I'm an experienced artist, working across the fields of painting, print and fused glass, with works exhibited in London and New York. I love working with glass in particular, as it gives a tactile feeling that's often missing in this increasingly digital world.

I can't wait to share my skills and experience with you, helping you to create beautiful fused glass art of your own!

Booked this class as someone with no artistic experience or ideas. The teacher is very helpful, easy going, calm, kind, and encouraging. She didn't mind repeating things to me, clarifying instructions, and answering questions. It's high quality art glass including metallic bits, with all sorts of things you can incorporate to create something as fun, or classy as you desire. The teacher even went out of her way to fire them quickly, and wrap them up well so I could take them back in my suitcase.

I think the class should cost half the price. Studio is very cold, the colour selection was not great, and the teacher guidance quite vague. Felt more like a colouring class since we don’t get to do any glass work apart from just placing pre cut pieces next to each other. Slightly disappointed

Teacher's response

Hi, We're sorry to hear that your recent visit wasn't up to your expectations. We take all feedback seriously, and we appreciate your honest feedback.

Best, Nadine

This workshop is fabulous. I even didn’t know when the time passed. The location has a beautiful view on the back. All the materials provided were amazing.

Nadine was so sweet, charming and supportive with our individual creative directions. Very much appreciated this class, would absolutely recommend.

Teacher's response

Thanks so much for your kind works and taking the time to leave a review.

Ally Drake Jan 2024


Very friendly helpful teacher who was happy to give advice, ideas and suggestions if you wanted them but equally happy to let you do your own thing. Everyone made four different things each to take home and there were lots of different colours, materials and tools to choose from. Hot drinks and biscuits provided throughout the class. I thought it was good value and really enjoyed it. Thank you Nadine!

Teacher's response

HI Ally, Thanks you so much for writing such a detailed review, so glad to know you enjoyed it and found it good value.

Amazing class and so kind ,expert and fantastic teacher that I like it so much

Rebecca Penn Jan 2024


Nadine was a fab teacher, really friendly and helpful, and provided plenty of tea & biscuits! The session felt really relaxed and we both enjoyed cutting the glass up (with safety goggles on) and just trying out different and bits & pieces. It felt like there was no wrong direction to go in and Nadine was great at guiding our ideas

Nadine posted our glass pieces to us, they were all safely wrapped, and they all look fantastic. We decided to have half our pieces shapped into bowls & half as coasters and we're thrilled with the outcome. We can't wait to find places for them in our home

What I liked:
1. the teacher, she is an artist and was kind and available to us with tips and encouragement.
What I did not like:
1. the description of the event says “ Not only will you learn valuable skills and techniques, but you will also be able to take home your own handcrafted Christmas glass ornaments.” In reality you will either have to go back to the studio to collect the items in a couple of weeks or will be charged £8 extra to have them delivered in the UK.
2. Personally I did not learn much, you won’t see anything regarding the actual process of making glass, how it melts etc. you will just decorate and wait to see the result
3. The studio itself, including the bathroom and the kitchenette were not nice
4. We were working with glass but no safety training was covered. I paid attention while working but still cut myself a few times
5. I found the price way too expensive for the experience itself.

Teacher's response

Hi Severina,

Thank you for sharing your feedback, I am glad the tips and encouragement during the workshop were helpful to you, but I am very sorry that the workshop did not live up to your expectations. I have edited the description of pick up/postal process for the Christmas Glass listing, and apologise that this was not clear on booking. I will cover the cost of your postage, as this was my error.

A great little workshop that catered for all levels of ability.
It's been decades since I have undertaken any sort of artwork but this class caught my attention and was thoroughly enjoyable. Nadine was welcoming, informative and helpful throughout.
Lovely to try something different.

Teacher's response

Hi Lyn, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, really glad you enjoyed the workshop.

The class was so much fun! Nadine is an excellent teacher, full of advice and recommendations, and guided everyone in the class on colour and material combinations to make our designs come to life. The materials provided were all beautiful. As I was a little slower than the rest, Nadine allowed me to stay a little after the class ended to finish my last piece. And the room was well heated - as I had cycled there in the rain, Nadine was happy for me to put my wet clothes on the radiator to dry! Thanks for being so accommodating.

Tatiana Zapolskaya Nov 2023


It’s been a great experience, Nadine was very professional and supportive, the atmosphere was inspirational and relaxed, working with multicolored glass was a pleasure! Looking forward to see the results :)

Rosie Shayler Nov 2023


I had such a great day with Nadine making my bowls, there was a fabulous range of colours and materials and everything was explained very well. The length of the class was perfect too

Dirk Nov 2023


Really interesting class! Super welcoming instructor, loads of materials to choose from and plenty of support throughout. Was able to make four very different pieces and I can’t wait to see what they look like after the kiln!

Niki Hamilton Nov 2023


Excellent teacher and class! Thoroughly enjoyed it. The class was well supplied, ideas shared, and lots of support given.

