Stained Glass Beginners Workshop

The day was a Christmas gift from my partner as I expressed interest in learning more about glass cutting and it was for beginners as a taster course. I had no previous experience in cutting glass, and it took a while to get the hang of it. David was quite short with me, in front of the rest of the class, on more than one occasion.
Although I realize he is passionate about his craft, and very talented,I found his attitude really rude and quite embarrassing.

Hi Pauline,

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your day learning to make your stained glass panel. Yes, you struggled in the beginning as do many others, but by keeping it light-hearted and me showing you different methods of using different cutting tools you overcame the problems you were experiencing and you acheived your goal, which you told me was to make a stained glass panel - and it was lovely. Also you were the first to finish.

I was not aware that I was treating you differently from anyone else, so I am sorry you did not enjoy the day.

An excellent morning and wonderful to leave with a piece of jewellery I can wear. I have attended David's stained glass course in the past, and as before David was an excellent teacher. He takes you through each stage of the process and is incredibly patient. All the tools and equipment you could possibly need were to hand. A lovely small group and each person made their own individual design. Looking forward to the next course!

Thanks Krish for that lovely review. You made an amazing (and advanced for a complete beginner) ring and it was great to see you surprise yourself. I look forward to seeing you on one of the full day courses that will be running later in 2020.

Such an enjoyable morning and so surprising what you can create and make in a morning. David is an excellent teacher and makes the whole process enjoyable, light and fun. I’d never made any jewellery before and it was fascinating to see what goes into it, I felt a wonderful sense of achievement at the end. The workshop space is so well equipped and laid out and the course just flows beautifully. It’s a gorgeous peaceful location in the Sussex Downs, the views are stunning. Highly recommend.

Stained Glass Beginners Workshop

David was a great instructor and clearly passionate about stained glass works and sharing his enthusiasm with others. David gave clear instructions and demonstrations and very patiently repeated and re-demonstrated when requested. An extremely enjoyable and thoroughly productive, stimulating and motivating day which I would definitely recommend to others. I'd like to come back and do more.

A great day. I had never had a go at Stained Glass before. David was an excellent instructor, and took us through each stage steadily and slowly. Would love to have another go!

Thanks for your lovely review.

I enjoyed the day and came away with the things I had made. Only downside was that as there were 7 of us in the class I seemed to spend a lot of time waiting to use the equipment.

Response from David J Lilly:

Thanks for your great review. There were in fact only six people on the course and I'd really like to know what you felt you were waiting to use as each participant had their own set of main tools, it was only the specialist tools and single forge that there was limited numbers of. If you can help me improve the experience I'd like to know how.
