A very comprehensive course, with a very helpful and patient instructor. She gave us open rein, helped us when we needed help and was also very good fun. She is clearly very dedicated to her work and helped us understand all the principles involved.

Really enjoyed the Cast Glass course with Sofia and classmates. Great tutoring by Sofia who goes beyond what I would expect from a tutor. Personally I learnt a new technique for casting glass which I would like to explore more. Already the ideas are milling in my head. Corbans Art Centre was easily accessed with parking onsite which is a bonus as well as train services which is bonus for others. The cafe was great. I would like to see Corbans offer more in classes during week days like Uxbridge in Howick which I would use if it was closer. I belong to the Auckland Embroiderers Guild and come to the beautiful church in the Corbans grounds each month with the Outwest group.

To sum up Sophia is impossible but magnificent would be a start! She was the consummate tutor where no problem was too difficult and she was always looking for solutions to help course participants achieve their goals. Her enthusiasm for her art practice was evident from the get go and she was encouraging throughout the course. Everybody seemed to enjoy the creative and technical challenges of the course and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in a few weeks.
