The workshop was fab- Thank you so much! Even for people like me, who don’t consider themselves very creative, you bought out the hidden artist within! I had a really lovely day. Would definitely recommend your workshop to friends.

Great for novices- feel totally supported yet independent. Surprised that we could make so many things. The teaching was very helpful, clear and at a good pace. Superb value for money, the number of pieces made and variety of glass, Incredible. Lunch was top notch, lovely atmosphere.


As a total novice you taught me at the correct pace, giving me enough information for me to produce a piece of jewellery. I had a fabulous day, good laughs, good company and great food, all in a relaxing environment. Thank you.


The workshop surpassed expectations. Loved every minute of it. Alison was very knowledgeable and patient! She gave me loads of ideas and confidence. Hospitality and lunch were amazing, so was the music.

Lots of opportunity to make a wide variety of items, which was great. Was surprised we could do bigger items! Fast paced and focused on the most interesting aspects of glass work. Fantastic lunch, plenty of choice and special diets catered for.
