Fancy having a go at making glass yourself? Book with me for an exhilarating experience! There are two types of hands-on classes, each of which takes either a half day or a day. You can try an intensive day just for two, or a taster class for eight people. Have a look at the photos and quotes below. Go to the Contacts page to get in touch.



          "Thank you for a superb time. It was one of the most interesting, enjoyable and fun days that I have ever had. The pace was just right. I never felt rushed. With Derek's expert coaching I always felt that I understood what I was doing and that I was in control. I never felt that I was being "talked down" to and Derek's enthusiasm only rivals his depth of knowledge and experience. An education, a fun day and I got to make some beautiful things too. What more could you ask? John Luff, Milton Keynes".                                                                                                                 




Thank you for a great day, it was a very interesting experience. We really admired your passion for the craft, and it was great to see an insight into a technique with so much heritage. Your workshop was also very impressive and spacious; it was a nice welcoming environment to learn. I opened the paperweights package yesterday evening. It was very rewarding and exciting to see they had come out so successful! I love the colours and they are sitting proudly on the mantelpiece!
