Class number are kept small for one-to-one tuition

If your booking is just for one, you will be added to a class with up to three other people. If you have a group of two or more people wanting to do the class I will arrange a date to suit you.

This will often mean that the class will be run solely for your group. Bookings can be either a weekday or over a weekend.

Bookings are now being, tentatively, taken for late September 2020 onwards. However, if we are still under social distancing rules the classes may need to be postponed until 2021. If classes have to be postponed, your vouchers will not go “out of date”.

Amazing experience

Siddy was so patient and an amazing teacher. During the Covid situation she made us feel safe and lightened our mood. Even our inexperience became a good laugh, which was made fun as Siddy didn’t try to take over but talked us through and led us back on track. Thank you so much, our results are exceptional. They arrived safe and sound a few days later.

Fantastic first glass experience

We were so excited to come to Siddy’s Studio for our first experience of glass blowing, it was a present from my partner for my birthday after I’d seen the TV series ‘Blown Away’ and I wasn’t sure what to expect! But it was better than anything we ever imagined – Siddy is an incredible teacher with kind patience and a huge passion that shines through. At no point did we ever feel unsafe despite the raging furnace, and she helped us to create beautiful pieces in a way where we were able to fully make them ourselves and feel ownership of the process. Her own beautiful glass pieces are a testament to her incredible skill and she really shares her positive energy into the class making your own glass pieces feel just as special. We would recommend the class to anyone, thanks Siddy!

What a special review – thank you Kate. You were a lovely class to teach and your fishy paperweight was a tour de force!

Amazing experience with pleasing results

Our one day workshop with Siddy was so good we did it twice! And may even do it again one day. Under Siddy’s patient tuition we made the most amazing pieces of blown glass that we are very proud to display around our home. And have even given some as gifts, which have been extremely well received. Thank you for two such fun, interesting and inspirational days.

Thank you Nicola. It is always so lovely to get a review like this. You are welcome back anytime – perhaps you can make a piece with a newt on next time!!

Being a fused glass artist I’ve always wanted to have a go at glass blowing and whilst in Devon decided that my partner and I would go and meet one of our glass heroes and take a class whilst there.
Siddy and her studio are incredibly welcoming and to say I was a kid in a candy shop is understatement of the year.
The class was started with a short safety talk then proceeded to the practice element. What can I say but we loved it, we made a drinking vessel and a paperweight and using some of Siddy waste glass we designed a tile that was ready to go in the kiln. Siddy is a fantastic teacher she talked us through every stage but was hands on if needed. We also got to see her in action making a gorgeous light shade, which just completed a fantastic afternoon.
Would definitely recommend
