We are absolutely delighted with our stained glass work.
As complete novices to the art we could not be more grateful to Anna for her welcoming, engaging and inspirational teaching approach.
From the beginning of the day to the end she nurtured us, enabling us to develop the skills necessary to achieve success. We each felt enabled to explore ideas and to be creative with colour choices in the safe environment provided.
We highly recommend this course and its hostess and look forward, in future, to undertaking the Level 2 course offered.
Many thanks Anna, we couldn't have asked for more!
Having recently done the level 2 course with Anna I can't say I was disappointed. Reaffirming and pushing forward skills learnt from the level 1 course, my friend Matt and I felt well looked after making pieces of more our own design and of greater complexity.
Anna is a very good tutor and great company.
Would once again heartily recommend her stained glass courses, returning for the level 2 like we did was well worth doing.
Received this one-day stained glass course as a Christmas present. Have been looking forward to the day since then - did the course at the weekend and the day exceeded all expectations. Anna is very welcoming, friendly, patient and really helped me to get the best out of the day. I came away having learned the techniques needed, and put those processes into practice to create my lightcatcher. Thrilled with it. Thank you Anna - I had a super day. All best wishes. Andrew
I booked this course of two days as I wanted to know more about Stained Glass and was an absolute beginner. Anna is a great teacher, patient and knowledgeable and her cottage is comfortable, warm and welcoming. I learnt a lot on both the days, stage one entailed cutting glass in straight lines, stage two cutting more curves. Both days were full and involved the techniques of copper foiling and tinning and bead soldering the joints and edges of the pieces we made. It was great to be able to take a glass hanging and a beautiful coloured glass butterfly home, both original and hand made. Thank you Anna, I will certainly be back as soon as I can.
I couldn’t recommend this course much more. We booked the day hoping to come away knowing the basics of stained glass making and maybe with something in hand at the end.
Not only did we come away with a finished stained glass project but Anna was a fantastic teacher, making sure that we knew what we were doing and that we understood the process as much as possible.
She dedicated a lot of time to helping each of us over the day and was very friendly and welcoming, though we were working hard on our glass through the day she made every effort to make the workplace comfortable.
The projects we made weren’t overly complicated but were manageable within the one day’s course and were more than enough difficulty for a beginner, teaching the fundamentals of glass cutting and copper foiling. The finished pieces were still definitely something for us to be proud of.
Both of us are keen to go back and do another course with her soon!
I wanted to learn a new skill. Anna is extremely good at explaining all the stages of making a piece of stained glass, using the copper foil method, and there are many stages before ending up with a finished piece of work. Anna was very good at teaching how to do each stage and how to work safely, which is how I spent the whole day cutting glass and avoided making any cuts to my hands and fingers. The course is very intense but lots of help and guidance available from the teacher and lots of questions answered.
I was a little disappointed not to be taught the traditional way of making stained glass using lead came, but this is an introductory class at the basic level and all things relevant how to make a finished piece of work. The advantage of using lead came would be that your finished piece of work would be far more robust as using only copper foil and solder is far more delicate and flimsy. The course was informative and learnt a lot about glass cutting, the different types of glass, how to cut it, break it and smooth rough edges. It is a skill, but well taught by Anna and was easy to follow her instructions.
My mother and I were bought this one day course for a Christmas present. We had such a great day, Anna was a wonderful teacher, and the space was inspiring and inviting. We will definitely be booking day 2 when the courses start again.
Absolutely fantastic experience making my first stained glass suncatcher. Anna is a wonderful tutor and her craft room/home is exceptional, showing her skills in numerous crafts. I would highly recommend The Craft Cottage not only for Anna's patience and obvious love of crafts and excellent teaching. Plenty of tea and coffee in a beutiful inspiring setting. I will definatly be returing. X
Oh my goodness! What a truly wonderfully inspiring creative day spent with Anna creating a beautiful piece of stained glass art work. I am thrilled to have discovered such a talented creative teacher who really knows how to inspire & encourage others in such a relaxed & informal yet educational way. You're def gifted Anna. And your fab craft cottage in my opinion is as inspiring -sorry cant stop using that word! as Anna is. I am def booking onto next session ASAP. Thoroughly recommend this one day stained glass art course. Thankyou so much Anna. Sue 🤗
Had an excellent day at Anna's on her beginners Stained Glass course. Anna was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable making the whole experience great. We will be booking another course soon, thanks for a really lovely day Anna (and for the lovely cake and cups of tea).
