I’ve just attended my second glass workshop with Gigha, this being traditional lead work. It was an immense 2 days, quite hard work but well worth the effort. I am thrilled with the garden panel I have produced under her expert tuition.
For those worried about COVID restrictions, Gigha has everything, and more, in place to make this a truly safe environment In which to learn and work. No detail has been left out. Individual workstations, tools and protective PPE is there for everyone to use. She even serves you your own tailor made food at lunchtime instead of the buffet which was on my last course.
If you’ve not booked or rebooked one postponed because of Lockdown, you can do with full confidence because of the hard work she has done to enable her to offer her courses once more.
The leaded glass two days was just brilliant. Highly recommended. I can’t wait to do the next one!
It was such a wonderful way to spend the weekend - I created a colourful, and professional looking panel to hang in my home. I am so pleased with my panel and it has already gained several compliments from friends and family. Gigha is so helpful and patient. She explains each step as you go along until you master the different processes. It was excellent value for money and I would recommend the course.
Thia was my second workshop with Ghia. I leaned so much. If you have been thinking of having a go, just do it! I highly recommend her courses.
We attended a fabulous stained glass terrarium workshop with Gigha in her studio in Bideford. Gigha is a great teacher - professional, informative but most of all friendly and fun. Our confidence grew by the hour and we all came away with wonderful terrariums and big smiles on our faces. Thank you so much Gigha - we'll be back! xx
I enjoyed my time on the Suncatchers workshop, Gigha has the time for everyone no matter what level they are beginer or experianced. everything is provided all you need to do is turn up and enjoy. looking forward to another workshop in the new year.
I have done three courses with Gigha, a 2 day garden panels workshop, a one day bunting & a one day lead panels workshop. I can't get enough! Highly recommended. Gigha's workshops are informative and good fun. You leave with new skills and your creation/s have had a day where everything else in your life is temporarily forgotten while you are engrossed in putting your new skills into action.
My first course with Gigha, and won't be my last. Excellent (and patient) tuition, with a friendly group of people The workshop was well provided with the tools and materials needed. Tasty lunch both days. Many thanks :-)
Excellent weekend with Gigha, learning how to make a stained glass panel. Everything explained, super lunch each day,and would highly recommend taking part in one of her workshops. Thank you.
I attended a two-day course in making stained glass panels. Excellent tuition, very clear and helpful, a well-equipped workshop, good food and a worthwhile panel to take home at the end. Thoroughly recommended.
Had my first mosaics glass day course with Gigha and i have to say i really enjoyed it. Very relaxed environment with clear instructions and lunch and tea/coffee provided. Will deffinetly be coming back for more!
I have been on two of Gigha's courses and both were excellent. Gigha gives you confidence to try everything in a quiet supportive way. Hopefully I will try some of her other courses in the near future.
This was my 1st attempt at stained glass mosaics. It was a brilliant day, Gigha is a a fantastic teacher, very informative with a calm approach. Everything is provided and the lunch was lovely. Friendly and informal atmosphere and an inspiration space to work in. I will definitely be back for another day, or two!
Thanks to Gigha for the help and encouragement on her leaded light window course. There was a lot to fit into the day and luckily we could overrun on time as some of us took longer than others, but you stayed calm and tried to help as much as possible.
We were also very well looked after by your helper who cheerfully provided us with refreshments throughout the day and was very encouraging too!
A very enjoyable day!
I have now been on two of Gigha's courses - one for Tiffany glass making Christmas decorations and the other for stained glass lead panels. Both days were brilliant, I learnt new skills on each day, found it to be a challenge but enjoyable. Gigha's instruction is excellent - she's very experienced with stained glass and has a really nice way of teaching people. The lunch is good too and the location is beautiful. Thanks Gigha, I will hopefully be back!
Great course as a novice. Gigha was very caring and responsive. I would certainly attend again. Well done & thank you!
Gigha explains everything you need to know to create amazing pieces of stained glass art. Everything is provided, all you have to do is soak up what Gigha is teaching you and enjoy the day!
