Sarah Potter reviewed: Lampworking workshop: full day beginners workshop

"I had a lovely day with Suzanne, she has structured her workshop days very well. After the essential health and safety briefing Suzanne first demonstrated a technique, and then let me have a go. By the end of the day I had made 9 individual beads, and I am delighted with the results. It was very exciting to receive the package of annealed beads just a couple of days after the workshop."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you Sarah for your lovely review, so pleased you enjoyed your day."

Emma reviewed: Lampworking workshop: full day beginners workshop

"I was so excited when I saw this course and it lived up to my expectations. Suzanne is lovely, very chatty and friendly and a patient and excellent tutor. I had an amazing day learning several techniques, each one more difficult than the last. Suzanne explains and demonstrates each technique before letting you create your own version under her encouraging and supportive eye. I would definitely recommend this course."

Gill Kirkwood reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"I attended the workshop with a friend and neither of us had any experience of glass bead making, so were a little apprehensive. However, Suzanne was brilliant, very friendly, professional and taught us so many different techniques that we were amazed just how many beads we created. Suzanne has a multitude of coloured glass rods to choose from so we were able to be as creative as we liked. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, challenging at times but very rewarding and I would recommend to anyone - thank you Suzanne."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you Gill for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I am so pleased you both enjoyed your workshop. Suzanne x"

Sharmila Parks reviewed: Lampworking workshop: 90 minute taster session

"I went with a friend for a taster session and we would both definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to give it a go. Suzanne was an excellent and patient teacher. Neither of us are particularly "crafty" but both of us managed to make 3 lovely beads under her tuition. It was totally absorbing and mindful working with the glass. A truly memorable experience."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you for leaving a lovely review Sharmila. So pleased you both enjoyed your workshop. Suzanne x"

"Suzanne, explained and showed us several techniques from "pulling stringers" to creating a "fish eye" before letting us loose in her workshop. We both thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and were very surprised and really pleased with the results!! Yes, it's safe to say we're totally hooked. Thank you, Suzanne for a fantastic afternoon."

Carol Parker-Bryce reviewed: Lampworking workshop: full day beginners workshop

"This was something I had always wanted to try and oh my goodness I had the most amazing day. It was everything I wanted and more; One to one personal tuition from Suzanne who was patience personified with this absolute beginner. We covered technique after technique with Suzanne giving me the confidence to tackle each one, slowly building up my knowledge in easy, achievable stages throughout the day. Suzanne, explained and demonstrated everything clearly then was close at hand to encourage and support as I tried for myself. The day just flew but I came away feeling I'd learnt so much, with a gorgeous handful of beads to be proud of and craving more. I can't thank Suzanne enough and I'm looking at dates to book a further course with her. I highly recommend this course and Suzanne as a tutor."

Cath reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"I did this with a friend and although we were somewhat nervous about working with a flame and molten glass before hand, we had a really enjoyable morning and gained a lot of confidence. The techniques that Suzanne teaches are fun and achievable, and we can’t wait to get our beads in the post to see how they turned out."

Shelby reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"This was such a great day. me and my mum did the half day workshop and was really surprised in what we achieved. We have never done lampworking before and it was a complete surprise for my mum. After an impressive demonstration we were left to our lamps to have a go. Like all crafts, it needs practice, and we were left to grasp the feel of working with glass at our own pace. It was very refreshing to not have the tutor quickly take over the minute we go off kilter a little. We received our beads 2 days later and was incredibly proud of our achievements. Be warned it was mesmerising and I can totally see anyone getting hooked."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I am so pleased you and your mum enjoyed your Lampworking experience."

Elizabeth Machan reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"We had a lovely morning making beads with Suzanne. She demonstrated lots of techniques clearly, to enable us to make a number of beads. I went with my 15 year old daughter who has some learning difficulties and Suzanne was very patient and encouraging, she didn't want to leave. Making the beads filled her with confidence. The studio was lovely, very well set out with lots of choice of materials to work with. A great course and tutor who I would highly recommend. We will have to come back to practise our skills and make some more!!"

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was so lovely to see your daughters confidence grow as the morning went on. Fab beads made by the both of you."

