Fantastic day with Jamal, a great teacher. Cant recommend the leading course enough, oh and he makes amazing tea!!


We had a wonderful time with Jamal making our own stained glass window. We would both highly recommend his course. Thank you again.


Fantastic day. Made a stained glass yacht picture. Excellent teacher, friendly and helpful. I can strongly recommend this course.5


Excellent 60th birthday present. Wonderful day, learnt a lot in a day. Jamal is very patient and has great deal of historical and practical knowledge which he was happy to share. He is clearly enthusiastic about his art and has kindled the need for me to find out more. I will try hard to get on the four day course.


Have just spent four days with Jamal - what an amazing and creative experience. He is the most passionate artist with a depth of knowledge that is rarely found. He freely shares his skills with each student and is committed to the creative goals and decisions of his tutees. Jamal is a highly skilled and dedicated artist that anyone interested in art should spend time with. Many thanks for helping me produce a superb piece that will be cherished for a lifetime.
