My husband booked the Glass for the Garden course for me for my birthday. It was a fantastic day. I made lots of high end stunning garden pieces that I designed myself with Jennifer's help. I was thrilled with results. Jennifer is a lovely teacher with a lot of skill and advice. The best birthday present I've had.
This was an excellent experience. I would go again. I have a kiln already and work with glass, but Jennifer taught me so much. I can't say enough good thing about the teaching and whole experience. As other reviews have said... well worth the money.
I had a wonderful day with Steph at The Cheshire school of Glass. This course was excellent and Steph is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and patient. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. The studio has a lovely barn conversion warmth about it, which was a pleasure to work in.
The two days went so quickly doing this course. I learnt so much in such a short space of time. I would highly recommend doing this course to anyone before considering getting a kiln of their own. I have done both the basic fusing and intermediate ( with a discount of 10% after completion of one course). Great facilities and a brilliant teacher.
Two days of excellent teaching pushed all of us beyond expectations: individual advice was very helpful and thorough. I have never learnt to do something to such a professional level before. Jenny taught us all some brilliant tricks to create incredible work. Our results were phenomenal.
Steph is a lovely teacher. I really enjoyed being taught by her. She is really skilled and great at explaining the process . I came away with a beautiful copperfoiled panel that I am really pleased with. This course was fantastic. I will come back and do another in the New year!
The best creative course I have ever been on. It was well structured , inspiring and totally absorbing. I have never learned so much in such a short space of time. Jenny is an excellent teacher with a well deserved reputation for being the best glass fusing teacher in North England.
This course is brilliant. I had the most incredible day. I thought we were going to make pretty coasters and little wall hangings! How wrong could I be! Jenny is an excellent teacher. She taught all of us so much in one day and we made big works of art! Three in total. When we finished , myself and the other delegates were a bit dazed and amazed at what we had achieved and learnt in one day. We all loved every minute. I would recommend this course to everyone who likes to immerse themselves in creativity and absorb all the exciting things Jenny has to offer in her beautiful studio.
My wife and I spent a fantastic morning with the lovely Jenny Barker at her studio in Frodsham. Not only did we have a really great time; the pieces that we made were beyond our expectations. We were given steel frames to put the glass art in that are exceptionally well made to go in the garden all year round. Anyone who goes on the course will agree it is great value for money.
I have learnt more than I ever expected. Jenny is one of the only tutors in glass who is willing to really tell you how to start up in glass. She is generous and open with knowledge. I have been to other glass schools around the country and found Cheshire School of Glass to be in a different league in every way.
This was a really great course. If I can afford to I will do it again. It was information overload! worth every penny. I came away with so much knowledge and ability after such a short space of time. I've just purchased my kiln , so I'm all set to go. I couldn't have done it without Jenny Barker's help at Cheshire school of Glass.
I thoughly enjoyed my weekend creating a stain glass window. It was intensive but such fun and Steph is an excellent teacher and so knowledgeable. I am thrilled with my window and it looks fantastic hanging up. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn something different.
This was a really fabulous course. Lots of information given about how to create foreground and background of land and seascapes. Jenny made everything so lovely for us all. The finished pieces were really wonderful. I think we were all blown away with the results. Excellent course.
An excellent course with a wonderful , knowledable tutor. Jenny gives 100 %. You come away with a vast amout of work and so many ideas. I have bought a kiln and Jenny has guided me through doing everything , including picking the right kiln and what to use. Jenny made sure I understood the firing of glass thoroughly, so I didn't feel daunted when I fired it on my own. A really worthwhile experience.

This course was outstanding. It was both well executed and inspiring. I was taught some vital skills to set up my own workshop. The quality of the pieces we made were beyond my expectations. I was delighted with the results. Jenny is very welcoming and gives her all to the people who come on the class.
As a teacher myself I felt compelled to write a review and say what an exceptional tutor Jenny is. She is a University Lecturer in Art and clearly knows what she is talking about. She created a warm and friendly atmosphere, whilst talking all students through how to create the varying depths of field in glass. Two other people admittedto having limited artistic ability. I must say each of us created incredible results through the guidance of an excellent teacher. We made both a Seascape and Landscape Piece. This is a wonderful course. The results really were astounding.
An excellent two day course full of useful information, lots of handouts and plenty of high end materials to experiment with. Jenny catered for eveyone's previous experiences in glass. Some of us had done courses with Jenny before, some elsewhere. A good mix of technical theory and practical to really give you a grounding of glass fusing. We made a lot of quality pieces in two day. I felt we all really had our moneys worth. Fab course. I recommend it.
An incredible experience. Jenny is so enthusiatic and knowledgable you can't help but enjoy eveything this course has to offer. I was fortunate enough to have Jenny to myself on this course and it really was awonderful two days. I'm amazed at how much I made over 2 days. The time went so quickly it was hard to leave. I will definitely go again to cheshire school of glass art.
I have never worked with glass before, so I wasn't sure if this course would be appropiate for me. I would encourage anyone who has no experience in glass or has had a go before to do this course. Jenny taught me to cut glass with ease , create original designs ( even though I can't draw! ) and learn how the fusing technique works. At the end of the course we were given a well made metal structure to hold our glass work.
