Michelle, Troon Ayrshire reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"This course is outstanding and I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm delighted with my two finished pieces from being a complete novice at the start of my 2-day workshop. Both traditional lead and copper foiling techniques covered admirably in the 2 days. Gill was so skilled and enthusiastic and it was infectious. The pace was relaxed yet productive and tuition excellent throughout. A fab lunch and cakes too, all top notch. Don't delay, book today. I'm off to buy supplies to take up a new crafty addiction courtesy of Gill. "

Gill Rogers responded:

" Many thanks Michelle for your wonderful review and lovely comments, so thrilled to hear you enjoyed the course. It was so great to meet you and I had such a fun time too! Enjoy your beautiful stained glass panel and star and well done you, they looked absolutely stunning! Hope to see you again sometime in the near future. All my very best wishes Gill x"

Sophie reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"I'm so chuffed with what I was able to achieve over a weekend, with plenty of Gill's help (and her aircon unit keeping us cool!). As a complete novice to working with glass, the chance to bring my own design to life and come home with a completed project was brilliant. I can't wait to install my new panel in my house and enjoy it now. The rural setting of Gill's studio is beautiful and the farmshop cafe below provided us with delicious lunches and cakes for the weekend. The weekend felt like a real treat - thank you Gill!"

Gill Rogers responded:

" Thank you so much Sophie for your lovely comments, it was such a pleasure to meet you and I had such a fun weekend too! We’ll done you for creating such a stunning window and can’t wait to see a photo of it installed above your door👍😁 Many thanks and hope to see you again sometime in the near future when you get chance to visit us. All my very best wishes Gill x"

Catherine Rodgers reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"Had a wonderful weekend being inspired by Gill. Stained glass was a totally new thing to me and Gill was an excellent tutor. I was able to make a couple of pieces in different techniques. It was a bonus being able to work on my own design, rather than having to complete set pieces. This is a very flexible approach to teaching and appreciated. Unfortunately I was feeling the after effects of Covid, but Gill was adaptable and accommodating to ensure I could complete my pieces. Thoroughly recommend this course."

Gill Rogers responded:

" Many thanks Catherine for your lovely comments and so thrilled to hear you enjoyed the course. It was such a pleasure to meet you and hope you enjoy your beautiful stained glass panels, they looked absolutely stunning! Best wishes Gill x "

KRISTINA WIGGETT reviewed: Traditional Stained Glass Day Course

"I did the private 1:1 traditional stained glass 1 day course. The whole experience was FANTASTIC - I had a wonderful, fun day. Prior to the course, Gill had emailed me some extra info and driving directions - which I really appreciated. On the day itself, from the moment I met Gill, I realised it would be great day. Gill is AMAZING: she has a great personality and she is a extremely good teacher: very knowledgeable and very patient. Gill had prepared a table for me with an information pack, tools and a bottle of water. (she also made me a few cups of tea as well) I was a complete novice, but I didn't need to worry: Gill explained every step of the process, showed how to do things and then let me do it. When things didn't go always as planned, Gill helped me again and again with a lot of patience. We also had a very nice, very relaxing lunch in the onside café - very yummy and all homemade. In the evening I went home with a beautiful suncatcher and a lot of knowledge. I couldn't have wished for a better teacher and I can recommend this course 100% !"

Andrew BB reviewed: Traditional Stained Glass Day Course

"My husband and I had an AMAZING day with Gill Rogers, completely 5 star all the way. From the moment we arrived on a very wet and windy day, we were made to feel welcome and could not have asked for more. It was so exciting learning how to cut, shape and fit the glass together, ending with a lovely stained glass panel to take home. Not only was the day delightful, the lunch at the café on-site was simply delicious, all included in the cost of the course. We will certainly try this again at some point I'm sure. I can't recommend the course enough!"

Gill Rogers responded:

" Many thanks Andrew for your fabulous review, it was so great to meet you and Pete and I had such a fun day with you both! Hope to see you and Pete sometime in the near future! All my very best wishes to you both, Gill xx"

Frances reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"This is a must do course if you have any interest in stained glass and moderate, little or no expertise. As complete novices I and my friend had a great couple of days and learned how to select glass for a design, align it, cut it, grind, manipulate leading solder and finish off to have lovely objects to take home. Relaxed pace, lovey location, very encouraging and patient tutoring, with ample tea, a great lunch and conversation all thrown in. Thank you Gill."

Gill Rogers responded:

" Thank you so much for your wonderful, kind comments Frances and it was such a great pleasure to meet you and Liz. Loved your enthusiasm and I had such a fab time too! Many thanks and hope to see you and Liz again sometime in the near future. All my very best wishes Gill x"

Amelia Lambert reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"I was given this weekend stained glass course as a Christmas present, and I couldn't have asked for anything more wonderful! I was the only person booked onto this course, so benefitted from 1-1 tuition from the lovely Gill. I was given the option of creating one large A3 piece from leaded stained glass, or try a smaller leaded A4 stained glass piece on the first day and a copper-foil stained glass piece on the second. I chose the two separate pieces and am so glad I did- both techniques are really interesting, and Gill is a brilliant teacher! She made it so easy, from cutting the glass and stretching the lead to using the soldering iron. She explained everything clearly and made it an absolutely pleasure. It was so lovely to have someone so interesting and knowledgeable to chat to throughout the weekend, and the beautiful location also helped! As an added bonus, the lovely Santa and Michael from the farm shop on site made us the most delicious lunch. Worth visiting just for their white chocolate and raspberry brownies! I’ve come home with two beautiful pieces and am very much looking forward to returning in the future."

Gill Rogers responded:

" Many thanks Amelia for your wonderful review and kind comments, it was so lovely to meet you and I had such a fun time too! Hope your enjoy your beautiful stained glass leaded panel and bird suncatcher. Well done you, they looked absolutely stunning! Look forward to seeing you again sometime in the near future. All my very best wishes Gill x"

Marie Lowe reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"My Partner and I booked this course during the winter lockdown, as we are very interested in stained glass and we wanted something to look forward to! Attending course, which is in a stunning location and easy to find; was a lot more than was expected. Gill is a wonderful and friendly tutor, who made us feel comfortable and welcomed from the get go. The process of stained glass was taught very well with no pressure and we produced some beautiful pieces under Gills supervision. Lunch was included and covered by Gill, at the Cafe in the same building, which was so delicious, and a lovely bonus to be included in the overall course experience. Gill has gone above and beyond to provide not only a knowledgeable 2 day course, but a wonderful 2 days experience/getaway aswell. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend it to everyone!!"

Gill Rogers responded:

" Thank you so much for your wonderful kind comments Marie and it was so great to meet you and Marc. I loved your enthusiasm and company over the 2 days and had such a fab time too! Hope to see you again sometime in the near future. All my very best wishes Gill x"

Jo Power reviewed: Traditional stained glass weekend

"This course was everything and more than I hoped for. Gill is a dream of a tutor, knowledgable, encouraging, nothing is too much trouble she also has a fab sense of humour. I was made to feel welcome from the very start and the praise and encouragement she gave me over the 2 days has given me the confidence to carry on with this fascinating craft. I could have spent a week and more in her company learning from her vast knowledge. I have every intention of taking more courses from her when ever my schedule permits. Thank you Gill 😊"

Gill Rogers responded:

" Thank you so much for your wonderful, kind comments Jo and it was such a great pleasure to meet you and Mike. Loved your enthusiasm and I had such a fab time too! Many thanks Jo and hope to see you again soon. All my very best wishes Gill x"
