My friend and I had a whole day glass fusing with Sarah, which was great. We made so many lovely things, which we will be able to collect in a few days. The lunch, which was also provided in the day’s course, was lovely and mostly home-grown. Sarah and her husband, Chris, who teaches pottery, are a very talented couple and good fun to meet. All in all it was a fabulous, creative day- thank you.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:It was great to meet you both and help you make some masterpieces in glass! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! Sarah
I always love spending time being creative, in a relaxed and fun environment and Sarah's glass workshops tick all the right boxes. Even the most novice can create beautiful bespoke designs with Sarah always on hand to guide and advise - so you'll never be disappointed with your results. Thanks for a great time.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Lovely to help you both make gorgeous glassy pieces - thanks very much!
A fabulous 2 hours of creating our own glass pieces. Sarah has great patience and provides all the knowledge you need to make some lovely pieces. Materials were limitless and even when we thought we were finished she encouraged us to make one more piece. My 3 teenage boys were engaged the whole time and learnt some new skills in cutting and using glass. Sarah was happy to work with their ideas and suggest ways to get the best outcome from the glass, introducing foil, bubbles and textures to their creations. The items were posted to us promptly so we arrived home from our holiday to find them in the postbox. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone, it puts a smile on my face every time I look at our creations!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:So pleased you all like your pieces - a lovely post-holiday perk! Thank you so much for such a lovely review, Sarah
What a fantastic day with Sarah and Chris learning a mix of glass fusion and pottery. Superb teaching and patience to enable me to create a few pieces in each discipline. Thanks both you are credits to your own professions.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:It was great to help you create some fabulous pieces and have a relaxing day! Many thanks
Attended the course recently in Apr after a long wait due to the lockdown. Thank you to both Sarah and Chris for making our day so relaxed, special and wonderful- it was an experience that both I and my daughter loved. You were great patient teachers and the buffet lunch a lovely, unexpected surprise.
Thank you again
Anu and Nupur
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! Great to meet you both!
I bought the fused glass earrings in the yellow amber and am really happy with them and with the service. They’re very pretty, well made and the colour is just what I wanted. Sarah replied to my questions immediately and sent the earrings that day. Excellent service. Thank you!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:I do always aim for a quick turnaround so that's lovely to hear! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. Thanks, Sarah
A super day all round. Chris and Sarah are very skilled in their own art and are so patient and encouraging throughout. I felt very safe as the day was Covid complaint at all times and I enjoyed the bonus of lunch and a chat mid day . Chris and Sarah are so warm and share so much of their knowledge to make the day informative and add to my understanding of two crafts. I’ll be back!! Thank you xxx
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Lovely to meet you! Your glass is all successfully out of the kiln and pots will follow! Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review. Merry Christmas, Sarah and Chris
I went with my daughter in early October.. It was my second time with Sarah.
Sarah is great - explains things really clearly, is encouraging and patient, and helps you to make your ideas work.
We both made coasters that we were delighted with, as well as a ring, and hanging decorations.
Arrangements for our safety were good and we felt very comfortable wearing visors.
Looking forward to next time.
Thank you, Sarah!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Hello Kay - It was great to see you again for a 2nd session and so pleased you both loved your finished pieces! Thank you for mentioning the safety - we obviously take it very seriously but also hope that it doesn't impact on the enjoyment. Many thanks, Sarah
My husband and I attended this course in October. A fantastic way to try some new crafts, lose ourselves in creativity and effectively escape for the day. Both the glass fusing and pottery tuition was excellent. We both made some pieces we feel really proud of and they have just arrived safely at our home having been posted after being fired etc... Must not forget to mention delicious lunch and wonderful hospitality from this creative pair.
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Great to spend the day with you both! So pleased you love your finished pieces. Stay safe, Sarah & Chris
We went to a glass workshop at the end of October.
Sarah offered us visors to wear instead of our masks, which was a great idea given the duration of the workshop. We felt safe throughout, with the set up allowing social distancing.
Sarah was incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging, kind and helpful throughout the session, and I’d highly recommend the workshop for absolute beginners as well as those who do have some knowledge of glass fusing.
We made 7 pieces in total between the two of us, and the overall experience is something we won’t forget - in a good way!
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Thanks very much Matt - you made some great pieces and so pleased you enjoyed yourselves! Many thanks
Amazing 2 hours. We really enjoyed this course. Sarah is a patient teacher. I would definitely attend again and have some more fun - I have my eye on a sun catcher :)
Response from Sarah Greening Glass:Lovely to meet you both - so pleased you enjoyed yourselves! thanks very much for leaving feedback
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!
