Student Gallery & Testimonals


What our students are saying about us

“Your enthusiasm for glass work shines through, Alison didn’t baffle us with too many facts about the properties of glass and made it accessible to beginners. Alison instills confidence and a ‘have a go’ attitude. Great value for money, amazing lunch, four pieces of work, lots of materials – Just fab! Great atmosphere, relaxed and friendly. Would recommend to friends.”
Sue M.

“Lots of opportunity to make a wide variety of items which was great.
Was surprised we could do bigger items! Fast paced and focused on the more interesting aspects of glass work. Was useful to have handouts. Fantastic lunch, plenty of choice and special diets catered for.”

“You were so helpful, even for a clumsy beginner like me! This workshop was a really special treat, thank you very much. As you are such a wonderful cook, I wish I could have a cookery lesson as well.”

Very inspiring and the class has encouraged me to do more. Alison Zwaard
is an excellent teacher.
