Brilliant time!

Thank-you Rachel, I have wanted to try my hand at making something with stained glass for a long time.

Your workshop didn’t disappoint.

I felt thoroughly supported, throughout the day, as I learnt some new skills and very proud at what I had achieved by the end.

I will certainly be booking myself onto another workshop in the near future.

Despite not having the slightest bit of talent in any craft I've ever tried, I actually managed to make something which I was quite proud of! And even more importantly I had a splendid time.

Thanks Rachel, I'll be back.

Just do it !

Thoroughly enjoyed my day doing something totally new to me.

Rachel was there to explain and help with the tricky bits.

She was very patient and happy to explain things again.

We were all able to work at our own speed as some designs took longer than others.

Would definitely recommend the ‘glassy workshop.’

I had a brilliant time loved the company and the laughs we had.

Rachel you are a saint always smiling and very patient.

I can not believe I made that beautiful butterfly its on my window with the sun shinning on it (even my husband was amazed).

I will defiantly be booking again.

Take care and hope to see you soon.

great fun

I had a lovely day on sunday when i made my robin suncatcher.

I am not very artistic so i wasnt sure how this day was going to go.

I was with 3 other lovely ladies and we had a laugh and all managed to produce a lovely piece of 'artwork'.

Mine hangs on my conservatory window in pride of place for everyone to admire.

Thanks to Rachel for her patience and for keeping us fed and watered with biscuits and coffee.

I look forward to attending another workshop at a later date.

Wellbeing Day

Really enjoyed my day making a Sun Catcher with Rachel and 3 other ladies. None of us knew one another but we had a great time.

The company I work for give us some money once a year to spend doing something nice for ourselves which I think is a very nice gesture.

I loved the idea of making something with coloured glass.

It was a very relaxing day, Rachel is a fab teacher & I was so happy with my first attempt at a little bird.

Wanting to get all the kit now though!

A fun day

Had a fantastic day learning a new craft. Rachel is a great teacher and provides the right amount of encouragement so you can give working with glass a go. She’s also there to lend a helping hand when needed. Class sizes are small at 4 people. I went with my husband and a father and son had the other 2 places. It made a nice change to be at a craft class that was not all female. We all left having made something we could be proud of. Thanks Rachel.

I had a fantastic day.........

I had a fantastic day learning about stained glass. Rachel is a great teacher, patient and helpful. I would recommend her workshop without hesitation and I am looking forward to Christmas when I hope there will be an opportunity to make some seasonal decorations.

Great Day

Came for a Glassy Workshop day with my friend - both complete novices. Rachel was so lovely, kind and helpful. I really enjoyed choosing the glass from Rachel's massive range and then cutting it in order to put the pieces together to make my star. Soldering was not my thing but Rachel was there to help and gave me the confidence I needed. All in all an enjoyable creative day

Excellent Day

Myself and 3 other equally nervous ladies spent a very enjoyable day with Rachel in her studio. There was no need to be nervous Rachel soon had has working away on our projects and we all went away with a piece of stained glass. A good teacher and an excellent day
