    Absolutely brilliant! To celebrate our 50th birthday there were three of us who joined another 5 people for this experience. The write up does not do it justice. We learnt every stage of the process and then used the kiln, shaped the glass, heated and coloured the glass, heated and blew the glass, heated then finished the bauble. It was a baptism of fire and I cannot wait to go back and do another one. This isn't some tiny bauble for the tree but a large, impressive bauble that is a real work of art. I was expecting to make a misshapen blob, but instead I have an amazing bauble that I am hanging with pride. The tuition was fantastic, working in the ancient dome itself was awe inspiring and the group was small enough to be friendly and large enough to learn from each other as we watched. You could do this course with friends or by yourself as you wouldn't feel left out because of the way it is organised. Brilliant value for money but more than that, an amazing, unforgettable experience. - December 22, 2018
