Yvonne reviewed: Glass Fusing Workshop, half or whole day

"We did a full day Glass Fusing experience with Penny at Through the Arch, and would recommend to anyone, it was amazing. My daughter booked it as my birthday & mother's day present, a lovely mum & daughter day of fun & creativity. Penny is an excellent tutor, explaining and guiding you through the techniques & skills, as well as safety in glass handling, needed to create your artworks. She is superb at giving you as much help as needed to make several gorgeous pieces of fused glass art, or stepping back and letting you crack on if you are happy with what you are doing. No question is too stupid either. The studio is well organised and equipped, and Penny provides a wonderfully relaxing, even 'cosy' environment in which you can relax and let your inner creative loose! I have some health/mobility issues but nothing was any trouble and I felt that as much help as needed would have been forthcoming had I needed it. Just a fantastic day suitable for almost anyone and the small class size means you can get a lot done and all the individual attention needed. As a day to share for couples, friends, siblings, parent/grown up child, etc, I cannot recommend this course highly enough. To echo a certain famous brand of footwear, "Just Do It!" Thank you Penny, for a fantastic day, we will be back to learn more! "

I have your certificate awaiting you on collection of your glass. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again as you were so lovely to work with. Thank you Penny"

Bethany reviewed: Glass Fusing Workshop, half or whole day

"For my Mother’s birthday she wanted to do some do a craft course of some kind. I spotted this one and thought it would be so much nicer than going to a larger college based class where it can be just the two of us. I was right! Penny was so lovely and welcoming and had all the tea and coffee on the ready. She explained the methods of creating beautiful art pieces clearly and with only two of us it was great undivided attention. Whatever imaginative design we could think of she had what we needed and helped us produce it the best way! Could not recommend taking this course highly enough! As stated on here, if you’d rather do the “full day” which I’d definitely recommend then it was really quick and easy to contact and ask for a full day and it gets added on here at the agreed day for you to book. "

"Thank you Bethany for your thoughtful review. It was a pleasure hosting you and your mum as part of her birthday and mothers day gift and you made it a very enjoyable day for me too. You are both very artistic and really challenged yourselves with your creations. Well done! I have your certificates ready for you on collection of your glass. Thank you again Penny"

Alice reviewed: Glass Fusing Workshop, half or whole day

"My partner, my mum and I had a wonderful half-day session with Penny! We'd never done glass fusing before so weren't sure what to expect but Penny was very helpful and reassuring. We made some fabulous things during the session and Penny kept just the right balance between helping us come up with ideas and supporting our own creativity. Have just brought our creations home and I'm looking forward to putting them up in the house somewhere to admire... :) Would highly recommend giving this a go!"
