Maria reviewed: Leaded Glass Taster Day

"Had the most amazing day with Derek I learned so much, he is so patient and explains everything in detail but in a way that a newbie like me understands. The workshop is lovely light and airy and warm bonus !! I took a design I wanted to do hoping I could do it and Derek helped me achieve it so I was over the moon. I highly recommend Derek's workshops. The added extra is at lunch time I met his fabulous family and Jura the dog thank you again Derek x"

Julia reviewed: Glass painting taster day

"This is the fourth course that I have attended with Derek at the beautiful Limelight Studios. I always have a fabulous time and this was no exception. This time it was a leaded glass workshop. Derek explained how to use all the tools in the studio and how to cut glass efficiently and safely. He explained everything so clearly, giving me confidence to make something I’m really proud of. I learnt so much and had a great day, made even better by a seemingly endless supply of delicious coffee and biscuits! Perfect! "

Derek Hunt Artist responded:

" Thank you Julia for such a lovely review!"

Ian reviewed: Glass painting taster day

"Just wanted to thank you so much for a fantastic day on Saturday. The whole experience was a real thrill for me. Thoroughly enjoyed the Workshop and getting a feel for the art of leading, and I really look forward to getting the few extra tools and materials I need to start a few other small projects, to gain experience and develop my skills. Just wish I had started many years ago!! I would certainly love the opportunity to be included in any additional workshops that you may hold in 2023, and shall watch out for any announcement. Sooner rather than later, eh??"

Derek Hunt Artist responded:

" Hi Ian, Thank you so much for your great review, and so pleased you enjoyed the course."
