Very enjoyable course. Learnt lots of different techniques and material supply was not an issue with plenty available. Maybe would have like to concentrate on the core techniques as sometimes seemed to be rushing items to get them finished

I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone, I did check out videos on Verre Églomisé before the class that are no where as helpful as the workshop, the tutor Estitxu is a very talented artist, I have come away with lots of information on what tools & materials I need. During the workshop you get to produce some samples to take home, I’m no artist but once you get how to lay the leaf it starts to come together, Give it a go you will enjoy it.

Estitxu was a great teacher and I learned what I needed to get started on my own projects. Lovely bright studio and delicious lunch!

Fantastic workshop using a technique I'd not even heard of before browsing Obby. We made several pieces of art using different gilding techniques. It's fun, produces beautiful pieces and now I'm hooked. There even a great little cafe on site for a quick lunch. If there's any more courses here I will certainly be back.