Katherine Cooper-Young reviewed: Lampworking workshop: full day beginners workshop

"I had the best day with Suzanne. Everything we made was achievable and I had some good early success which boosted my confidence, making the later, harder work less daunting. Suzanne is a great teacher. She gave clear instructions and helpful guidance as I went along, and each time a very clear objective that we were aiming for. I loved the freedom Suzanne gave me to experiment and play as well as the structure she gives to the day which leads to successful outcomes. Suzanne was a pleasure to be with - easy company, encouraging and kind. Her workshop is so well laid out and really inspiring to be in. A few days after the course, I was thrilled to receive not only my own beads, but also the beads Suzanne had made as examples! I cannot wait to be able to go back for another full day. I've been truly bitten by the lampworking bug!! I cannot recommend this course, and tutor enough. If you're considering the course you should DEFINITELY book it now."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Hi Katherine, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your workshop and I look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon. Suzanne x"

Elizabeth reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"Had a fantastic time with a very patient teacher learning the basics of bead making. We learned how to make a basic bead then added various decorations, building skills as we went along. The garden studio is lovely, well equipped and has a kettle (tea is essential for people like me). Suzanne took care to ensure we complied with guidelines relating to covid 19 and I felt safe and supported at all times. I’m already planning another trip because I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Highly recommended."

Chris reviewed: Lampworking workshop: full day beginners workshop

"I have just had my second full day of training with Suzanne and it was fantastic. Suzanne is a super teacher, very patient and very observant. She carefully demonstrated each new technique before giving me ample opportunity to produce my own versions. I learned a lot and thoroughly recommend this course for anyone interested in making flame worked glass objects, beads and jewelery etc. For a full day this course is excellent value. Chris Sowden"

Nicola Hunter-Dale reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"A fabulous course with good clear and patient teaching skills. Suzanne was very warm and welcoming and her work space is lovely. There was a lot of freedom of choice with colours, design and I was made to feel very relaxed. Time disappeared far too quickly- I hadn't realised how much I'd been concentrating. A very mindful afternoon of being totally absorbed making lovely jewellery."

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" So pleased you enjoyed your workshop. Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Suzanne"

Diane Pearson reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"I attended this workshop with my daughter and can honestly say if was fantastic. I have taken lots of craft courses and my daughter is an artist so we thought we would be easy. Lampworking requires a great deal of skill, however Suzanne was very patient and calm offering all the support we needed. Our beads then arrived in the post like little jewels. No faults at all and will definitely try and do this again."

Marion Johnson reviewed: Lampworking workshop: 90 minute taster session

"10/10 Ticked every box. Firstly, any apprehension about using the equipment soon disappeared. Suzanne's studio and equipment are specifically adapted for safety and having 2 to 3 pupils per session ensures individuals receive guidance and reassurance when necessary. Secondly, Suzanne is skilled in her craft and she is a patient and encouraging teacher. She demonstrates and guides you through the various techniques. My beads were not bad for a first attempt. Would I do the course again ? - Yes, cannot wait, practice makes perfect. Thirdly, the location Barnard Castle, a unique market town that has not lost its identity, or community spirit. An ideal location for a spot of lunch and a browse around the interesting local shops. Quality course - well worth it and an enjoyable afternoon spent in the historic town of Barnard Castle."

Cecily Nattress reviewed: Lampworking workshop: half day beginners workshop

"I bought a half day beginners workshop as a gift for myself and a family member, having vowed to buy more locally produced gifts or experiences from now on. Communication before the course was fantastic, very informative so we knew where we were going and what we would be doing. On arrival we were treated to a very warm welcome in Suzanne’s lovely workshop, which was very well appointed with a wide range of beautiful coloured glass rods. Suzanne’s teaching style was great, explaining all the health and safety bits and a bit about what she does, before getting straight into demonstrating what we were going to do. As the session went on, we got more confident with the glass and produced some lovely beads. I found the process very hypnotic, definitely good for practicing a bit of mindfulness starting into the bright flame and watching the glass change shape. I’m sure I will be back for another session! Thanks Suzanne"

Suzanne Jewellery responded:

" Thank you Cecily for your lovely review and taking the time to write it."
