I have enjoyed every minute of Brian’s fantastic course, making a stained-glass panel which has far exceeded my expectations. If I could give more than 5* I would. He is a first -class teacher, guiding his students through all steps of the process, from original design through glass cutting, leading up, soldering and polishing, in a calm, unhurried way with good humour, tea and biscuits thrown in. He always goes the extra mile to assist you in making sure that your initial ideas are brought to fruition. His studio (in a small chapel building) is in a quiet location – a sanctuary of peace and creativity where you are surrounded by some of Brian’s amazing creations to inspire you. I am already planning for the next course and can’t wait to get started. If you have even only a slight interest, I would urge you to take the plunge and do this course. You will not regret it.
I come from an art background and wanted to try something different. Brian is great at understanding your ideas and turning them into reality. His enthusiasm for his craft encourages you to push your ideas further. Brian has opened my eyes to new techniques that can be applied to my own paintings. I look forward to more opportunities to experiment further in creative glass techniques in widening my creativity inspired by what I’ve learnt on this course.
Brian has a great sense of humour which he needed to have with me. He was very patient, encouraging and helpful. He is very knowledgeable about all stained glass techniques and adapts his teaching to all skill levels even complete beginners! I managed to produce three pieces of stained glass all of which are on display in my house and I am very pleased with. I would highly recommend this course to all interested in stained glass. Seeing Brian’s work is truly inspiring.
Brian is such a patient, inspirational teacher, with a wealth of experience and expertise. He has a gentle, fun way of imparting his knowledge and I have really enjoyed learning all the different skills involved in making a stained glass panel. I am looking forward to doing a further course some time over this year and would definitely recommend this course for beginners like me. I've had a great time!
This is a fantastic course where you will learn all of the fundamental techniques for creating your own Stained Glass panel. Brian is an excellent tutor with many years of experience and he will help you get the very best out of the design and the piece that you create. I really enjoyed the course and am already looking forward to booking again so that I can create another piece. The course is run in a fantastic studio surrounded by Brian’s works of art. Really good.
A fabulous course. I bought a weekend course for my mum as a birthday/christmas present and had to go with her of course! Brian is an excellent teacher and without really knowing it he helped us convert our ideas into a great bespoke piece over the course of the weekend. We had a great time enjoying the creative process, loved the lead work enjoying our first real attempt at soldering which was lots of fun! Be bold, be creative whatever the end result is it will be unique and you’ll be proud of your achievements.
Brian has a wealth of knowledge and experience in stained glass techniques. I spent 2 days learning from him and have come away buzzing with new ideas. His new studio space is great - very spacious and really well equipped. Thanks Brian...I really enjoyed learning from you.
I attended a two day course to make a stained glass window for my hall. Brian was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. I am so pleased with my results I am looking forward to going back to do more with him. I thoroughly recommend this studio.
This was my first time with stained glass... and I made a panel that even I was impressed with! Brian was patient and clear with his tutoring... and I felt there were endless possibilities to what I could do.. a lovely couple of days in his new studio and I came away with a treasure... thank you Brian... thoroughly recommend the course.
I attended this course with Brian over summer and it was fab!
My stained glass and leading knowledge is limited so I wanted to refresh my skills and this course ticked all the boxes.
Brian explained each process clearly and I thoroughly enjoyed making my panel.
I would recommend this course.