Beverley Hulme Nov 2023


What a lovely class. An excellent teacher who was very attentive throughout the class with lots of helpful tips and ideas. Nice venue for a small group (6 today) with refreshments as well. A lovely skill to learn which was easy for beginners and very achievable. Looking forward to receiving my finished pieces once fired.

Robbie Giannelli Oct 2023


Our glass fusing workshop with Nadine was the perfect birthday gift. Nadine was so welcoming and really put us at ease even though we are not arty people. She encouraged our creativity to a point where we were creating without thinking. As a teacher she was fantastic, but moreover she allowed us to be free and create without judgement. I would reccomend making glass with Nadine for anyone who, like me, remembers the joy of drawing as a child but hasn't had the pleasure of doing so as an adult.

Teacher's response

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. It was a pleasure hosting you both last weekend and hope the rest of the birthday celebrations went well. The tiles have just had their first firing and look great, I hope you find the perfect place to display them at home.

All the best,
Nadine

We went for a private glass making bowl experience and we had the best time! Nadine was amazing and taught us in a really lovely manner and made us feel super comfortable, showed us all the different techniques and helped us with our vision. Would 100% recommend!

Teacher's response

Lovely morning spent getting creative and learning new skills. Great teacher and lovely space to learn how to create our glass pieces.

This class was excellent - Nadine started off with some history on the glass fusion technique, also sharing her own introduction to the art form.

She gave very clear guidance about how we should approach creating our pieces, which was helpful to a beginner such as myself. There was a wide array of materials from which to choose. I found it much easier to get a hang of glass fusion than other ceramic forms that I have tried. We were all able to make 4-5 pieces, which I felt was a good amount for a one-day workshop. I would consider taking this again in the future!

Great fused glass class at E3 studios with Nadine. Easy to follow instructions, lots of guidance on best ways to accomplish ideas and very relaxed atmosphere. Would love to do/learn more.
Plenty of parking at venue but v. expensive - £19 for 4 hours!

Great class, really interesting experience and the time went very quickly!
Was a small class of 6 people so plenty of time to get tips and support from the teacher. Would recommend!

Chandini Kumari-Webster Jun 2023


Thank you, very relaxing and enjoyable morning. Great teaching and loved the process of making the glass.

Lia Johnson Jun 2023


Really fun class. Easy to follow and the teacher was helpful. Small size so you really feel like you're getting good amount of attention. It involved cutting glass, which I wasn't aware of but the tool they had make it easy to cut. Recommended.

Robin Ramsurrun May 2023


This was a great class to try something new and creative. Nadine gave a quick but thorough introduction and we quickly got stuck in with making our pieces. She continued to provide guidance through the class and had examples from other classes and suggestions for how to make something work. A very accessible and enjoyable experience.

Jo Williams May 2023


Myself and 2 friends had a really great time at this workshop. The teacher was very informative and welcoming. Great selection of materials to create our 4 final pieces.

A couple of weeks ago me and my husband tried a Fused Glass class for the first time. Nadine was lovely, she explained everything about materials and techniques , patiently answering all our questions. Glass and all equipments provided were in abundance. The atmosphere in class was welcoming and relaxing. We had a wonderful time in the studio and 3 hours flew by very quickly!
We are very satisfied with our creations ( saucers and coasters)
Thank you , Nadine , for unforgettable time at Fused Glass class.

The teacher Nadine was wonderful. Warm, helpful, informative and supportive. The place was comfortable. We were offered tea and coffee with cookies. All the material and equipments were provided. The variety of glass was impressive and plenty.
My daughter and I made several small bowls. We can’t wait to see the result after they are Nadine puts them in the 900 degree kiln.
Overall, we had a wonderful time. It was a great experience.

Nick Smith Apr 2022


All very enjoyable and easy to understand. All materials provided. A good activity for friends

Michael Goldhill Apr 2022


Nadine is an absolute delight . We were a trio of elderly brothers celebrating the 70th birthday of one. Another had not done any 'art' since leaving school. We were all engrossed in the technique of fused glass and Nadine helped us all to achieve our aims, whether they were practical (a new number for the front door) or simply artistic.
A thourghly enjoyable morning

Jenny Leuba Mar 2022


The tutor was absolutely lovely and incredibly helpful! The glass making itself was so much fun and excellent if you looking for a group activity with a close friend on partner. I cannot wait to receive my made glass!

Glass and Mosaic class review by Jenny Leuba - London

Angela King Feb 2022


Excellent teaching, although a lot to take in during one session - which of course, is encouraging to go back again to put it all into practice.
Equipped really well, with lots of good examples to follow, and help when needed - which was quite often for a beginner (well certainly in my case), and fortunately Nadine is a very patient teacher.

Becky Black Oct 2021


Excellent class - Nadine was really lovely and helpful.

Perfect for beginners but also would be keen to come back to try something a little more advanced next time.

Thanks so much!
