I recommend this course to anyone. Even if you aren't that artistic. We used clever tricks to create really professional looking imagery. Steph and Jenny worked really hard to give the absolute maximum to all 4 students. This course is fantastic. Thank you to both of you.
This course was exceptional. Jenny is so warm and friendly, but even more importantly a true professional. If you have thought about setting up a business or just having a glass workshop Jen provides all the key information and skills to get you set up. I made a mountain of stuff as well. I thoroughly agree with a comment someone else has put...
Jen is exceptionally generous with knowledge and materials.
A fabulous day with a highly skilled and technically brilliant teacher. Jenny is really generous and patient. A lovely warm welcoming atmosphere. I didn't want to leave at the end of the day! I came home with my head bursting with ideas. The only problem is, you want to go back and do more. Going to Jenny's studio is so relaxing and creative. Anyone creative would really enjoy this course. I considered the price when I booked it to be a little on the steep side. However, with what everyone makes, the technical knowledge acquired and the generosity of materials I would say this is amazing value for money.
I did a 2 day mosaic course yesterday at the Cheshire School of Glass. I made a huge mosaic, having never worked with glass before. I learnt to cut glass in to any shape , grind glass , bond and grout all to a pattern I designed! I didn't even get my Art O'Level, but Jenny gives you the confidence to believe in yourself and achieve wonderful results.
Jenny has taught me how to effectively set up my glass workshop. I learnt which kiln to get, what tools and materials I need, how to programme a kiln and which glasses to you - and the pros and cons of different glasses. I cannot recommend Jenny enough as a teacher. She is so generous with her knowledge and workshop. She genuinely wants you to learn as much as possible and correctly to set up successfully . I loved this course.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in starting to work with glass. Jenny is encouraging , kind and a very knowledgeable teacher. She makes the process clear and fun to learn. Cheshire School of Glass is set in a barn conversion on a very pretty farm. The space is light and airy with a great creative atmosphere.
The images course run at the Cheshire school of Glass is amazing. They are generous with materials. Jenny is so good at bringing the best out in people's ability. I loved every bit of the two days and would love to go back. I learnt so much from a highly skilled professional.
My sister-in-law and I had a great day. Jenny is an excellent teacher and she makes you feel like you're an expert. She was generous with the materials and the tea. I would highly recommend a course with her, even if you're not particularly artistic, this is a course you will come away from with a great sense of achievement
Thank you Jenny and Steph for the best course I have ever been on. You have made me believe I can do something well! The pieces that I made came out of the kiln really well. Even my family think they are fabulous. I have brought this course for my husband, daughter and myself (again ) to do together - in hope that my husband and daughter will see buying a kiln is a good idea. Cheshire school of glass is an excellent centre for all things glass .
I've been on a course recently with Jenny Barker at Cheshire school of Glass. A highly professional day . I was very impressed with the tutors knowledge and teaching skills. I would recommend this course to anyone. The results were amazing. They are now situated in my garden pride of place. Well worth the money.
Stephanie at The Cheshire School of Glass has taught me and my husband stained Glass Lead Lights for 2 days. She is very knowledgable , patient and talented. She not only taught us to create a finished lead light, but kiln firing stains and lustres as well as sanblasting. The studio is beautiful, warm and inviting. An ideal way to spend a weekend. Thank you Stephanie.
Jenny is the real deal. Her knowledge of glass techniques is incredible. I thought the one to one was a lot of money until I came away from an incredible day where I made and learnt so much. I now realise it was really good value for money. Jenny is easy to get on with and is welcoming and relaxed. She teaches with genuine enthusiasm and in my view, is the best glass fuser in the business. A real professional.
We had a brilliant day! Jenny made it so much fun. We really got in the mood for christmas! Mince pies and Bing Crosby in abundance! The decoration we made will be treasured for ever! I'm so pleased with the results and the amount we made. Thank you Jenny an awsome day. I will be back for the basic fusing course.
This was absolutely outstanding. Jen is an excellent teacher, able to answer any question and offer all encouragement as well. It was a fantastic 2 days in which I was able to try both microwave and conventional kiln firing.
I wanted to know how to use a kiln safely and fire the work. I have been on several courses before doing glass fusion. This course was incredible. Jenny gave us all so much information and handouts and made the whole daunting experience of buying a kiln and using it in your own home easier. Jenny's technical knowledge and support is wonderful. She is the lovliest lady and really goes out of her way to create extremely high quality courses. I have since booked Images in glass course because Jenny offers a discount for people who have been on previous courses.
We spent a great day with Jen, who is kind, generous and very patient. We made outdoor and indoor pieces with her help and encouragement. When we collected them we were really chuffed with the results. We would recommend this for anyone-it is amazing what you can achieve first time.
