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.
An amazing experience. A good mixture of theory and practice. From start to finish Jenny and
Steph gave their all to ensure we not only gained sufficient knowledge but had an enjoyable day. I can't recommend this course more highly. Will definitely be returning to learn more
A lovely location with excellent tuition. I was very impressed with how much we got on this course for the money paid. Not only did we make lots of pieces of glass, we also got very good quality metal frames to take home for our gardens. I will go back for more tuition at Cheshire School of Glass.
This was the best course I've been on. Good value for money. Jenny explained everything so clearly. I have been worried about firing the kiln I have bought and she made it all so easy. She is a very generous spirited teacher who knows the answer to all your questions. Jenny gave me lots of firing curves, for all the different glasses and catered to everyone's individual needs. A lady called Steph assisted Jenny who was equally as helpful and generous with knowledge. I will go back again with the discount I get for doing a further course. Very good atmosphere.
Excellent course! Jenny created a date just for me and my sister-in- law, as we couldn't do the original date. Great venue, a very pretty workshop, that is spacious and inspiring. Jenny and Steph were really generous with materials and all of the equipment was excellent. We are so pleased with what we made. It's really addictive, so we are coming back to do more with our discount of a second course at Cheshire School of Glass.

An Excellent course! There were 4 of us on the course and we had such a good time. It was 2 days of indulgence and relaxing. Their were a lot of materials including dicroich glass. Jenny gave all of us jewellery findings for our work and showed us how to attach them. Lunch and drinks provided in abundance. I will definitely be purchasing a microwave kiln , which we tried... although most of our work was fired in a conventional kiln for speed.
My friend and I have been on this course. It was really good. There were plenty of materials and Jenny is a very inspiring teacher. We couldn't make the dates advertised, so Jenny very kindly found dates for us especially that suited us. Great value for money course in a pretty barn conversion.
Thank you for a great two days. I enjoyed all of it. My only criticism would be that I think this course should have been 3 days long. By the time I had realised the potential of the techniques sandblasting and enamel layering, I was in to the next day. But I suppose that is the nature of the beast - using a kiln and waiting to see the results the next day. Very good course though.
I have done this course. It was really good. I've got a10% off voucher for the next course, so I am doing the same one again as I just want to do more of the same.
Jenny and Steph are such a great team. They made everyone feel so welcome. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. You get 10% off the next course , so we are going to do glass fusing next. Cheshire school of glass is also affiliated with the glass company Pearsons in Liverpool, which means that we got a discount voucher for Pearsons coloured glass and tools . I loved this course and the people who ran it. Great place and wonderful equipment.
This was the best course I have been on. We got cake and tea on arrival, Jenny was so inspiring and upbeat and the studio is so pretty with lovely beams in a converted barn on a farm. We made more that I realised was possible and we got discounts for further courses and buying future materials from a company in Liverpool. I thought this was really good value for money.
My 2 teenage sons & I had a brilliant time. We are beginner's and Jen is so enthusiastic and helpful we really enjoyed it, and are so pleased with our finished pieces. Thank you.
I have just collected my fired glass from Cheshire School of Glass. I am so pleased with the results. We had the best time. Jenny is so welcoming and inspiring. I will be going to more courses there.
I have managed to keep all my fingers and thumbs. I've created a mosaic masterpiece which is huge! I can't believe I made it in just 2 days. I used Marine plywood as it will be going outside. Jenny was so encouraging and is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. The studio is lovely, but is up a small flight of stairs. I really enjoyed this course and learn't so much.
