of what was possible and of past student's work. (perhaps a little too much choice here - it is possibly best to go with a few ideas). Good attention to health and safety, and very tasty homemade refreshments and lunch. Looking forward to an intermediate course please Amanda"
