We are situated in the stable block of the prestigious Strelley Hall alongside the acclaimed Mulberry Tree Cafe So if you are looking for a piece of art, a unique gift, or if you simply want to give yourself an individual treat, why not visit us, have a look at what is on offer and chat with Dave and the team to see if they might be able to help you take up a new hobby.

Glass fusing with David the great!
May 2021 • Friends
Me and my auntie attended the fusing glass class hosted by David, David was so knowledgeable and very accomodating. We made a coaster, sun chaser and jewelry! Worth the money 100% and thoroughly enjoyed! Would do it again! David was ace friendly, full of information and just generally amazing! Looking at new classes now!

Glass Fusing day course
May 2021
My niece and I attended the glass fusing class and as absolute beginners but, loving all things crafty we were excited to see what we could make. David Humphreys the “glass guru” was an excellent tutor and host. We were made very welcome and felt very safe as the classroom was COVID safe and yet it didn’t impinge on the relaxed class atmosphere. David gave the right balance of background info technical info.
He friendly approach was great and we made a coaster (mine was very much a one off lol) a light sun catcher and a brooch. Just so much creative fun. Defo want a follow in course to try more designs... evening classes please David!

Hi Kath Thanks for the positive feedback. Our Glass Fusing workshops are always popular and people who attend are usually really pleased with what comes out of the kiln (just like I say .... it all comes out in the fuse!). Looking forward to welcoming you onto another of our classes soon. Dave

A totally inspiring day that left me buzzing
Sep 2019
7 friends met up to take part in a Glass Fusion day, run by Dave. We were totally looked after and created some great pieces. Dave is very encouraging and makes the day so much fun. I'm not naturally an arty person but that really didn't matter as I never felt judged. Would highly recommend and I shall certainly be going again.
Lunch in the cafe is good too.

Thanks for the kind words Claire The group was a joy to teach and I'm really pleased everyone had a great time. We do try to make all our workshops an enjoyable experience where you can have a bit of fun as well as learning and making. Everyone's pieces were great and I'm always amazed at the variety of ideas that come out of a group that have all been given the same instructions. We look forward to welcoming you onto another class soon Dave

Lovely setting for craft workshop
Jul 2019 • Friends
A friend and I attended a half day craft workshop here. The setting is lovely, a great place to grab lunch at a nearby cafe and go for a countryside walk. Also within quite easy reach of Nottingham. The workshop was well run with an engaging tutor who was knowledgeable and helpful and had plenty of resources to stimulate our creative sides.

Brilliant one-day creative workshops
Jun 2019 • Couples
Have now done two one-day courses here and found them equally fun and absorbing. For somebody who's never been particularly artistic, it's been fantastic to learn skills that have enabled me to come away with pieces I am proud of, because of expert, friendly tuition.

Hi Jean Many thanks for the kind comments. We work hard to make sure that all our classes are accessible to all abilities and try to make them fun and well as informative. Having seen your work first hand I do think you are being a little hard on yourself re the 'artistic' comment. Thanks again Dave

Lovely Environment for Creative Courses
May 2019 • Friends
My friend and I visited Created By Hand for the first time today for a Kiln-Fired Enamelling day course.

I haven’t been to Strelley Hall before - the court yard was attractively presented with ample accessible parking.

We were a bit early, but David entertained us discussing other craft courses and glass fusion whilst we browsed around the shop and the inspirational works for sale there.

The course itself was relaxed, informative, friendly, productive. Our tutor, Katie Sanderson, was very clear and organised in her presentation - and supportive of our individual needs and wants.

All in all, it has been a lovely day escaping from reality 😁
