I brought my daughter for her 14th birthday and we both had a really inspiring, enjoyable time. It was nice to find someone who was prepared to have someone of my daughter's age as many places stipulate 16. I've always had a fascination with glass work and my daughter had been keen to try some for a while too. She was particularly keen to work with hot glass so Suzanne's workshop was perfect for her. It's also nice that beads can be easily used afterwards to create a memento of the occasion. It was a nice environment to work in, Suzanne was very friendly and helpful and the biscuits were also very nice 😊

Lampworking is something I've been wanting to try for a while. So when I came across Suzanne offering a beginners workshop, I jumped at the chance!
Suzanne was super friendly with a lot of patience, which was brilliant for someone like me who hadn't worked with glass before. The half day session went by in a flash... but it was so informative. Suzanne briefly explained her process and even the type of glass she used which I found so interesting.
The session was brilliantly put together. I was able to watch Suzanne make a bead, each step explained clearly and then basically have a go myself! As a complete novice I was surprised I was able to create what I did! It was thoroughly enjoyable and if this is something you've even remotely thought about doing - give it a go!
The half day session is brilliant for people with busy lives/work - I can only imagine what fun can be had in a full day.
Thanks so much for having me Suzanne. :)

Suzanne is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the finer details of the craft, in a way that was easily understood. She was extremely patient and guided us through the course with the upmost care, which was illustrated by the fabulous beads we produced. I couldn’t believe just how many we managed to make. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

What a fantastic experience!!
Booked this as a gift for a friend and when we got there we weren’t disappointed!
We had a total hands-on experience and made three fabulous glass beads in 90 minutes, thanks to Suzanne’s brilliant tuition. I would highly recommend this course and am hoping to book another session soon!
Thank you so much Suzanne for a fab morning!

Response from Suzanne Jewellery:Thank you so much Michelle for taking the time to review your workshop. So pleased you enjoyed your morning, look forward to seeing you again soon.
I thoroughly enjoyed my full day lampworking workshop with Suzanne. I had some limited experience of lampworking before and it was great to be able to build upon my previous knowledge and try lots of new techniques.
Suzanne is a brilliant teacher, extremely knowledgable and very calm and patient. She was able to demonstrate whilst allowing me lots of time at the torch also. Suzanne was encouraging and reassuring during the day as well as giving praise and helpful suggestions too.
Suzanne's workshop is lovely, bright and calm, allowing for a relaxed atmosphere. Also, I enjoyed looking at some of Suzanne's fabulous creations that are on display in the workshop.
All in all I have a wonderful day and am very pleased with the beads I created.
Thank you Suzanne!

Response from Suzanne Jewellery:Thank you so much for lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your workshop.
We had a great time on this course. Three of us attended this course, from three generations, ranging in age ( 17 to 70.) We had an amazing morning, Suzanne explained and demonstrated everything so clearly and went at our varying paces. The process is mesmerising and relaxing, we are all hooked. We received our beads 2 working days later and we are very proud of what we have produced. I would recommend it to all.

I have done a little beadmaking before and wanted to extend my range of techniques. Suzanne was really welcoming and knowledgeable, she demonstrated clearly what I wanted to know, answered all my questions and helped me to learn the techniques. A very satisfying day.

I loved every minute of my day with suzanne. Learning different tecniques and producing glass beads with different designs, something I had never experienced before.
I got a very warm welcome on arrival and Suzannes style of teaching is relaxed and encouraging which made me feel extremely comfortable to learn the art of lampworking without any pressure at all.
I’m looking forward to experiencing the next level course 😊

Response from Suzanne Jewellery:Lovely to hear you enjoyed your workshop Shirley, thank you for taking the time to review it.
Had an amazing day and loved every minute of my full day lampwork course. Suzanne was very welcoming and broke each process down, I started with a simple bead and progressed to a heart shape one with lots of other techniques and processes inbetween. Suzanne was an excellent teacher, consistsntly patient and encouraging. I enjoyed watching her demonstrate each process and her enthusiasm for her craft, she ensured I got the most out of my day with constant, well spaced time at the tourch and by the end of the day I had produced a range of beautiful beads which had progressively improved.
Suzannes workshop is a lovely space with a range of rods and frit to use in colours of choice. I was facinated with the work she herself produces which is truly unique.
I can highly recommend this lampworking workshop and intend to return for another. A fabulous experience and a fabulous teacher. Thank you for an amazing day.

I would like to say a big thank you for an amazing day I loved every moment you are a great teacher, I was super excited to see how my beads would turn out! I was so impressed I made a key ring out of them which make me smile everyday! I can’t recommend the course enough it’s a must do I will definitely be coming back x

I had a lovely day with Suzanne. It was a really hands-on course and I was making things all day. I loved that I got to try so many techniques and styles in one day and can't wait to see the finished beads once they have been finished in the kiln.
