Leaded and copper foil (Tiffany) techniques taught and the option to do some Fused Glass jewellery on the Monday morning class.

Classes are run as workshops as they are mixed abilities. This means some students have been coming a while which can prove useful to learners to see what they are doing, also this enables me to spend more time with newcomers.

I would highly recommend this course. Sam, the tutor is very knowedgable and allows students to work at their own pace offering lots of guidance. I have completed 2 courses and at the end of each one have produced a really nice piece of stained glass by cutting glass, copper foiling and soldering. I am now moving on to learn how to make a leaded piece. This is a really relaxed class where you are encouraged to learn at your own pace and is very good value for money.

I have loved coming to this class. The room looking out into the church is so peaceful. I enjoy my fellow classmates and have learned and been inspired by them. Some of their work is amazing.
I have done some foiling pieces and some leaded pieces with Sam's help and instruction. I started out as a complete novice and am continuing to learn.
I thoroughly recommend this class.

This is a great course. Friendly, fun, and the small group size means that Sam has lots of time to spend with students. I am currently making a mosaic picture, but have also done some glass fusing, copper foiled stained glass, and my next project will be a leaded piece for my garden. People sometimes pop into the church for other reasons and are always amazed by the beauty of the work we are creating.

Response from Sam Finning:

Thank you Karen.
I love people’s reactions when they see students work too! It certainly inspires people to have a go.

Sam runs a great course. For someone who would like an introduction into making stained glass pieces , this is the course for you. It gives an insight in to both lead and copper foiled techniques. The course is taught in a friendly informal manner. Definitely value for money and I would highly recommend it.

Response from Sam Finning:

Thank you Steve.
I try and keep prices down to give more people the opportunity to have a go at this amazing craft!

I have been going to Sam's stained glass for a few years now. I have learnt to fuse glass, copper foil, solder, and use lead in my pieces. I really enjoy my time there and enjoy the company. Sam is a great teacher.

Response from Sam Finning:

Thank you so much Anne, the class wouldn’t be the same without you!
