I spent a fantastic weekend with Gill Rogers learning about traditional stained glass techniques. The weekend was informative, relaxed and fun and I brought home a beautiful stained glass panel that I can proudly say 'I made' (with some help from Gill). I do though feel that I can have a go at home once I have bought some essential equipment; and can't wait to try out my new skills. Thank you Gill for a fabulous introduction and for giving me the confidence to have a go. Also I cannot recommend highly enough the fabulous gallery and cafe at Craft Renaissance for their hospitality and the beautiful works on show from various artists. A fantastic course in a beautiful and relaxing setting - 11/10!
Excellent course - I would recommend to anyone who wants to try something new. Lovely workshop in a great location. Gill is an excellent teacher with a huge amount of experience that she loves to share. I made a lovely stained glass window panel that is now proudly hanging up at home and is admired by many. Thank you Gill - I'll be back for more.
I have had a wonderful time and so proud of everything I made and re-learnt!
Thank you Gill, I will be back for more courses!!!
Thanks so much Gill, I really enjoyed the course a lot.
I have learnt so much about stained glass, it's my new hobby!!
A brilliant 2 day weekend course and achieved far more than I thought I would.
Sign of a good teacher!
Hi Gill, just wanted to thank you so much for last weekend, I really did enjoy it and learnt so much.
I do indeed smile every time I look at the stained glass which is in the kitchen taking pride of place.
I would very much like to come again next year all being well and thanks so much for your enthusiasm.
Take care, Lois
A great weekend and Gill made sure I came home with a great stained glass piece to show off!
Gill's relaxed and friendly approach made sure I had a lot of fun and laughs whilst learning a new skill.
She has an eye for detail and that rubs off, so no corner cutting! I made a beautiful copper foil mirror and I am thrilled with it, also a fabulous lunch!!
Why be bored – forget the television get yourself onto one of Gill Rogers stained glass courses and not only learn a new skill but end up with a completed project to be proud of.
Having just attended one such course in a warm and friendly studio with a skilled glass artist who guides you through the art of stained glass, and provides an excellent lunch, I can recommend the experience.
Singles, pairs or parties give Gill a ring and enjoy learning that new skill you will not regret it.
Regards, Tony Parsons
