Lovely day

What a lovely day i had creating my first ever piece of stained glass.

Rachel's tuition is gentle and encouraging.

I also really appreciated have a small class of four.

All materials were supplied, plus hot drinks, biscuits and mince pies.

Despite choosing to make a difficult piece (an 8 point star) Rachel supported me throughout the process.

Thank you.

Very talented lady.

Garden glass Panel Workshop

A perfect way to spend a Sunday being creative and having fun with a lovely group of people.

Rachel is one of those one in a million kind of people you feel blessed to cross paths with.

She is a very encouraging and excellent teacher and I cannot wait to hang out at the studio again very soon.

I would highly recommend this workshop.

You work hard to make your masterpiece but it is worth the blood and sweat (no tears!!)

I will be making another panel as I would like to now I kind of know what I am doing focus on my design and workmanship.

So money towards another session has been asked for my birthday already.

See you soon Rachel x Thank you again for having me x

Speechless 😁

Well what can I say that adequately describes the day I had on the 28.9.19.

I came home with fantastic piece of art having designed and constructed it myself from scratch.

Rachel’s patience was unending for us 4 novices and her encouragement and humour kept us going when we got it wrong.

Can not recommend this workshop enough.

Lovely Day

I had a great day at Rachel's glassy workshop, so welcoming and good to be in a class of 4.

We all made such different things which was wonderful to make something you wanted to and still learn from what others made.

The different projects had different timings for the various stages and Rachel supported your stage at the right time and we all finished our creations.

It was a really happy day and Rachel was fun, supported and guided you and also enabled you to get creative.

My beach huts and boat will be hanging in the window and I'm looking forward to going to another workshop again sometime.

Thank you

I attended Rachel’s stained glass workshop today and can honestly say, I had the most amazing day.

I went along with an idea of what I wanted to make.

Even though my idea was unachievable, Rachel reworked it and made it possible for me.

She made the whole day relaxed and fun and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you Rachel for a fabulous day.

I’ve already booked my next one.

A Fun Day

Did this with 3 friends to celebrate our birthdays.

It was a really interesting and fun day.

We all made something that was pretty presentable despite never having done it before.

Rachel was great, very flexible, friendly and helpful.

I would recommend it to anyone.

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.’