This was the second day of a stained glass course with Anna. I had been looking forward to it and wasn’t disappointed. Once again Anna had selected several project templates and had loads of amazing glass to choose from. Anna’s workshop is very well equipped and she explains everything very clearly - she is always on hand to advise and help when needed. The day was great - lots of fun, I learnt a lot and came away with a lovely finished project. Can’t recommend Anna courses highly enough, brilliance days and great value for money.
Such a fantastic course! Bought as a christmas gift for my sister-in-law. We both had a fun day and went away with two finished pieces and a craving to make more. We're definitely coming back for day 2 of stain glass as well as the mosaic :-)
Day 2 of Stained Glass, after enjoying day 1 so much, we had’t to come on day 2! Another thoroughly enjoyable day, Anna is a wonderful teacher, so patient and helpful. Very pleased with the finished stained glass sunset.
Cannot speak more highly of Anna and her courses.
A beautiful day, with an amazing lady. Anna certainly knows her crafts and her teaching skills were impecable, attending to every ones needs. Anna even used her umbrellas to walk us to our cars. Very good value for money . Can't speak highly enough.
My Aunty, Cousin and I enjoyed a lovely day with Anna, she was very accommodating to the tricky (and ambitious) stained glass designs that we brought with us. Anna helped us all along the way, we all produced beautiful stained glass window pieces. I would highly recommend a day in the beautiful Craft Cottage.
What a splendid way to spend our wedding anniversary. Anna was very welcoming from the moment we arrived and wasn't rushed throughout the whole day. With both me and my wife's first time doing a stained glass course it was very relaxing. All we are waiting for now is the sun to come out to see how our light catcher work. Highly recommended course.
Who knew stained glass making could be so much fun?!
My good friend and I came away quite exhilarated and feeling pampered after such a welcoming experience and set in a bright warm room oozing with creations which were beautiful and inspiring.
Regardless of personal ability, spending a day learning a new skill with Anna takes you temporarily away from day to day stuff and into a world of coloured glass and a feeling that all is good.
We worked hard but there was a fair amount of laughter and lots of positivity as we saw our creations literally take shape.
Each stage was explained clearly and Anna was on hand all the time if need be but only if we wanted it, she adjusts to whoever is learning as we all have different ways, some wanting to create independently and others enjoying more support.
Anna is the most positive teacher you could wish to have and before we had even finished the course on Saturday we had booked up to attend a mosaic course!
I’m grateful to Anita too for discovering this ‘hidden’ gem as it was such a therapeutic day and we left with our beautiful sun catchers, very happy and a tiny bit proud of ourselves.
I have just completed Day One of the Stained Class Course run by Anna. It was an excellent course, excellently run and my friend and I had so much fun learning and creating. The suncatcher that I created will be a reminder of a thoroughly enjoyable and productive day which was made more so by Anna's knowledge, support and friendliness.
It is not the first course that I have attended with Anna and will most certainly not be the last. Thank you Anna, you were excellent!
Stained Glass Course 1
I had never attempted stained glass work before and I suppose I was a little apprehensive.
That soon went after meeting Anna, she was so friendly and enthusiastic. Her cottage and garden were filled with beautiful things which gave off a very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of tea at hand !
The course was fascinating, Anna guided both of us through it with clear instructions and at the right time. The finished stained glass panel was beautiful and even more so when the sun shone through it.
I would sincerely recommend this lady and her courses to anyone wanting to try something different . I am sure that the participant would receive the same attention, care and feeling of achievement at the end.
Thank you Anna.
Had a brilliant date, had never attempted stained glass before but Anna gave very clear instructions and lots of hints and tips on how to achieve the best results.
There were a number of different projects to choose from and lots of very beautiful glass available. I am really pleased with my finished project and would highly recommend Anna's course. I'm looking forward to booking for the next class.
We had a lovely day with Anna, she is a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable and patient (with us both being newbies to stanined glass!) the day went far too quickly and we were sad to finish the day but were pleased with our respective efforts! Her workshop is beautiful with lots of her work on show, very inspiring! It made me want o sign up for all the courses going!
I would highly recommend Anna’s courses.
