My friend and I had a taster session with Angela ,an inspiring teacher.We had a marvellous time Angela talking us through the techniques and stimulating ideas. We left our creations for firing and we were delighted when they arrived all safe and sound providing useful items to remind us of a delightful afternoon.

I first came here as part of a relaxed hen weekend, and have since come back with my husband! Angela runs workshops using warm-glass techniques.

The teaching is very relaxed and for once this workshop is just about... More
