Guest reviews from the recent workshops - 💫


"What a perfect way to spend an afternoon! I attended the art by the glass session yesterday. Sat 12th May and cannot recommend it enough. The class in set in a wonderful location overlooking the river, and held by the lovely Philly, who instantly makes you feel at ease, even if you have no previous painting experience. She demonstrates various painting techniques and is readily on hand to assist you if needed. She creates such a positive and relaxed atmosphere and everyone there painted a great piece of artwork to take away with them. So highly recommended!" - Nicky King
