I have just had the best Easter weekend at Steve Robinson's glass studio. The two day course allows you to experiment with colours and techniques, on day one, and then see your results on day two, in order to complete your masterpiece by the end! The kiln opening is excessively exciting, and beyond believable that everything comes out looking so beautiful. I can't wait to have another go....

Had a great workshop day with Steve on Saturday, very informative and helpful.
Steve is a great tutor and doesn't hold back on teaching his excellent techniques.
I learned a lot on the one day course.
We had a delicious and memorable meal at lunchtime in a nearby restaurant.
Saint Davids is a beautiful place to visit, and I can throughly reccomend the course and Saint Davids.

An excellent course which Steve taught exceptionally well, giving plenty of time to all the students and very generous with materials. We had a lovely lunch at a local pub with free range on the menu not restricted to the cheaper items. My wife and I came away with 2 60x30cm panels, three tea light panels and 8 20x20cm panels between us.

Had a wonderful day with a very skilled craftsman, Steve. Would recommend the course to anyone who wants to produce a unique piece of glass. Also the food was terrific midday.

What a wonderful day spent with Steve on his glass fusion class, very full on but so rewarding, delighted with the pieces I took home. Certainly intend to book another course later in the year. Thank you for your guidance and patience.

Really good day. Lots of valuable tips and practical hands on making. End result wasn't bad either. Thanks to Steve for endless patience.

I booked this course for a friend's Hen Do because another friend had enjoyed the course previously. We had a fabulous time with Steve and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The process was fascinating and we all loved creating our own individual masterpiece

This was my second workshop in St.Davids...once again a great experience, Steve has such enthusiasm for his craft and is always encouraging, even in times of panic and indecision-you couldn't ask for a nicer tutor.

A thoroughly fascinating, enjoyable and rewarding day. Steve introduced us to the materials and how they behave, then demonstrated the basic techniques that a beginner should try to master. Pre lunch we all concentrated on 20cm square pieces of glass to prepare for the main event of the afternoon working with 60cm x 30cm glass. Steve patiently helped all advance quickly and encouraged experimentation.
All five participants produced several very different pieces and all were delighted with the outcome when the kiln was opened on Sunday. I think that all of us intend to take part in another course next year.

If you love Pembrokeshire and love colour then a workshop with Steve Robinson is for you, even if you think you are not creative or artistic, Steve will guide you through to create a beautiful piece of work. The opening of the kiln after firing is always greeted with gasps of wonder. 'Did I make that?'

Steve is so very nice that he was pulled 5 ways to help the customers.
Sadly I lost out in this division of labour - not helped by a lady on my table who dominated time and space. Each and every sentence I had with Steve was interrupted and by mid afternoon I had been reduced to such a small workspace that I left early.
My advice would be to have a clear idea of your end product and make sure you get enough advice to complete it to you own satisfaction.
It may be worth having a male only class to avoid the decibel diplomacy women of a certain age seem to enjoy.
Results can be spectacular, even though you cannot judge the end product until the end. However, I'm disappointed in mine.

Had such a wonderful day with excellent company
Steve was a patient & inspiring instructor who had the ability to bring out the best in us all
A thoroughly enjoyable experience which I would love to repeat someday

I had an amazing day at the glass fusing workshop, with Steve Robinson and four lovely fellow learners. I cannot believe the results, and have definitely got the glass fusing bug!! I can't wait to try it again, but will go next time, armed with some definite ideas!! Even though my final panel doesn't look anything like the vague vision I had initially, I am so so pleased with it. Thanks to Steve for his unending patience and kindness.

Wow! This two day course exceeded my expectations , it was my third course with Steve and it didn't disappoint. We were introduced to new techniques which allowed us to experiment with our creativity and stretch our abilities. The joy of two days gives you the opportunity to do "test" designs as we got to fire Friday's work and see the colours that then informed what we could do on Saturday.
Steve as ever was a great teacher, helping us all to expand our thinking and skills.
I would thoroughly recommend this course I have learnt so much and created so many pieces of unique art work. Thanks to all the team.

The workshop on Saturday was made both enjoyable and instructive by Steve's patience and good humour throughout the day. I was surprised at how much we learned and improved during the day and thrilled at the quality and number of pieces of glass we brought home. Definitely one to be repeated in the future

What a wonderful experience! I am so proud of the work produced. A complete novice in the field of art, especially painting on glass, Steve was a fantastic tutor. He guided, supported and encouraged us all but also allowed us to be creative in our own way.

Steve is a great teacher - gave gentle guidance and support throughout the day. It was a fun day and I love the pieces that I made. I very much hope to do a two day course next year.

This really was a great day!, Steve was welcoming from the start and encouraging without being prescriptive. He is passionate about his craft and his enthusiasm is infectious, his approach was relaxed and made everyone in the group feel valued. The group size was small enough to allow plenty of individual attention and everyone came out with surprisingly good results.

What an amazing workshop - informative, inspirational, fun.
Steve is a great teacher giving help and advice but also the freedom to experiment. I also appreciated the small class size.
