I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in learning more about stained glass. Paul is a wonderful, patient tutor who explains concepts really well - we had a relaxed 2 days making the panel and enjoyed every bit of it! Additionally, the environment was lovely and the coffee/tea flowed in abundance. Paul and Natalie also were really attentive of dietary requirements (e.g. gluten free) and made sure we were well looked after.
If you are a beginner who is hesitating whether or not to book this course, I would recommend you to go for it! You will not regret it!

I had a great time doing this two day course in learning all the techniques needed to make a stained glass window. Paul was very knowledgeable and great at guiding me through the processes. I found a new hobby that I enjoy because of him :) It was lovely to do this course and also meet his lovely family. This course is well worth it!

Paul said the course should be fun and relaxing and it was. Over the two days I learnt stained glass techniques to produce a lovely piece of art. He provided excellent tuition and advised of the best places to obtain the necessary tools and materials to continue with the craft. I was impressed with Paul's willingness to demonstrate other glass working techniques when asked (especially Tiffany); nothing was too much trouble.
Plenty of tea was supplied and lovely lunches in a friendly family environment.
I look forward to returning again to learn more about stained glass or glass fusion.

Sorry I have not got back to you before now as we have just arrived home at lunch time today and during our road trip through the EU there was very little WiFi available.
Well where do I start, firstly what a fantastic course I had with you. You meticulously went through all aspects regarding stain glass and gave me the opportunity to learn from the master; learning about lead work, soldering, using a glass grinding machine and what the process was to cement and black lead my work. I must say that anyone who is planning to go on a stain glass course would fully enjoy and learn all that's need from Paul. Throughout the two days the tea and coffee flowed and a good lunch was provided. I am now looking forward to booking two more courses, thanks.

A fantastic course, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Paul & Natalie are great tutors and make you feel at ease and encourage you throughout the whole process, even the scary soldering bit! It was lovely to have a relaxed atmosphere and a small group (there were two of us) so there was plenty of help available. Plenty of tea and a lovely lunch and an amazing setting ( we did manage to see a couple of hares too). Thoroughly recommended!

Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hi Jo,
A fabulous two day course hosted by stained glass artists Paul and Natalie.
I attended with my friend and there was just the two of us so we were lucky to have the full attention of tutor Paul who was incredibly patient and encouraging. He is passionate about his work which was evident in the way he taught us.
He and Natalie were very friendly and welcomed us into their home providing endless mugs of tea and a tasty lunch! At the end of the weekend we were both thrilled to have produced a lovely panel of stained glass. We are now both really keen to continue to make stained glass and have already been recommending the course to friends.
