I've been running courses since 2017, and making stained glass for over 15 years. I studied Glass & Fine Arts; and Glass & Architecture at Post-graduate level at Central St. Martins School of Art & Design in London 2004-2006.

Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass
"What a lovely craft day! Iain obviously loves his subject because it showed in his enthusiasm. Nice bit of history with some beautiful pictures for inspiration.. Small group of us so Iain had time to show us how to make & help us all, as needed to complete a stained glass window of our own design. Sarah and Bowood House were brilliant hosts, lunch was lovely and there was plenty of it, with tea & coffee on constant supply. And a tour around the main house with a guide after lunch. Good choice of venue. Thank you all very much. My stained glass piece is now proudly sat in one of my windows at home for all to see. I will be making more :)"
"Had the most wonderful day making a stain glass panel, my daughter and I had so much fun and learned a new skill and managed to make something beautiful we can hang in a window. Ian was a great teacher and the day flew by, shame it ended so quick."
"I had a fun and very informative day with Iain Gutteridge on his stained glass course. Iain explained every step carefully and ensured I was able to do all the necessary steps to make a small leaded glass picture with multiple colours . He is personably understanding and happy to share his wide knowledge of his subject, not just in stained glass but in other aspects of glass work as well. A very useful, worthwhile and enjoyable course. "
