Fused Glass Evenings & Afternoons for Beginners & Experienced

I have been 3 times now and thoroughly enjoyed each session. Both Ali and May were lovely, very supportive and knowledgeable.
I took my nieces aged 5 and 7 and my sister who us not at all crafty. We all produced something we were really proud of.
May helped with cutting difficult shapes and teaching us how to get the best from our work.
Cant wait to visit again!
P.S. as long as you don't ask me to get the water from the well myself i am happy to make my own tea.

I have attended several glass workshops, themed and open sessions, and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The sessions are informal and friendly, help and advice offered when needed but no restrictions which enable you to produce individual pieces of work.
Thoroughly recommend, especially when combined with afternoon tea provided by Bakerlu, part of the Smartsy family

The workshop seats 8. There were 4 in your session. May cleared some materials to give you more room to make your small bird. Gates open 10 min before the start time to keep things fair for customers, as some, like you, arrive too early. You rang my phone & got annoyed because the baker didn’t answer you banging on the door of my home 15 mins before your start time. Would you expect a shop to open early because you arrived early? If you read the details properly, I am a qualified PRIMARY school teacher. May is 33 and has worked with me for 2 years. I get many emails praising her. There are lists on the table for you to choose what to make. Your friend made 2 items so I don’t know how you missed that information. A selection of hot drinks are available and you paid £5 an hour to attend. This does not cover waitress service! If May or I explained how to apply every single material you would just sit for 2 hours. I presume you won’t be returning.

Took my 7 year old to a class yesterday, which had been shortened to an hour and a half (in keeping with the attention span of a younger person). My son loved it. May, the instructor, was so good with him and kept him busy while I was able to concentrate on my own creation. He made 2 items in that time and I can't wait to see them when they've been fired. I've already recommended this workshop to a number of friends.

Really enjoyable at SmArtsy for any of the courses. Ali is very helpful and provides loads of inspiration if you don't have any of your own. But beware, it is highly addictive!

Thanks Karlie, you're very talented, I always like to see what you've made.

I have attended about 5 different classes now, some with my children some with friends. They are always relaxed and great fun. I’ve never felt daft asking for help or asking questions and i’ve always ended up with a piece I love, which given i’m really not very arty is impressive!

Thanks Kate, see you soon!

I’ve been on a two hour workshop and a full day one. I’m booked onto another in a couple of months. Ali warns that glass fusing is addictive and it’s utterly true. She is an excellent and talented artist and also a patient teacher. Perfect combo.
If you’re not sure, book onto a shorter course and try it out. You’ll love it for sure!

I have become addicted! The sessions are relaxing and fun. The items I have made I love and so do those I made gifts for. Ali helpfully guided you along letting your own creativity through and it us amazing value. To handmade something for a friend is a lovely thing to do.

I am 9 years old. I thought it was really cool and I love it that you can design whatever you want there. I would rate the glass workshop 6 stars out of 5! I thought the pieces that I made there were all really great. I think Ali is really supportive and really kind to us. I love the glass workshop!

Highly impressed. Before we started out we went through a health and safety check which was well executed and only took a few minutes. Everything was thoroughly explained but we were making our pieces before we knew it. Group sizes are kept small and Ali is always friendly and helps with any info you want. You are always offered a refreshment half way through which is very nice. The classes are unpressured and you can do as much or little as you like.
