We asked Jo to come to our premises in South Yorkshire for a team building day. There were six of us so Jo told us that she would have to adjust the workshop slightly to allow everyone to have a go at soldering.
We were offered a great selection of pre-cut glass to design our lightcatchers.
During the session Jo was able to explain the history of stained glass and we all found her delightful and informative.
We were all given a go at soldering (harder than you may think)
Later on, Jo asked us if we would like to have a go at cutting glass. Great fun but it really is a skilled task.
My team enjoyed their day immensely and I felt that it bought us all together.
Highly recommended, thank you#Andy

Was bought the Stained Glass Beginners Course as a birthday present from my daughter. Wow! What an excellent day we had. I met with some great like minded people and Jo who runs the course was great. We got to make a couple of light catchers which were excellent. Thank you Jo :)

This was a great course and would highly recommend it if you are interested in Stained Glass. Jo knows her stuff and in a relaxed atmosphere one comes away more knowledgeable. Great fun, thank you.
