Sam Evans reviewed: Stained Glass Taster Day @ Bowood House & Gardens

"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."

Tim Brooks reviewed: Stained glass introduction at Blue Kite Stained Glass

"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. "

Blue Kite Stained Glass responded:

" Well done Tim, great work, hope you keep it up."

"Have just taken part in this course at Bluekite Stained Glass, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time learning about stained glass. I was thrilled with my piece and found the process so satisfying.

I recommend this course, have a go! I think I might be hooked!"

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"

"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!"

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!"
