Glass Art Workshops – Testimonials

Don’t you love it when you parachute into an art studio and have a taste of some new creative avenue that you had never tried and are given the opportunity to create something in a new media? This was me last Saturday, and what fun I had learning about working with glass as a media. 
A huge thanks to Ellie for her patience with us novices and to my Daughter who took me along to Ellie’s workshop. Here’s the results of my efforts – I made myself a stand and (sorry Zoe) couldn’t resist adding the two seagulls to my seaside scene.

Had a lovely time with Ellie…would thoroughly recommend. Very relaxing, informative, and fun.

Creating my own glass decoration at Glass Garden Art’s Christmas Workshop was such a fun and fulfilling experience. With Ellie’s careful guidance, we explored, experimented and created our own pieces – learning how to cut, foil and fix the glass ourselves.

Ellie’s teaching was excellent and in such a small group there was plenty of 1 to 1 attention as well as a great chance to spend quality time with good friends in a warm, inviting setting. What a fantastic way to spend a morning. What a gorgeous morning thank you

I attended one of Ellie’s half day workshops. During the morning, we learnt how to cut the glass to fit the shape of our chosen template, how to copper foil and how to solder the pieces together. End result – a decoration that I am truly proud of!  I didn’t believe that I would be able to create a piece of glass art as I don’t see myself as a creative person at all.  
 
Ellie is a fantastically skilled artist and this was a real insight into her level of talent and work involved in every piece of art she creates. She is also a patient teacher who carefully explained each stage and guided us and assisted when requested.  
The time flew and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole morning. A whole day class would be a logical next step – a chance to really practice all the skills I was taught and to create another piece of my own glass art.

I went on a Christmas half day copper foil workshop with Ellie and absolutely loved it. Ellie was a great teacher and let me do everything myself (with all the support I needed). It was really cool to use all the kit and would definitely go back and do it again. Ellie made us feel so welcome in her workshop and helped us bring out our creative sid

Spent a fabulous morning at Ellie’s cooper foil glass workshop. I came on my own but felt comfortable the moment Ellie welcomed me in. There’s lots of material to choose from, clear instructions and I was absolutely blown away with the results. I will definitely be going back! 

Kate, 2024

A fabulous morning with Ellie in her home studio making gorgeous glass art. Ellie is warm and friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and helped us create some beautiful pieces. Everything was well explained and we even stopped for tea/coffee and biscuits. A thoroughly enjoyable morning which I highly recommend and I am so happy with the piece of glass art I created. Thank you Ellie.

Zoe, 2024

This was such an enjoyable workshop. Ellie was great, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend this.

Jane McWilliam, January 2024

I had the most brilliantly fun day making my own stained glass piece. I really had no idea what would be involved, and if anything, it was more complex than I imagined. But Ellie is super good at teaching the different techniques. I ended up with an amazing piece that far exceeded my expectation of what I would achieve. I would totally recommend this workshop.

Justin Westcott , September 2023

What a unique way to spend a Saturday morning! Ellie’s patient teaching of each step resulted in a chilled, therapeutic couple of hours cutting, grinding, wrapping and soldering. I was so pleased with my creation and look forward to booking a session with some work colleagues as a mindfulness morning. Thank you Ellie, you’ve reignited my creative streak!

Sofia Hunnisett, October 2023

Fab morning spent learning something totally new and delighted to go home with my own creation. Ellie was super patient and helpful, offering just the right tips and help to mean I got to completion when most crafting activities I’ve tried before have ended up half done disasters! 
The time flew by and was actually really relaxing – I don’t think I thought about anything else for the whole time. Thank you Ellie for sharing your talent. It was a great day and you’re a great teacher. 
Thank you. My star is a true treasure!

I have just finished a half day course with Ellie. Absolutely fantastic tuition, well organised and lovely relaxed setting to work in. Would definitely recommend
