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

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 🙂
