Gayle reviewed: Fused Glass Panel

"I do enjoy a good craft course and this was an awesome Christmas present. Claire gave us a glass cutting tutorial and explained how to construct a glass picture. We got to create whatever picture we wanted and Claire was on hand to advise and assist. The Larick Centre was a nice venue and there was a café on site too. Can’t wait to see the finished article once it’s fired in the kiln and posted out to me."

Lesley reviewed: Fused Glass Panel

"Great experience. Attended this class with my husband and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Claire was even kind enough to arrange for our creations to be posted to us as we are not local. Our panels were packed with exceptional care and arrived very quickly. We would definitely attend again. Thanks very much!"

Esther Kidd reviewed: Fused Glass One To One Workshop

"I recently attended a fused glass course which was one to one lasting from 9 am to 1pm. Claire explained the process very well and I successfully made a panel. However the panel was completed by 10.30am. I was not offered any further pieces or offered advice on how to display the panel. I also discovered I had to return a few days later to collect my panel. In my opinion the course (which cost £100) was not value for money and I would not recommend anyone to purchase this gift voucher. "

Standing on a Beach responded:

"Hi Esther, Thank you for your review and I’m sorry you felt you didn’t receive value for money. All options on how to create a panel were explained and I am unable to control the time it takes a student to complete their piece. Some students take much longer than the four hours, some take less. It depends on the design chosen and the complexities of the piece that is made. The size of the panel is in the description on CraftCourses prior to booking so all students understand the dimensions available. I do not offer stands as part of the workshop as pieces differ greatly in width and depth, depending on the technique utilised on the day. However, I did advise you could purchase stands for your piece specifically made to the dimensions of the finished panel from websites when you collected the panel. Had you asked about mounting your piece on the day we could have discussed options available. I would also like to draw your attention to the description on CraftCourses which clearly states ‘the fused piece will be fired after the workshop and can be collected at later date’. I also offer postage if collection isn’t an option. Firing, depending on your chosen style’ takes many hours in the kiln and this process is not that of stained glass which can be taken away on the day. Your panel took 36 hours to fire. I’m sorry your experience wasn’t as anticipated and I appreciate your feedback. Kindest regards Claire "

Rhona reviewed: Fused Glass Panel

"Spent a lovely few hours learning to make a fused glass panel with 2 good friends at the Larick centre in Tayport, a great venue with excellent cafe and facilities. Claire was very helpful as we had no previous experience, we all thought it was a great experience and can’t wait to see the results. "
