TESTIMONIALS

Sarah Barker-I had such a great time at one of Verity’s glass bird making workshop. Great value, lots of fun and the thrill of getting our birdies back from firing all shiny and beautiful. Highly recommended. Thanks Verity.


Head of Dept- Manchester Academy– Staff really enjoyed learning new techniques in both glass and ceramics and the handouts were also very useful. We now have lots of new processes that we can explore with the students that will particularly benefit GCSE students. The links to artists was also very helpful as this is something we have found difficult to find.

Alison Chapman -What a lovely way to spend a Sunday. Thank you so much Verity
Great fun, extremely tasty homemade cakes , great company and wonderful tuition in an inspiring setting I loved it !! would definitely recommend the course I am looking forward to another one
Thank you

 Rachel Davies-Had a fantastic workshop this weekend. An absolute joy to work with Verity who is so talented. From the lovely warm welcome, the coffee and cake, to making our birds we all really enjoyed the experience. I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Verity.

Helen Taylor-I wanted to thank you for a lovely day. I really enjoyed trying something new in a nice relaxing atmosphere, you’re a brilliant tutor. Also a big thank you for
considering my diet restrictions, lunch was one of the best I’ve had in ages. It was a lovely group to be with. Can’t wait to see the final piece.
I couldn’t of asked for a better 50th Birthday present!

Janet Heath– We had such a great day, you have got it absolutely right, lots of help and guidance but also all the freedom to produce something personal. I didn’t expect to be so proud of what we made!!
On top of all that, lovely, lovely warm people and scrumptious food!
We were pooped last night – all that concentrating on which way round everything goes and being so careful (not usually my style!)



Sarah Davies 5 star Totally fantastic day with the gorgeous and talented Verity – thank you sooo much for your inspiration and patience! Really can’t wait to see the pieces…so exciting! This is something I want to do again and again. Just loved the day, chilled out completely with my friends too, making something unique to be proud of. I could not recommend Verity’s workshop highly enough. Can I give 6*?
