My glass fish

On Sunday February 17th I spent 6 enjoyable hours creating and making my own glass fish. I was very apprehensive at fist as never having done anything like it before. Needn’t have worried. Rachel soon put me at ease and had me designing and cutting the pieces to create my fish. She is an excellent teacher and in no time I was soldering the pieces together. There were 4 of us on the course and it was a very relaxed day. Thank you Rachel excellent time spent. If you haven’t tried it before do have go.

Being a total non crafter and known for being fairly clumsy was slightly concerned before arriving.....from beginning to end workshop was fun easy to understand and blow me down I had a stained glass piece of art at the end ——— would most highly recommend this to anyone —- Rachel was such a good teacher and I will be back 😊

I am inspired 🙂

I attended Rachel's workshop on Saturday 26 January. My daughter treated me to a 'creativity day' for a Christmas present. I regard myself as utterly non artistic but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Rachel was lovely and very helpful. I would definitely like to attend a second workshop. I was very pleased with my final creation and I can do it anyone can do it. I am inspired 🙂

Fantastic Christmas present

I attend Rachel’s stained glass workshop on 2nd December. Rachel was so welcoming and friendly. Although it was a Christmas workshop Rachel was very happy to accommodate my idea of doing some beach huts. She guided me through the process. With her knowledge she could see what I needed to do, when I had no idea.

Highly recommend.

Great Christmas treat

An absolutely brilliant day. Excellent concise and friendly tuition with Rachel Russell. A very warm welcome and a small group of students. Very pleased with my first stained glass result. Lots of inspiration for work with an abundance of materials to choose, with plenty of encouragement. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended

I recently attended a course with my sister and I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable activities I have done. I attempted an ambitious plan and Rachel was highly supportive giving direction and advice on making the plan reality. The conversation was amusing and Rachel was an exceptionally welcoming host. Please take a course with Rachel!

Christmas Workshop

I came to the workshop with some trepidation as I am not very crafty but loved it! It was brilliant to be in a small group and Rachel was so helpful and positive. The workshop was a birthday present voucher and I've dropped heavy hints about my Christmas list. Totally recommend. Thank you.

My second workshop

I attended one of Rachel's workshops in the summer and made a little yacht suncatcher. I had so much fun that I booked one of her Christmas decoration sessions in November. The day just flew by. Rachel is an excellent and patient teacher and gently encourages each individual through the process whilst allowing them to develop their own ideas. The classes are very small and friendly. This time I made a selection of Christmas items which will take pride of place hanging in my windows and on my tree. Thanks Rachel. I will probably be back!
