Just returned from this fantastic course. Had a brilliant day, thoroughly enjoyed making a small stained glass piece. Caryl was very helpful and patient with the class. Would recommend this day course for anyone interested in creative glass design. Many thanks Caryl !

I would like to thank Caryl for a brilliant day we produced three Christmas themed pieces each to take home with us, she is a lovely patient teacher which was great for me. We enjoyed hot drinks and a hearty lunch which was delicious. It was also great to meet four other like minded ladies who also attended the workshops they made my husband and myself very welcome into the group and all were very entertaining.. The workshop gave us confidence to try more Stained Glass projects, would recommend it to anyone that likes to try new things.

Arrived at Caryl's workshop with no experience of stained glass, and came away with a wonderful piece of glass art.
Thanks to Caryl's patience and knowledge of what she is doing, she gave me the confidence to achieve things which i couldn't imagine.
All in all a great day, with plenty of one on one time, which was what i needed.
Also the lunch was a real bonus, and my partner enjoyed the cake too.
Many thanks to Caryl

Caryl is a patient, kind and generous teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with her and produced a slightly wobbly but lovely stained glass light catcher. Will be looking to visit her again to learn more and improve my technique very soon.

Had a great day with Caryl and 3 other stained glass novices. Only 4 of us meant that Caryl could spend lots of time helping us through the processes. We had quite a bit of practise time on plain glass before moving onto the real thing. I've never done anything like that before, but I really enjoyed it and felt supported right through to the end. Lunch was good (veggie and meat) and lots of teas/coffees throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend it and would like to do another one.

I had such a lovely time doing Caryl's stained glass course. She structured the day so well and there were only 4 of us so she was able to give us all plenty of attention. We all came away with a beautiful piece of leaded stained glass (around a mirror in a frame in our case) which was entirely achievable in the time we had. We were able to do our own designs, choosing the colours and types of glass we used and there were plenty of her own creations to see if we needed inspiration.
We were very well fed at lunch time (veggie and meaty) and throughout the day we were offered frequent teas and coffee with a snack in the morning.
Altogether it exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend it.

What a brilliant day! This was such an enjoyable course, and covered everything you need to know to get started working with stained glass. Caryl is a great tutor, very helpful, very patient, with lots of great suggestions and solutions. We all ended up with amazing pieces of stained glass artwork that we managed to create in a day. Will definitely be booking another course with Caryl.

Can't recommend this course enough if you are interested in trying glass. Caryl is very patient and shows you how to cut and grind the glass safely before you start. She has lots of great designs to choose from and an amazing selection of glass for you to work with. My light catcher has pride of place in my window. Already booked myself on the lead panel class to further my knowledge. The lunch provided was lovely too.

Had a fantastic day on this course. Caryl is a very good patient teacher. We came away with a fantastic stained glass piece. Her studios are amazing, will go back again. It was well worth the travel from Oldham to attend. Would recommend Caryl to anyone looking to try their hand, at stained glass.

I spent a very rewarding time at Caryl's light catcher workshop on a grey February day. It was immensely rewarding and delightful to take home a piece of art, predominantly made by me!
Caryl is a patient teacher and as she kept the attendance at the workshop small, she can provide quality support. A tasty lunch was an added bonus.

I have just spent a wonderful day with my partner on Caryl's stained glass class. The whole course was well set out and was wonderfully delivered by Caryl, who was extremely knowledgeable, and helpful. The groups are small, which means that Caryl has plenty of time to assist people. A busy, fun, but relaxing day. Lunch was wonderful and at the end we all had a wonderful stained glass panel to take home with us. I would highly recommend this course. I am looking forward to joining Caryl for another of her courses soon.

I've just attended the Making a Stained Glass Leaded Panel workshop with Caryl. The course was very interesting and Caryl was extremely supportive on the day, helping with aspects of the design and construction of my leaded panel, giving lots of tips and insight and also being very understanding of my allergies by providing all the safety equipment I could need, making my day very comfortable. I would highly recommend Caryl's courses, she is a talented and passionate artist which is evident through the enjoyable course she delivers and the lovely glass panel you can take home at the end of the day after a bit of work yourself.

I've just completed a one day introduction to stained glass, making a lovely panel. As a complete beginner, this course was an excellent introduction to stained glass lead work. Caryl's easy going manner and friendly approach makes the day especially enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable and supportive, ensuring that you are not only learning and developing new skills,but also able to explore your own design ideas and apply these ideas to the process.
I would thoroughly recommend a course with Caryl and will definitely be coming back for more!
Thank you Caryl for your patience today - I had a fabulous time.

I attended the class not knowing anything and came home with a light catcher I am immensely proud of! Caryl is a very good teacher and is patient and helpful and I now feel that I am able to have a go myself at home. My family are amazed at what I've achieved and I think I will be making a few presents for people when Christmas comes! I can't recommend Caryl enough if you are thinking of having a go, the place is very easy to get to and with a light lunch thrown in it's a totally enjoyable day!

Just finished a course with Caryl, completing 2 stained glass panels. This was such a great experience - Caryl was very supportive, hugely knowledgable, friendly, and helpful throughout. It was amazing to leave with my first completed stained glass panels - it feels like I have started along a new path... Lunch was very tasty too!
Many thanks, Caryl.

I attended the landscape class over 2 days . We really enjoyed the creative time spent on the pieces and learning all the processes involved in the making of stained glass. Caryl was very helpfull and patient and the 2 days were well structured and very informative. We all came away with lovely pieces that we will treasure for years to come .
