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.
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.
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.
I researched before I went on this course, so I knew Jenny knew her stuff. I am a glass artist already, who wanted to learn more techniques and how certain things are made. We covered so much , I've come away literally bursting with ideas. I made a lot of pieces, which I'm looking forward to seeing. Jenny certainly knows her stuff. I was really impressed.
This is a really intense 2 day course about creating images in glass on the surface using enamels, sandblasting and lots of other interesting metal based products that create imagery on to glass. This was such a fabulous and diverse course. I met some great people and enjoyed every minute.
This was my second course at Cheshire school of Glass. It was even better than the first. Jenny's talent and expertise helped all of us create beautiful pieces to take home. I am so proud of what I have made and can't wait to put them in the garden and show family and friends. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone, whether you are a beginner or have worked with glass before. Emma Cunningham
This is the creme de la creme of glass courses. Jenny has an excellent reputation as a Glass Artist and Tutor. She is so personable and has such an easy manner that she makes everyone feel at ease and creates self -belief in her students. Everyone created beautiful work that I think they didnt know they were capable of. I am definitely going to do another course with Cheshire School of Glass. Rachel Stanaway
The course was so full of information and really excellent! I had heard of Jenny's reputation through the glass company Pearsons Glass and the fact she teaches at a University, I knew she really knew her stuff. But she was modest and so approachable. I have a kiln and I am beyond the initial fusing stage so I wasn't sure what I could be taught. How wrong could I be? Jenny is inspirational. I recommend this course. I personally think you could do this course as a beginner as well as experienced. The other 3 ladies and myself had mixed ability and Jenny catered for all our levels.
What a great day! A friend and I booked this. We live in stockport, so it was close enough for us to drive over to Frodsham for the day. The workshop was really lovely. We had lots of materials to use in every colour needed and lots of dicroich glass to play with! We learnt to programme the kiln, not that I could remember how to do it again! Jenny gave us firing temperature notes though! Jenny also introduced us to Microwave kilns . I had never heard of them, so i and Lucy may buy on between us. Jenny gave us loads of jewellery findings to put our pieces on. Two very happy customers!
