I thoroughly enjoyed this one day course with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. Gen was very welcoming and a joy to spend the day with sharing her knowledge and passion for all things glass. I felt that I learnt a great deal from Gen who was happy to answer my questions and guided me through each stage to complete a now treasured piece of glass work. I now feel ready to start my new creative path into working with glass in confidence with the skills Gen taught me. Thank you for an inspirational day!

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such lovely feedback. Good luck with your new creative path, and feel free to email me if you have any questions or need any advice.

I can not express how much I enjoyed my time with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. I found the course stimulating it was far better than I expected and I was looking forward to it. Gen is very knowledgeable and has a lovely manor when taking you through all the process stages. I highly recommend this course.
I also should say that the other students on the course, Trevor, Lynn, and Grey were a pleasure to spend time with.
Thank You Ian

A fabulous day making a stained glass panel. The other three participants were good company and very supportive. Gen is an excellent teacher, knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging at all stages and I actually came away feeling proud of my panel but also with a clear understanding of the process. Lunch in the garden was fab!! Thanks for a great day - I feel inspired to do more.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you Lyn for a lovely review and for being part of a really fun day of stained glass. I hope you feel inspired to continue with your creative activities and will come back for more glass learning.

An excellent day. Gen the tutor was knowledgeable and supportive in her teaching. All materials were supplied, lunch was lovely and the rest of the small group (just four of us) were all great. We each came away with a small stained glass window of our own making. A great introduction to the craft.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you Trevor. I had a really great day with you too and I hope you have more creative fun making more panels of your own.
