Gemma M reviewed: Glass Fusing Course for beginners

"I absolutely loved this course - Eleanor is a fantastic teacher, and the scope of what we covered was just right. The workshop is a treasure trove of lots of different types of glass art, and it was lovely to be in a really creative working environment. No technique or tool seemed to be unavailable to us and the amount of glass we could use, and the specific styles and types of project we could undertake were limited by our imaginations only. I would thoroughly recommend Rainbow Glass Studios for the glass fusing course, and if I only lived nearer I would definitely make it a regular haunt of mine!"

Stephen Pod reviewed: Glass Fusing Course for beginners

"I attended the beginners glass fusing course a few weeks ago and enjoyed the most wonderful day. It was educational, interesting, fun and thoroughly addictive. Richard structures the day to give the right balance of teaching and doing, in fact you are giving a huge amount of license and materials to create your own projects. Richard guides you along the way and gently nudges you if your ideas are a little too ambitious..... as mine were! Although not the main point, it is worth saying that in my opinion the course is also great value for money, in addition to all the knowledge I acquired, I ended up with 4 thoroughly satisfying pieces of fused glass. All in all a 5 star day."

Jenny Edwards reviewed: Glass Fusing Course for beginners

"I attend a glass fusing one day course just before last Christmas and managed to make 6 candle bridges as presents. Richard gives good clear instructions in a relaxed atmosphere, lots of help and guidance even looking up ideas on the internet for inspiration. I would recommend this course to anyone - even if , like me, you have no artistic ability, you can produce something beautiful that you can be proud of. Would be a great idea as a gift for that hard-to-buy-for person."
