Carol Brand reviewed: GLASS FUSING Weekend Workshop

"This was great introduction to glass fusion. Jeff presented everything very well and helped when there was any queries. I would recommend the course to anyone thinking about it. I met David this morning when I went to collect my items from the kiln and he was also very helpful. We discussed future courses and options. Very best wishes to them both, Carol"

"A really wonderful course. David was such a patient and encouraging teacher and very generously shared with us his lovely studio space, plus his expertise and experience of making stained glass. It was a real sense of achievement to create our own lead light panels to take home and fun to meet new people and try something new. I would definitely recommend this course."

"Had a great time at this workshop and was really pleased with what we were able to produce in the time. Lots of assistance was given but we were able to do every step of the process ourselves. A great day!"

"I’ve done millions of different courses – I think this might possibly be the best one ever! There’s something about this medium that is incredibly absorbing. And David, we both really enjoyed your teaching and inspirational energy! I’ll definitely do more glass painting courses at some point…. Thanks very much for these YouTube links et cetera – always good to get this kind of stuff to keep me motivated."

"David ran a really good course. The only thing missing was course notes to go with it. I know we will get something by email but it would have been good to have them at the time."

Mary Cook reviewed: Stained glass for beginners | Lead lights

"Excellent course! We learned about types of glass and looked at different pieces that David had made and some CRM works for inspiration. We practised cutting, then chose our design and glass. We cut, ground and copper foiled the pieces , following David demonstration . Then we soldered our pieces. We were encouraged and supported at each stage and all went home with a finished piece of glass."

"A very well prepared and organised course. David’s friendly manner was reassuring for a complete beginner. There was a great deal of support given to achieve a finished piece of work. I enjoyed the weekend, meeting other more experienced students and learning from their examples. I would be happy to do other courses with David as he is a very gifted artist and teacher."

"Wonderful introduction to the world of leaded stained glass. David is a natural born teacher with great enthusiasm for his subject. Very approachable and supportive and keeps calm when his students get into a panic (which I did :-)). I am so pleased with the panel he helped me to make; it feels like a real achievement and has given me the confidence to go forward and try it on my own. A word of advice to any prospective students, keep the design simple as there is so much to learn about the techniques involved and enjoy."

"Had a brilliant time at the beginners stained glass course with David. He was very good at explaining the diverse processes and kind enough to show me again if I messed up! Excellent course - pace just perfect. The finished panel was beyond my expectation. Wish it was longer!"

Jacqui reviewed: Painting on Glass (Level Two)

"David created a great atmosphere for learning, experimenting and having fun. A steep learning curve for a beginner like me, but everyone achieved some vital and powerful works, through being encouraged to engage with their own creativity. David has so much experience and artistic integrity to pass on. Would love to do another week end."
