    This workshop is a brilliant introduction in glass fusing. Ruth is a very knowledgeable teacher and goes through some of the techniques and materials you can use to create your own masterpiece and will give you as much help as you need to achieve this. I highly recommend this workshop and I am very pleased with my final peice.

    Fantastic experience

    Great teaching, inspiring and, for a non-creative person out of their comfort zone, it was a really exciting challenge. Super support given to help create a final piece which is totally awesome! Thank you so much! Really want to do it all again! ;O)

    Fabulous fun day

    I have been on two occasions now and will definitely go again. Ruth is very thorough in teaching the skills and approachable when needed. The atmosphere and friendliness between the participants was good on both occasions. On the second occasion I had a better idea of what I was doing so could get on with creating my item earlier. I loved the items I created and really enjoyed seeing what everyone else did. Would really recommend a day with Ruth.

    Brilliant Day, would highly recommend to anyone

    What a brilliant, creative, fun and relaxing day! The workshop was great, encouraged personal creativity and flare. Ruth was awesome teaching us the skills required to cut and decorate using glass products. She was on hand to offer as little or as much support as you needed. She was personable, skilled and made the day fun. It went by in a flash which is always a sign of a great day! Thanks Ruth :)
