Response from Glass By Design:

Thank so much. Hope your family was impressed with your panel!

A wonderful experience: totally exhausting - it's years since I had to concentrate so hard for a whole day! Brilliant (and patient) teacher in Angelina. The best bit was coming home with something I would be pleased to put on display.

- - #27483

Response from Glass By Design:

Thank so much for your review. Stained glass is quite an intense day, but worth it when you see what you can achieve in just a few hours. Your panel was beautiful and I hope it will give you much joy to know you made this. Show it off with pride!

Couldn't be happier with what I made and took home from this workshop, it's an absolutely beautiful piece. And I was taught with class, skill and patience and even given a nice lunch!

Response from Glass By Design:

So glad you enjoyed yourself. You were a lovely group to teach, so thank you for your review. Hope we will see you again.

Superb day. Well thought out with enough learning and excellent experience. Not rushed and well supported throughout. I recommend highly.
Thank you to you both.

A wonderful day, brilliant course, would highly recommend.

- - #24694

I’ve had such a wonderful day today with you both and have thoroughly enjoyed myself! You were so welcoming and accommodating. You shared your wealth of knowledge and expertise and were able to help me gain (or begin to gain should I say...) the skills and techniques of stained glass and glass fusing. I will definitely be booking onto more of your courses in the near future! Thanks again for a brilliant day!

Response from Glass By Design:

The taster day you were on with 2 techniques in 1 day is a really great way to introduce you stained & fused glass. We look forward to you coming back!

What a fabulous day I had on Saturday doing this course. Angelina was first class with her tuition and guidance at each step.
I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it and the day flew by. And the bonus is you come away with a lovely piece of stain glass to keep.

- - #24131

Response from Glass By Design:

Very pleased you enjoyed the day and got so much out of it. Hope we see you again.

What a fantastic day! Angelina made everything interesting, fun – and safe. Each process was thoroughly explained and demonstrated. I learnt so much and the bonus was a colourful glass panel, that I had created with her guidance, to take away and display at home. It has already been much admired! I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Angelina.

Response from Glass By Design:

So glad you had such a good time with us. Hope we see you again.


I really enjoyed the glass cutting course. We learnt lots of good techniques and I feel confident to try them out at home. The time went so quickly. I will look out for the Stained Glass course, as I want to try that as well. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to work with glass. The work on display was an inspiration and very beautiful.

Response from Glass By Design:

So glad you had a good time and now have confidence with your cutting. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Highly enjoyable couple of hours learning glass cutting techniques with great advise and enthusiasm. Would definitely recommend this course. Made welcome and encouraged to have a go. Lovely inspiring surroundings and great recommendation for lunch across the road.

Response from Glass By Design:

Very glad you enjoyed your time with us. Now you are cutting so well, just keep practising!

Stained glass course, with Angelina.
We were made to feel very welcome, a relaxed atmosphere. Detailed instructions on cutting glass safely and then on to the practical, rather daunting but with the help of Angelina it wasn’t a problem.
Lunch was included which we had a the Fox Deli across the road, excellent.
At the end of day one we had a stained glass work of art, day two an hour to clean and polish.
A great course now I feel happy to have a go at home, Glass by Design also supply the glass and lead for you to create and complete your own stain glass designs.

It was a really enjoyable day. The instructor was extremely patient and helpful throughout sharing ideas and providing advice. Lunch was included which was lovely and by the end of the day we took home our own panels. I’m now looking at doing the fused glass day too

- - #22610

I started as a complete novice and took home an A4 stained glass panel that has pride of place in my kitchen window.
Angelina was really patient and helpful throughout the whole day.
Everything we needed was supplied, including lunch.
A great course that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Thank you Glass by Design.

Response from Glass By Design:

Thanks so much. You made a lovely panel and very glad it is in pride of place. Hope to see you again soon.

I have attended an all day taster with two friends when we made stained glass Christmas decorations and fused glass window hanger. I really enjoyed it, Angelina and Cathy are so knowledgeable and helpful, a very relaxed day and all pleased with what we made. I have since taken my daughter to a fused glass course and again we both loved it. I'll be back to do something else soon.

Response from Glass By Design:

Thanks so much and very glad you all enjoyed yourselves. Hope we see you again soon.

I did a day long taster course with Glass by Design, making a stained glass panel and 2 fused coasters, and loved every minute of it! The instructors were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and the pace of the course was just right to complete both projects without being rushed. I'll definitely come back for more courses in the future!

- - #21900

Response from Glass By Design:

Thank you, the taster day is great to show the difference between the two techniques, and to take home two very different glass projects. Hope to see you again soon.

I have done the sea scape full day course and a full day taster with Glass by Design. Angelina and Cathy are very professional and knowledgeable which makes them brilliant teachers. Angelina was very helpful when I had to be difficult and make a more complicated design with my sea scape. I would highly recommend their courses as you will come away fully understanding the process and have a new skill. You will also get a lovely completed item to show off when you have visitors.

- - #21878

Response from Glass By Design:

Thanks so much. Hope we see you all again soon.

My friends and I decided to have a go at making a stained glass seascape panel at Glass by Design. None of us had any experience and were a little apprehensive about learning new skills. Angelina was a brilliant teacher, patient, understanding and with such expertise. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and finished with a beautiful panel of stained glass which we now proudly display in our homes. We would thoroughly recommend the courses at Glass by Design.

- - #21876

Response from Glass By Design:

Thanks so much. Your panels were beautiful and I am so glad you had such a great time.

An absolutely brilliant day, learnt so much and achieved a piece of work far beyond my expectations. Thoroughly enjoyable, excellent easy teaching style, can't praise the event enough. Well worth every penny as treat for yourself or a present.

- - #21867

Response from Glass By Design:

Many thanks. So pleased you had such a good day with us.

This one day course is a great introduction to working with stained glass. It was hard work but very rewarding and lots of fun.
I was amazed at how lovely all the finished pieces were at the end of the day.

- - #21845

Response from Glass By Design:

Many thanks - Yes, it is a pretty intensive day as the process can be a challenge. You all did really well and produced beautiful work.

I was given the course as a Christmas Present. After some discussion with Angelina I upgraded my course so I could make a design of my choosing - the extra cost was well worth it. The day and a half 1-2-1 tuition I had was absolutely brilliant. Angelina is expert, patient and a fantastic teacher. I was completely absorbed the whole time I was there. Nothing else in my life even entered the room, which is rare. And now I have a gorgeous bespoke piece of stained glass, beautifully framed and on display in my home. And now I also have the tools and glass to make some some more...

- - #21830

Response from Glass By Design:

Many thanks. Your panel was great, and I am so glad that you got so much out of the 1 to 1 session.

I was given a one day stained glass workshop voucher as a birthday present. It was a wonderful day learning a new skill with lunch thrown in as a bonus. I felt a great sense of achievement taking my finished piece home at the end of the day! Thoroughly recommend!

- - #21800

Response from Glass By Design:

Thanks so much - A Birthday gift you will never forget!

Had a fabulous day on the one day stained glass workshop for beginners with Angelina. She has so much patience and really made the day very enjoyable. I was amazed that I achieved so much in one day. The lunch at Foxy's Deli was also great. I will certainly do another course there soon.

- - #21795

Response from Glass By Design:

Many thanks. It is always lovely to see how proud everyone is when they finish the day.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Angelina made the day fun, but also made sure that we all went home with a piece of work to be proud of. I'd highly recommend trying ones of the courses. I'm looking forward to trying another course in the near future.
