This is an excellent workshop, with an excellent teacher. As a complete beginner I learnt a lot and I was very happy with the final result. It was a most enjoyable day.

Response from Ruth Mullan Stained Glass Artist:

It was lovely to have you on the course for Carol. You were very keen to learn the stained glass techniques and hopefully you were very pleased with your finished piece. I loved your colour choices you made. Thank you for sending me a photo of your panel in situ.

I had a great day and was lucky enough to have a one to one with Ruth. She is an excellent tutor and very patient (luckily for me)! She welcomed me into her home and is very easy to talk to. I would recommend this course to anyone who fancies giving stained lead glass a go!

Response from Ruth Mullan Stained Glass Artist:

Hi Rachel,
It was lovely to meet you on Saturday and to share my knowledge of the stained glass process.
You should be very proud of your accomplishments! I loved the colour choices you made for your panel, it looks gorgeous!
