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!
I have done this course at Cheshire School of Glass with Stephanie. It was brilliant. We made large panels that I would never have realised I could do. Thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend this course to anyone.
I have recently attended a one to one with cheshire school of glass for two days. I came with a specific goal in mind and left with much more! Fantastic experience with a highly knowlegable person. Good value for money.
Brilliant course! I'm totally shattered, but loved every minute of this 2 day course. Jenny is a lovely teacher. I will be back.
With the help of Jenny I made a fantastic Owl on a slate back which is going on the wall outside my kitchen outside. I'm chuffed to bits with it!
This has been a really brilliant experience. Jenny was so generous in every way. Please keep us on your books for other courses. I'm particularly interested if you do a pate de verre course as we discussed.
I didn't want to go home. What can I say? The course went too quickly. I have wanted to work with glass for such a long time, now I have found Jenny , I/m going to come back and do the rest of hers and Steph's courses at The Cheshire School of Glass. We all got on so wee as a group and I think we will all stay in touch, which is a bonus. Thank you for a fabulous time and the scones!
I am so excited to see the results tomorrow. Ive had a great day and feel like a kid again. Jenny was so inspiring and helpful. Jodie thank you for your kindness and input as well. I will definitely be coming back. My family will be getting lots of Glass presents from now on, unless I like them too much to give away.
We had a brilliant time on this course. I'm booking on another with Jenny and with Steph. They know so much and I enjoyed the instant results you got with sandblasting. The equipment all worked really well and I went back to collect my beautifully boxed parcel of goodies today and we delighted with the results.
I have never worked with glass before. I loved it! Jen taught us to cut glass and how to create stencils. We learnt about compatibility and what to use and what not to use! Jen gave us loads of notes on firing the kiln too; I don't have a kiln yet, but I think I will get a small one after doing a few more courses with Cheshire School of Glass. We were given a discount voucher for another course which I intend on booking now. Thank you for a great day.
The course was so much fun! Jenny and her helpers had us cutting and shaping santas and snowflakes, penguins and xmas trees in all kinds of colours and decorating them with dichroics and millefoire . I went with my Mum and sister in=law. We loved every minute. Jenny made us feel really festive with mince pies and xmas music. We made so many decorations and plan to give them as stocking fillers and gifts to friends and family. I thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who wants to get in the christmas spirit and loves upmarket crafting!
I specifically wanted to learn how to make large thick float panels for architecture, with particular reference to how to create texture. Jenny taught me above and beyond what I envisaged I could learn in two days. It was intensive and I have come away wth an exercise book full of notes. Jenny is a very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her courses to both glass artists and novices.
I made 4 different sculptural pieces to go in to a metal frame for the garden- one for each season. I loved this course. I met some great people and Jenny was generous and patient with my inability .to cut glass. Great fun
I have been on the glass for the garden course recently with Cheshire School of Glass. It was wonderful. The farm based business was in a beautiful beamed barn with lots of materials and two very talented teachers who have worked in glass for a long time. They were all great, approachable, lovely ladies.
Jenny knows so much about working with glass. I did a glass course about 6 months prior to this one using different techniques. Jenny is very generous with her knowledge and very approachable. Nothing was too much bother. great location and great facilities. Good value for money.
Jenny what can I say... Wow!! A brilliant fun packed day. I'm totally pooped and it was worth every penny. I have learnt so much from you. I will sleep well tonight, after a long journey back to Malborough.
All the best, Stacey.
