Very enjoyable day

Megan was very patient with all our questions, the day went too quickly! Lots of ideas to take home and experiment with. Some new techniques to try, plus refine some old ones. Thank you Megan and Warm Glass.


I really enjoyed my session. Megan was extremely helpful and explained everything in an expert and accessible way. We covered so much, I was very pleased. I would really recommend this personalised day for beginners and those wanting to advance their knowledge. The studio setup and location was great.
