Dianne Wilford reviewed: Leaded Glass Taster Day

"Hi Derek, I would just like to thank you on behalf of my son, Jason Wilford, and his daughter Shannon (my granddaughter) for your leaded glass taster day on the 23rd April. They had a really fabulous day and they couldn't praise you enough for the course, content and your knowledge and enthusiasm for your craft and for the projects you are also working on. They also said there was a lovely, friendly atmosphere in your workshop too and it was nice to meet the others also on the course. (Shannon was also impressed when you played some Pink Floyd). Your taster course has now sparked an interest in leaded glasswork for them and it was great that they could both share this experience as a 'dad n daughter' birthday learning together day. So thank you once again for this. Many best wishes for the future, Dianne Wilford"

Derek Hunt Artist responded:

" Dear Dianne, Thank you so much for your kind words, very much appreciated. It's great to know the course was enjoyed by your family and they got lots out of the Taster Day. Thank you again and best wishes to you and your family, Yours, Derek"

Helen Fields reviewed: Leaded Glass Taster Day

"I attended one of Derek Hunt's Leaded Glass Taster Days at his lovely studio in Medbourne. It was a wonderful experience and I was thrilled at the standard of panel I was able to go home with, especially as I have no background or skills in art. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and Derek gave clear, calm instructions and gave as much help as was required by each person. I came with no experience and learnt a variety of skills without ever feeling pressured or rushed. Derek was very warm and welcoming and it was so interesting to be taught by someone with such extensive knowledge. I would highly recommend this course, not just for what you produce, but for the tonic of concentrating for a day on producing something of beauty."

Derek Hunt Artist responded:

" Hello Helen, thank you so much for your kind words, very much appreciated. Great to know you enjoyed the course. With best wishes as always, Derek"

Margaret Noblett reviewed: Leaded Glass Taster Day

"Thank you so much for the leaded glass taster day today. I am still amazed I came home with a completed glass leaded window. Thank you for your patience, teaching and making me feel like I could do this. It was a great day and your calm approach helped. I love stained glass windows and will have a memory of today forever. Thank you also to you and your wife for your hospitality."

Derek Hunt Artist responded:

" Hi Margaret, Thank you so much for your lovely comments, and I'm really happy you enjoyed the day. Best wishes, Derek"
