Carole is an excellent teacher it doesn't matter at what level you work she will help you to achieve an item. Carole prepared the course well and the setting was perfect.
Very pleased with the item produced, and will be returning to Carole's stained glass courses again.

Excellent course in every respect. Accomodation and catering were first class, and the course itself was engaging and inspiring. George is an ideosyncratic tutor, and hugely knowledgable. He dealt effortlessly with the varying degrees of skill and experience presented by a class of widely different abilities. Despite the extended workshop sessions (this is a positive thing, George certainly wasn't clock watching) I never once felt that I wasn't occupied/learning/improving. Left the course with a great sense of satisfaction, and inspired to study the craft further.

An excellent and enjoyable week-end. I started as an absolute beginner and was guided by the tutor on every step. I surprised myself and came away with my own "work of art"!

With the help of Carole who is a really good and patient tutor, I was able to make a beautiful heart shaped stained glass with a mirror in the centre. I am thrilled with what I managed to achieve.
The venue is exceptional, and I feel really privileged to have been able to do the course there.

The course was very well prepared and my wife and I both succeeded in making very presentable stained glass hearts - with Carole's help and support. Approach to health and safety was exemplary. The day as a whole exceeded my expectations.

My second time attending the Stained Glass Course at FSC Flatford Mill.
The location is absolutely delightful & the staff can't do enough for you & make you feel very welcome ☺The accommodation though basic is 5* basic, clean & excelent for what you need. It's a full on, enjoyable course so you don't get to, nor do you want to, spend time languishing in your room.
Sharon, the teacher is friendly, good fun, helpful & very encouraging. I've met lots of nice people of different abilities and all with interesting backgrounds. Whether we've believed we're "arty" or not at the beginning, under Sharon's guidance, we've all gone home with an absolute gem of stained glass.

It was great to get in a classroom. I enjoyed myself and i am extremely pleased with glass heart. The food was good. And most of all Carole Gray was very helpful.

As always, a very stimulating and enjoyable week with George and a group of enthusiastic students. I've been attending since 2009 and learn something new every time. Looking forward to May already.

A great weekend learning a new skill in beautiful surroundings.
This is my second time of attending this course and both times have been left with a great feeling of achievement .
Facilities at the centre are excellent but mainly the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff stands out with an obvious sense of pride in their work whilst promoting the centre at its best.
Look forward to returning !

I have been studying with Gaynor for several years and long may it continue. She is both an excellent calligrapher and tutor, offering guidance and support whilst encouraging her pupils to develop their own style.
Flatford Mill is a tranquil weekend retreat. Be prepared for basic accommodation but a very warm welcome and wholesome food. A great place to get away from the madness of modern life.
