Inspiring, creative, relaxed, fun and a feast for the eyes - and stomach! Sue and Laura's studio is a true gem on the North West's coastline. Along with eight friends, I have spent a most lovely afternoon Christmas crafting lino printing. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Thank you so much for your kind review Kezza, it was great putting a bespoke course on for a big group of friends - extending a taster course to include lunch really makes an occasion out of it.

The cards your group produced were brilliant, make sure you keep one back to frame as an artwork in itself.

We hope to see you again soon,

All best wishes,

Laura

Our party of four, three of us were returners, enjoyed a creative morning at this marvellous art studio. The session was relaxed, creative, fun and Laura and Sue helped us all create a work of art in glass and natural papers and drift wood. We were all novices but we call came away smug and delighted with our creations. We will be returning again and again. If you want to learn a new art craft, have fun with amazing people this is the place. Even the views are inspiring.

Hi Jen, thank you so much for your lovely review. "Smug and Delighted" we couldn't hope for more than that!

We love to have complete beginners try a new creative direction and come away thrilled with the results, we get as much out of it as you all do.

See you again soon,

Laura

Had an amazing time visiting for the 2 day creative laser cutting course. Kris, Laura and Sue were very welcoming, with hot tea and homemade flapjacks and biscuits on arrival. A Lovely location looking out over the sea from their wonderful custom built studio.

Kris, who was running the course was, extremely knowledgeable in both the technical and creative aspects of laser cutting giving a wealth of knowledge and ideas throughout the course. I throughly enjoyed learning about and using the laser cutter to create a variety of different laser cut items, some of which I could never have imagined before taking the course.

A wonderful friendly creative atmosphere and environment with a Lovely homemade lunch looking out over the sea. Followed by a wonderful homemade cake later in the afternoon.

All aspects of the course were carefully thought through, professionally done and organised with attention to detail and thought at all stages. The glass course that Laura was running alongside this, also looked fascinating, with some beautiful glass work being produced.

A wonderful couple of days, full of knowledge, creativity, friendly welcoming environment, good food and a wonderful studio and view. It went by all too quickly and I would love to sign up for another course soon! Thank you to Kris, Laura and Sue for such a lovely experience!

Thank you so much for your very kind (and utterly comprehensive) review Ian.

Kris loved having such an enthusiastic participant, who shares his passion of the creative and the technological. We hope you have gone back to work with an increased understanding of the artistic possibilities of laser cutting and etching as well as some of the more mundane, but necessary, technical and maintenance aspects. Hopefully you will be able to make much better use of your machine now.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Kris can always come and do a spot of tailored in-house training for teaching or technical staff if required later on.

We would, of course, love to welcome you back to the studio for another creative escape weather business or pleasure, hope to see you again soon.

Laura, Kris, and Sue

This was a really wonderful course in a spectacular setting. The studio is gorgeous and the welcome very warm. Sue is a great teacher and can adapt easily to the skill level of participants. I came away marvelling at the attention to detail and the participants' comfort and well-being. So much love has been put into the studio and the classes. It is really inspirational. I am planning to come back with friends. Life affirming.

I was treated to a glass fusing workshop at Shore Cottage for my birthday and what a wonderful time I had. Laura was a brilliant tutor and so encouraging and supportive. The studio is wonderful and the setting and courses offered are inspiring. I love my glass fusion picture and hope to go back before too long. A wonderful place to go to relax and enjoy some creative time.

Thank you for your kind review Pauline, we are so glad that you enjoyed your birthday treat. We love helping folk who have never fused glass before to unlock their creative potential.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon, everyone deserves some relaxing creative time now and again!

All best wishes,
