I thoroughly enjoyed my day, which had been given to me as a Christmas present. I managed to make 4 items and my friend was thrilled to receive the star for her Christmas tree. I would recommend this course to anyone.
Really enjoyed this introduction to the craft , Siobhan’s own passion for the glass pulls you right in. Now I want to do more, following on from this taster. My next step would be to produce something functional.
We had a really fun day learning all about fused glass. Siobhan is an entertaining and extremely knowledgeable teacher, brimming with enthusiasm. If you want to try something new then I would recommend this one day course. We were well looked after throughout the day, including a delicious lunch.
My wife and I just did the one day course, she booked us as my Christmas present (at my suggestion) and it has been the best present I can remember. I loved the technical approach while Ann loved the colours and Siobhan's instruction is excellent. The simple coaster exercise to start is an effective way to learn about the behaviour of the material and start practising the skills needed, and the afternoon task turns that into a practical project with an end result that can be kept forever. I went with my own idea of what I wanted to do and Siobhan was completely supportive and helpful even though it was not perhaps what she intended. I am absolutely delighted that I was able to create exactly what I intended with her help, and now just have to mount it to best effect. I could not recommend this course more highly!!
Had a fantastic day with my mum and sisters trying something new and having fun doing it. Siobhan is an excellent teacher, inspiring and lively. Came away feeling full of energy and enthusiasm and with some "masterpieces" to show for it. Would recommend it to anyone.
Had such a lovely time. Easy to follow course. Lunch was superb and as much coffee as you want. I was able to connect with my creative side and produce three lovely pieces of which I am so happy with.
I would recommend this course to all, any age group and any ability, you will have a great day.
Had a really exciting day. Lots to learn but support and encouragement all the way. Excellent teaching with all the equipment and materials provided - all with good humour which made it fun. Food nice too.
I was very pleased with the pieces I made - not technically brilliant but for a first effort I was impressed!!
Looking forward to having another go soon.
Such a fantastic day course! I came to the workshop with no prior experience and Siobhan was an excellent tutor, providing inspiration, advice and guidance. There was plenty of 1:1 help and nothing was too much trouble. Great food too! A really fun day and an interesting introduction to this media. I came away with 3 pieces which I'm really proud of for a first attempt! Thanks!
Had a really great day and very enjoyable. As the class size is small you really do get a lot of attention and help, if you want it. Siobhan is a great host and tutor. Now have some more ideas of what to try and will definitely be booking again.
What an excellent day! Loads of information and plenty of help and advice. Siobhan is great at putting people at their ease and encouraging them, but at the other end of the scale will also push you to achieve more than you think you can. Would happily recommend this course and will return.
I received this course as a gift and it was amazing from start to finish.
A lovely warm welcome from Siobhan and a day of learning with a small group in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
I made 4 pieces that I designed with guidance and Siobhan passed on her great knowledge of what would and wouldn't work.
When I collected my pieces the following week I was so happy at how they turned out and will be booking again nearer Christmas to have another go and do some decorations.
Absolutely loved this course! It was a great day with loads of laughter but lots of learning too!
I have come away from this course with valuable knowledge and some glasswork that I’m super proud of, all this is down to Siobhan who is obviously very talented but a very patient and fun teacher.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who fancies learning something new and having a great day, thanks Siobhan!
I attended this course and was amazed at what I learnt! I was very careful to choose a course where I would have the freedom to create my own pieces from my own ideas and that's exactly what I was able to do. Not only did I learn lots but I also created a beautiful piece of glass art (a sugar skull!) that now sits on my wall at home.
Siobhan is a one of a kind and super talented. The lunch was great and refreshments were continuous. It was a real privilege to be in Siobhan's studio and to be instructed by her. Highly recommend! My kiln is now on order and I cannot wait to create my own little space to create my own glass!
What a brilliant day! Relaxed, informative, good fun and a great teacher in Siobhan, full of enthusiasm and encouragement. I learned such a lot, both in information and practice and came away buzzing with enthusiasm with several pieces made and waiting to be fired. Can’t wait to see what they come out like!
I will be back.
