My husband bought me a voucher for 3 people to attend the glass fusing class so I decided to takey sons who are 15 as they enjoy doing creative things. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, we made some (hopefully!) lovely pieces... collecting soon to see the final pieces and can't wait. Lovely atmosphere even in the circumstances at the moment. Would highly recommend :)
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:You were all very creative! Thanks very much for taking the time to leave feedback - very much appreciated.
My 11yo daughter and I had a lovely day with Sarah and Chris. Relaxed, informative and productive, we can’t wait to see how our items turn out. Lunch was delicious too!
As our day was during Covid times, Sarah and Chris took care to wear appropriate ppe as did we, the workshops were well ventilated and we maintained a social distance throughout.
We’re already looking forward to doing another one! ☀️
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thanks very much Olivia! Great to have such enthusiastic learners - hope Sophie enjoys her new hobby!
Always fancied trying pottery & glass fusion, so was delighted when I spotted Chris & Sarah's courses. So far have only had one half day course, but would like to book more. They both took time & were very patient with me. Would recommend any one to give it a go. Also would make great presents for birthdays or Christmas.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thanks so much Robin! And thanks for suggesting the course as a Christmas or birthday gift - an activity is a memorable gift for someone and they get to make something to be proud of too! Many thanks
A really positive day with Sarah and Chris doing the pottery and glass fusing day last week. It was just myself and my daughter due to Covid restrictions and the whole day was relaxed but productive. Neither of us have ever done wheel pottery or glass fusion but we both felt we learnt so much in just a day under the calm supervision and teaching of Sarah and Chris and made several pieces of pottery and glass that we were really pleased with. Lunch was lovely and we would really recommend this craft day.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Hello Debbie, So kind of you to leave such a positive review of your day - it was lovely to meet you both a help you make some fabulous pieces! Will let you know when they're ready for you. Many thanks, Sarah & Chris
My daughter and I spent a really enjoyable few hours on our half day pottery/glass fusing course. We were both complete beginners but Chris and Sarah took plenty of time to guide us through the techniques needed to make a variety of different pieces in both of the classes. Chris knew that I was a cake maker so suggested that I have a go at making a small pottery cupcake stand, I can't wait to pick it up to see if it survived the kiln or not! We made so many different items in the glass fusing class and are both looking forward to picking them up tomorrow to see what the finished items look like. I would highly recommend both the pottery and glass fusing course to anyone that would like a few hours to relax and get creative. Thank you Sarah and Chris.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:So pleased you both enjoyed the half day course! Looking forward to handing over your finished pieces tomorrow! Thanks very much for leaving a review for us too.
This day was shared with my husband and me, both being complete novices.
Sarah provided a very positive day for me. She clearly explained the techniques and options available for my project and was always on hand supporting (but in an inobtrusive way) so I could try my own creative ideas whenever possible. I was amazed that I was able to make a range of items beyond what I had anticipated, and can't wait to collect the fired items in a few weeks. Would recommend this day course to anyone who wants to bring out their inner artisan. Barbara.
I opted for a complete day of pottery with Chris. Obviously very experienced in running courses, he began with the necessary health and safety briefing. After a short demonstration, it was straight into throwing pots, which was just great. He gave just the right balance of advice and intervention and I completed numerous examples refining the shapes and gaining confidence during the morning. There was a chance to reflect over lunch and a much-needed coffee break. The afternoon was spent finalising each pot and decorating with liquid slip.
I found the whole day both therapeutic and incredibly rewarding.
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished products. Very much recommended. Mike
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thank you so much to you both for leaving such a comprehensive and glowing review! Very much appreciated - we'll be in touch as soon as your pieces are finished. Sarah & Chris
My daughter has recently picked up the beautiful pieces of glass art work she created after a full morning session spent with Sarah. She is especially delighted with her main piece and is hopeful she will be able to include this in her Art GCSE portfolio next year. Sarah explained everything clearly and there were opportunities to practice certain techniques so that my daughter was able to create her piece entirely independently. Thank you Sarah for a lovely morning and a great introduction into the world of glass fusing!
Whilst I didn’t actually produce anything I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the process and looking at all of Sarah’s beautiful creations. I am now also the proud owner of two of her gorgeous jewellery pieces!!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Em should be rightly proud of her main piece! She listened and had practice at the different techniques. A pleasure to teach her and hope she does really well in her exams next year.
My husband booked 2 x 4 hour courses with Sarah on glass fusing as a Christmas present. I found that Sarah had a lot of knowledge and experience working with glass and was happy to share this with me. She helped and encouraged me to experiment with different kinds of glass and advised me on different techniques that can be used.
It was a very interesting course and found that by taking it in two sessions with a few days between was very beneficial. It gave me time to think about my experience between the course days and to see on my return my finished items after firing. From this I could improve my technique and achieve a higher standard and quality of product.
