Course Start DatesSaturday 25th January 2020
About the Course
Come and join me for a spot of glass painting. During the workshop you learn how to create your own design and how to transfer it to your glass/acrylic piece. I will teach you various techniques, including tublining. I will show you numerous painting styles/techniques which will help you create your own unique piece.
I will show you how to mix paints and how to create new and interesting paint effects. At the end of the workshop you will leave with a truly unique glass/acrylic piece for yourself or as a gift for that special someone. These could include, glasses, coasters, trinket boxes, tea light holders, mirrors, suncatchers, milk bottles and much more.
Please note this is a half day class running from 11am - 3.30pm. Due to time restraints it is not possible to paint a vase. Vase painting is run over 5 weeks and available through a separate course listing.
Ask for details when booking. I look forward to meeting you and seeing what you create!

All materials are included.
Refreshments including tea, coffee, water and biscuits are provided. If you have a specific dietary requirement please let me know when booking.
Please note that I do have two crazy cockapoos who may be with me for some, if not all of the Workshop. They are extremely friendly and once they have been given the required amount of cuddles, they will settle down and go to sleep.
I really enjoyed this workshop even though the other 3 students cancelled on the morning of the class. So I had extra special attention. Sarah is very friendly and very clever with her glass decorating. Can’t wait to go again. Xxx

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Thank you very much for you review. It was a shame the other cancelled on the day, but I enjoyed giving you the 1-2-1 tuition. You were lovely company. Looking forward to seeing you again in a couple of weeks.
Really enjoyable course ( I felt terrible as I got lost and arrived late), however Sarah, her husband and other ladies on the course made me feel very welcome. Lovely welcoming atmosphere and Sarah had thoughtfully provided some soya milk for me. Although I have not painted on glass before she helped me to learn the basics. Very friendly atmosphere, we all enjoyed a laugh and learned some skills in a pleasant, relaxed fashion. Good communication and teaching skills. very positive approach, which I appreciated. The dogs were very friendly yet unobtrusive. I have become keen on glass painting and plan to try more of it...I SO need more practice ! ...Spent a fun few hours , definitely recommend...Thanks Sarah, Geraldine.

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Thanks so much for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed it. It was really nice to meet you. You did a great job! You don't need THAT much practice! Lol! Hope to see you again! Sarah.
I had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon yesterday with my mum and sister creating our bottle vases. Sarah is a fantastic workshop host. She is warm, welcoming and encouraging with gentle advice to help beginners find their feet. She put us all at ease and the hours flew by. We were all amazed how great our finished items turned out. Sarah, you're a star! Thank you 😁

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was really kind of you. You were all brilliant. I am sure you had done it before! Your vases look amazing. You did a great job. You were all extremely good company too! Even my hubby commented on how much laughing was going on!!! I hope to see you all again soon. X
I had a wonderful relaxing afternoon yesterday painting sun catchers. I had never done anything like this before and found Sarah to be a really helpful and knowledgeable teacher.....and very patient.
I am looking forward to going again to improve on my very basic skills and I would definitely recommend this workshop.
A friendly atmosphere, delicious refreshments. Give it a go, you will love it.
Thank you Sarah, you are amazing.

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Thank you very much for your lovely review. It is really appreciated. You were excellent students! Very well behaved! Lol!
This was a fabulous course! Sarah was so knowledgeable and helpful. Relaxing and informal. What was really nice was the fact it was just a small group. Loads of attention and help for each of us which was great. Thoughtful advice, so gently given, it could merely have been a suggestion. Absolutely fantastic way to spend a few hours and something to take home as a reminder. Totally recommended!!!

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you all in my home. The suncatchers you all created were beautiful. They were all your own idea, I just gave you little hints here and there to build your confidence. You should be really proud of your work.
What a fabulous afternoon spent with Sarah at her glass painting workshop - by far the best workshop I've ever attended. She is so talented and knowledgeable about her craft and her enthusiasm is infectious. Although I am a complete novice, thanks to Sarah's instruction, I managed to create a beautiful suncatcher which now is hanging at our sitting room window.
Sarah is welcoming, encouraging and, above all, an amazing teacher. This afternoon was so relaxed it felt as though we were just friends sitting round a table doing something we love, eating cake (scrummy!!) and drinking tea.
Thank you Sarah for a wonderful experience - 4 hours have never passed so quickly! I'm now going to do some internet shopping for glass painting supplies - I'm hooked! xxx

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Ah thank you. That is such a lovely review. It was really lovely meeting you today. You were an excellent student! Lol! You created a really gorgeous piece and you should be really proud of your work. I am really pleased you enjoyed the day and that I have inspired you to create more things. You are more than welcome to come again whenever you like. Maybe next time though, I will make the cake!!!! Lol! Don't forget to show me what you create at home! See you soon, Sarah.
A thoroughly enjoyable day with Sarah. She makes you feel very welcome and puts you at ease straight away. The company of the group was a real hoot - I had a great time and can’t wait to start experimenting! I would recommend this course for anyone interested at any level .... give it a try!

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Ah thank you. It was a real pleasure to have you on my course. You inspired me to pull my finger out and start working on my sketchbook again. I am really pleased you enjoyed yourself. You are more than welcome to join me again anytime. X
This has been a return visit for me - Sarah has exceptional skills and passes these on in a fun and informal way. The products we worked on were great quality and something you will have for years and the paints used were such lovely colours and quality. I will enjoy my Sun Catcher for years to come. Tea & cake with great hospitality, will be coming back to learn more - big thanks Sarah x

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Hi Lucy,
I spent a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon trying this with Sarah. She's very kind, very patient and has a lot of knowledge which she is willing to pass on. It's very satisfying and you walk away with a great feeling of achievement and a great piece that you have made too.
Give it a go, you won't regret it.

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Hi Fiona,
Genuinely one of the best workshops I’ve attended…. Sarah Lewis is so friendly and down to earth but is also an excellent instructor & she is more than happy to pass on her passion for glass painting along with lots of advice, hints and tips to help you progress and improve!
The take home starter kits are a must so you can continue to explore your new found craft passion in the comfort of your own home!
I am so glad I attended a workshop and really cannot recommend Sarah enough! A few hours well spent, learning a new skill, chatting and drinking tea with good conversation too!
I WILL be returning again very soon!!!!!
Thank you Sarah xXx

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Hi Louise,
Sarah is an amazing patient teacher, I had never done any glass painting before, so she took the time to explain the techniques to me. She helped me paint a wine glass and design and paint some coasters, which look amazing. You can also buy a starter kit from her at a very reasonable price, I can’t wait to try and do something on my own now! Thanks Sarah!

Response from Sarah Lewis Designs:Hi Lisa,
I really loved this course! The teacher was super friendly and patient.
I currently have my valentines bouquet in the beautiful vase I made that looks stunning on the windowsill with the light coming through!
I have a dairy intolerance and she was kind enough to get milk in that I could drink so I could have tea.
The home kit is fab I have now painted a few things.
Would definitely recommend!
