What our students say:

I can recommend the Glass Fusing workshop with Hazel Wong at the wonderful Goodman Ceramic Studio.  I really appreciated the depth and breadth of the content, the perfectly paced and clear tuition and Hazel's practical and knowledgeable approach which helps the learner understand even the most complex aspects.  She expertly pitched the agenda to our level of experience and learning needs (Kiln management and cold working) and we walked away a good deal the wiser and having practised the techniques till we felt comfortable to go it alone.  It was a focused packed and enjoyable day - just wish it had been more! I'll be back. ' Tracy Houghtucker, UK'
