Hugely enjoyable weekend and I learnt so much to feel confident to continue with this art.
Gill is a great teacher!

The most amazing weekend with the gorgeous Gill, so much knowledge and happiness, what a wonderful teacher!
Response from Gill Rogers:Hi Millie
A fantastic day with you Gill and thanks very much for all your help, I love my sunburst and it looks beautiful hanging in my window. Can't wait to come back and do the Xmas Tree decorations with you!
See you soon Gill
Response from Gill Rogers:Many thanks Margaret for your lovely review and kind comments, so great to meet you and hope to see again sometime in the near future.
Gill is a wonderful human being and an excellent teacher! She is fantastic at sharing her knowledge and helped me feel so at ease and comfortable. The two day course has left me inspired, confident and eager to do more stained glass at home, and I can’t wait! Thank you Gill for the most amazing experience!
Response from Gill Rogers:Thank you so much for your fabulous review and lovely comments Marie, I had such a fun time and it was such a pleasure to meet you and your wonderful family.
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.
Response from Gill Rogers: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!
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!!
Response from Gill Rogers: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!
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 😊
Response from Gill Rogers:Thank you so much for your wonderful, kind comments Jo and it was such a great pleasure to meet you and Mike.
A brilliant day making 'Xmas Robins and Stars'
Thank you very much Gill for all your help and expertise, we had such a magical day and will definitely be back hopefully sometime in the New Year!

Response from Gill Rogers:Thank you so much Katie for your lovely words and kind comments, so thrilled to hear you enjoyed the course and I too had such a fun day with you.
My friend & I have done both this leaded stained glass day & the Christmas decorations with copper foiled stained glass. The days were both great fun. We learnt a lot, had a gorgeous lunch & really enjoyed ourselves. The workshops are well taught & made more fun by Gill's lovely bubbly personality.
Response from Gill Rogers:Hi Sharon
I spent a fantastic weekend with Gill Rogers learning about traditional stained glass techniques. The weekend was informative, relaxed and fun and I brought home a beautiful stained glass panel that I can proudly say 'I made' (with some help from Gill). I do though feel that I can have a go at home once I have bought some essential equipment; and can't wait to try out my new skills. Thank you Gill for a fabulous introduction and for giving me the confidence to have a go. Also I cannot recommend highly enough the fabulous gallery and cafe at Craft Renaissance for their hospitality and the beautiful works on show from various artists. A fantastic course in a beautiful and relaxing setting - 11/10!
