John Webb reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"I was the only person on this course so got Ian's personal attention. Ian gave a good introduction including history of stained glass and was able to give me some information about a sample I brought with me. Use of materials and tools was well explained and demonstration was followed by hands on practice by myself and development of my project piece which I think turned out quite well. I can thoroughly recommend this course and Ian's friendly and supportive style of instruction."

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" Thanks John, glad you enjoyed it, those promised sheets of follow up info are on their way, check your email. Iain"

Shellie reviewed: Copper foiled glass intro at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"Spent a brilliant day learning to copper foil with Iain. He's a talented craftsman that really knows his history of the art. He's very patient and calm in his approach, a natural teacher, making it easy and fun to learn. I was really happy with my first attempt that I brought home with me as part of the course, and I hope to take it up as an ongoing hobby. Really enjoyable, you won't regret it!"

Peter Mason reviewed: Copper foiled glass intro at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"This was a superb introduction to copper foiling, and the small group size (only 3) meant that Iain had plenty of time to give to each of us in our stumbles towards making something to take away. He showed endless patience, professionalism and enthusiasm which contributed to a very memorable day - thank you very much!"

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" Thank you - glad you enjoyed it!"

Kathy reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"A fun and informative course where you get to make your own piece of stained glass to take home. Whilst you have a choice of designs to follow, you can bring through your own creativity and uniqueness with a choice of different glass types and a range of colours to make your design. I didn’t have any knowledge of the processes beforehand but Ian explains everything and shares some interesting history of the origins of stained glass."

Chris reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"Having expressed an interest in ‘having a go’ at at a stained glass workshop this starter course was booked by my daughter & partner as a birthday present for myself and husband. Iain is an excellent course leader. He started with a short introduction on stained glass in general and demonstrated the use of various tools and equipment before we commenced on our individual glass panels. With three persons on the course Iain was on hand to offer advice and assist as and when required. The whole day was so interesting the time whizzed by. We both thoroughly enjoyed the course and were very pleased with the resulting stained glass panels which have been much admired by family and friends. Would highly recommend."

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" thanks Christine, so glad you both enjoyed it."

Ann reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"Treated myself to Ian's stained glass course and I am so pleased that I did. Had never cut glass or had any experience in soldiering before but Ian was always there to help. Was a fun day with good company. I took home my creation of the day.. a sun catcher to show my skills. Learnt the names of the traditional tools and would love to build on this experience. The only problem is the day went so fast. I would 100% recommend this course."

Gaye Easton reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"Enjoyed a fabulous day with my husband at Iain’s workshop, learning through fun and laughter with concentration combined. When you think he’s just drinking his tea, Iain is paying close attention to everyone and everything that’s going on and close to hand for the challenging questions he must have been asked hundreds of time already. Already thinking of designs we could possibly bring to life with another visit......... sorry Iain 😁 Definitely a course to recommend to friends and family as there’s something for everyone to enjoy"

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" Thanks Gaye, hope you and Nick's panels are proudly hanging somewhere, excellent work!"

Jill Davey reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"I had a really excellent day yesterday attending Iain's stained glass course. From start to finish Iain gave myself and another 'student' his undivided attention. We learnt all the stages of making a stained glass panel and were also provided with useful written information to take home. I made a really lovely 20cm square panel which now hangs at my living room window. Hope to maybe take this up as a new hobby in the winter, when the lawn doesn't need cutting all the time! Thank you Iain for such an enjoyable and informative day."

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" Hi Jill, glad you enjoyed it, you should both be really proud of your work!"

Diana reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"My husband and I spent an enjoyable time on Saturday with Iain learning how to cut glass, shape lead and solder. We came away with two lovely panels which look great. Iain is a relaxed teacher who supports you,whilst letting you learn by doing it yourself. This course is great value for money too. I've recommended it already to several friends."

Lynda Morgan reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"I attended this course with a friend in April 2018. It was her retirement present and what a fantastic day we had. The course is really enjoyable and everything is explained and demonstrated brilliantly. The small class size allows time to be spent with each individual as needed. The finished product is lovely and although we over ran, we didn’t feel rushed and our window/sample was finished on the day! A wonderful experience that I would HIGHLY recommended."

Rose Harding reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"I had an excellent day with Iain. It was a gift from my husband for a special birthday. I have always been interested in glass and Iain was very informative so I learnt a lot. Many things that I had not thought about before. I will now look at a pieces of stained glass with new eyes, not only recognising their beauty but also really appreciating the amount of work that goes into them. Iain is a great tutor and very patient. I would highly recommend this course."

Sheila Page reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"I booked this course for me and my husband to have a taster into Stained Glass. Ian was very informative and made the day relaxing and fun. We both learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend it. The course was easy to book, and Ian provided a good amount of detail prior. The course only involves a maximum of 3 people so you have Ian's attention and help to guide you through the day and we were both pleasantly surprised at the item we both made. Well worth the money."
