“Stevie's enthusiasm shines through. She ran a socially distanced workshop for myself and a couple of friends in my garden. We all had an amazing time, we loved it. Stevie went out of her way to make sure everything ran smoothly, and kindly dropped off our finished creations a couple of weeks later.”

“I love Stevie’s workshops. She’s friendly and fun and always interested in the designs students come up with. I’ve done a number of workshops now using lots of different techniques and love the results after they’re fired (it’s like a mini Christmas every time)! Stevie always makes you feel comfortable and goes out of her way to make classes enjoyable and fun. Thanks Stevie!”

Workshop Participant
“After visiting Stevie during an Open Studios day, I booked on one of her workshops with my sister to make fused glass Christmas decorations. We both really enjoyed our time spent creating together in Stevie's studio and I especially love my glass star that I created in my favourite colours, which now hangs in the window all year round. I've since taken part in more workshops and I'm currently waiting in anticipation for my large fused glass bowl.”
