A very good introduction to completing a simple glass project. The course introduces the concepts of cutting, foiling, grinding and soldering pieces of glass. The course is well paced and the tutor informative and enthusiastic.
Really great craft to do. You can learn the basics pretty quickly and get great results in very little time!
Went with a group of 8 people. Tejal was a very good teacher, very positive and helpful.
We did struggle with time having too much time the first day and too little time the second. I think that if this was a one day course we would have been able to get the activities done in a time suitable for us. As there were only 2 pieces of equipment on day 2, there was a lot of waiting around. I did nothing for over an hour and then had to rush to finish.
Having said that, we all really enjoyed the craft and all came away with beautiful pieces that are now hanging up in our window!
Thanks you for your feedback. I appreciate limited equipment was one of the concerns and will be speaking to the venue manager to see if they can permit more equipment for a larger group, it was lovely meeting and teaching you all and I was pleasantly surprised with everyone's skills.
I am glad you all completed your pieces beautifully and learnt a new skill! Take care :)
The family running the course couldn’t have been nicer. There were 8 of us and the course didn’t really work for that number. We should have had 2 days of 3 hours but the first day was 2 hrs and the second day 4. There was a lot of time when we weren’t doing anything as there wasn’t enough equipment.
Having said that we all came away happy with our makes and having learnt a new craft.
Thanks you for your feedback, the downtime was to allow members of the group to interact with one another as it was a family event, and additional time was added as a buffer to ensure everyone's ability was accommodated. The venue has a restriction on how much equipment is allowed and I will be speaking to the venue manager about this. I appreciate your constructive feedback with transparent comments and will take this on board for future large group events. We look forward to continuing enhancing the course. Regards, Tejal
Tejal is very knowledgeable and helpful.
The course was just for two people so it was a luxury to have access to the workshop on nearly one2one basis.
I had an amazing experience and created wonderful stained glass sun catcher.
We also had great chats in between the lessons. I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to discover a new hobby.
Thanks Katarzyna, your valuable comments are very much appreciated!
Thoroughly enjoyed the course with Tejal! She is a great teacher- knowledgable, friendly and explained everything very comprehensively. The course is well thought out and organised.
It was a delight to work in her immaculately clean studio in the garden - and I came home with a project to be proud of!
Thanks Aviva, it was a pleasure meeting and teaching you!
This was such a rewarding course. Having never carried out any glass work before Tejal's pace and level of teaching was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed the creative aspect of completing my butterfly over 2 half days and was perfect in giving me confidence to return and complete additional pieces of work for gifts. Tejal's studio is a little haven of tranquillity that facilitates the creative process and I am looking forward to returning to make more beautiful pieces of work in my found new hobby. I have a little list of items I hope to accomplish in 2020.
A truly fantastic workshop. This was my second project with Tejal. Firstly, I made a stained glass table top and this time i made a column lamp. Both pieces are beautiful which as a family we will always treasure. Tejal is a brilliant teacher with inspirational ideas and is patient and kind. Her workshop is an oasis of calm in her garden which is beautifully fitted out with all the necessary equipment and high quality materials. I thoroughly enjoyed my classes and I am looking forward to the next. Thank you very much.
Thank-You and I am so proud of you completing the beautiful column lamp!
As someone who has never been any good at any form of art, I attended Tejal's beginner course this last weekend. It was a birthday present from my wife and kids. What a fantastic experience I had. As I was a beginner, I was treated to a one on one course which is what Tejal does with all beginners. We went through step by step, loads of explaining, demonstrating and positive encouragement from Tejal. When I had finished my project, I was amazed that I could accomplish my finished piece. I can only praise and recommend Tejal's course to anyone who has an interest in stained glass. You will not be sorry. Tejal, thank you so much. I will be back to do the intermediate course in the future. Thanks for all the info and links for tools and equipment that I will need.
Wonderful 2 day course spent in Tejal's brilliant studio - Tejal is an excellent teacher, generous with her time, encouragement and creativity - her studio space is inspiring as is she - already looking for ideas for my next project in her intermediate classes !
I really enjoyed the course. Every step was explained and demonstrated well and I felt able to complete each task following this. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. I would definitely recommend the course and do another myself.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my beginner's course. Tejal is very accommodating and ensured i was comfortable throughout the course. she is very knowledgeable and inspiring. I loved working in her studio and would love to come back again for more advanced course.
A truly wonderful course. Over the course of 4 weeks I completed a beautiful stained glass table top. My champagne table as Tejal called it!
Tejal is so knowledgeable about her craft and put me at ease with any concerns I had.
I really loved my course and will return to do more.
Thank you so much!
This was my first experience of making stained glass but hopefully not my last.
I was a little apprehensive before the weekend as I have mobility issues and use crutches, but I needn't have worried. Tejal's studio is level access and has an accessible toilet. I was able to sit when I needed.
Tejal demonstrated each step and explained everything in great detail, I learnt so much over the 2 days. Her love for her craft is obvious and infectious and makes you want to learn more. There were challenging moments but Tejal was there giving encouragement and support as needed. The end result was a beautiful butterfly .
I hope to do another course at some stage in the future. Thanks Tejal for a wonderful experience
Tejal really knows her stuff, and is very good at explaining the steps in creating a stained glass piece. It's great to learn from a real expert, who also has high standards and wants you to really learn. A lovely person to spend the time with, generou with her time and resources. Thanks Tejal :)
I had never attempted stained glass making before this course and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Tejal went through and explained the process stage by stage in detail. Demonstrating each method.
I feel that I learnt so much over the two days and am definitely going to book to do another project.
I went home with a lovely butterfly that I have displayed in my conservatory.
Tejal was a lovely lady and couldn’t have been more helpful.
Tejal is friendly, charming, inspiring and dedicated to her teaching. I had a great time in her cosy studio making butterflies. She made it fun and easy. Plan to attend another workshop with Tejal soon. Highly recommended!
Great course. I have done the beginners and intermediate stained glass workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. So stimulating and therapeutic. I hope to go on to do the advanced class and work on my own design.
Thanks Jimmy, it was pleasure having you, hope you are enjoying the summer with your stained glass bespoke terrarium!
Wonderful experience. Fun, both challenging and relaxing! Definately want to do another course with Tejal, she is charming, determined to share with you her passion for working with glass, a great teacher, encouraging you gently to find your own ideas. I hope to bring my mother and neice for their birthday presents.
Thanks-you so much, really appreciate your comments and I am glad you enjoyed and accomplished your desired design within time:)