Thank you Sarah for your time and patience it was a very interesting and enjoyable course. I would like to recommend this course to all ages and I can imagine great for a family.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:A fabulous review - thank you very much! It is always interesting to be able to spend more time with learners in order to try out different techniques and give a more in-depth experience. Also lovely to chat to interesting 'students'! Thanks very much, Sarah
I loved the glass fusing workshop I did with Sarah. She explained clearly what to do, showed me lots of possible techniques to use and encouraged me to be creative. I'm delighted with the pieces I made.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:You created some fabulous pieces - so pleased you enjoyed it too! Thanks very much for taking the time to review!
I have truly enjoyed my 1-2-1 class with Sarah. Learning about various techniques of fusing glass and seeing the examples made by Sarah was fantastic. I felt very inspired and will look to book another session soon. Thank you Sarah
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Lovely to hear! Your pieces are cooking in the kiln - looking forward to giving them to you! Thanks very much
My daughter and I had a fabulous evening with Sarah this week and it was lovely to see her be able to offer her classes again.
She carefully explained the measures she is taking to keep her students, and herself safe, which was very reassuring.
The evening was a wonderful escape from the hum-drum of ‘normal’ life and, with Sarah’s patience and knowledge, we both felt we learned a great deal and produced items to be proud of.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:It feels so good to be back taking classes again! Thank you so much for sharing that you felt comfortable with my precautions and that it didn't dampen the enjoyment if the experience at all! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'll let you know when you pieces are ready! Sarah
Wonderful morning spent with Sarah. We were greeted with coffee and then went to her warm workshop where she explained various techniques to us. We then had freedom to create, using either our own designs or copying some of her beautiful pieces which were on show. Lovely relaxed environment - pure pleasure. I was thrilled to complete 5 small pieces.
Thanks so much Sarah.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thanks so much for leaving a review - so pleased you enjoyed the class! Thanks Sarah
I had a fabulous 1:1 session with Sarah. I knew what I wanted to make and Sarah helped me create it. Thank you for your time, patience and generosity sharing your knowlege and supplies. Would highly recommend it.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. Hope you are all keeping well!
Wonderful experience buying jewellery from Sarah. The ring and wine markers I bought are beautiful, unique and great quality! Amazing service and I will definitely be buying more soon!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thank you so much! I'm sure you'll love the jewellery you made in the class too!
I had such a lovely experience making glass designs. Sarah was great at explaining the fascinating techniques and helping make something special. I found it relaxing and therapeutic and I will definitely go again! I’m also buying the experience for friends and family to enjoy too as I know they will love it. Thanks for such a great day!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Being creative uses a different part of our brains and can be a very therapeutic break from our normally busy lives. So pleased you enjoyed it! Thanks Sarah
We had a brilliant time at Sarah's class - the explanations of how to create each item were so clear and it was fascinating learning about the different techniques. So many colours and materials to choose from! A great experience which I would recommend to anyone.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:So pleased you enjoyed the class - a great creative session for the 3 of you! Will let you know when your pieces are finished and jewellery fixings done. Many thanks for the lovely review!
Highly recommended! Gave my daughter a voucher for a glass fusion workshop for 2 for her birthday and luckily for me she asked me to go with her. Neither of us had ever worked with glass before and Sarah was very patient and helpful, allowing us to make 3-4 pieces each which we are delighted with. A lovely experience all round.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:So pleased you both enjoyed the experience - great fun to do together! Many thanks for taking the time to review.
I had a 1-2-1 taster session with Sarah and thoroughly enjoyed it. After an introduction on how the process worked, and the materials that were available it was time to have a go. Having done a few craft classes of various sorts, it was so nice that Sarah was there if you needed her, but was very hands-off and lets you make your own design and material decisions. I kept my designs fairly simple so was able to complete 5 pieces in my two hour session. I picked them up a few days later after they had been in the kiln and was really pleased with the results. Its nice to have things I will use, and several friends have now expressed interest in having a go, having seen my pieces. I would love to do another session, and would definitely recommend it, even if you dont think you're very artistic!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thank you for this great review Wendy - I look forward to a return visit perhaps!
Excellent session in relaxed, friendly and warm environment. Put my friend and I immediately at ease and showed patience and kindness throughout as she guided us expertly through the process. A fun and unique experience!
I attended Sarah’s glass fusion workshop with my mum, sister and daughter and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Sarah was very patient and clear with her instructions. Sarah is very talented and with her help and guidance we all managed to create 4 beautiful pieces each in our morning session. Collection of our finished items was just a couple of days later. I really recommend this workshop. We had such a lovely Saturday morning being creative. Thank you Sarah.
