Maker's bio

Join me at my private garden studio just outside of Bognor Regis in West Sussex, to learn the art of glass. I have over 25 years experience working with, creating and teaching both fused and traditional stained glass. Maximum three students to a class so plenty of one to one tuition. All materials supplied. Further classes offered for regular students. Relaxed, modern and creative environment. Private group sessions and one to one days by arrangement.

Vicky reviewed: Beginners fused glass - One day workshop

"My friend and I had an enjoyable experience with Jan. She took us through the techniques and safety aspects of the day. She modelled some possible designs and then let us make our own pieces. She was on hand to advise us, when needed and provided extra materials to enhance our designs. We had a very calm and enjoyable day and have produced pieces we feel proud of. We are looking forward to seeing how they look when fired."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

" Thanks Vicky for your review. I am really looking forward to seeing your pieces and will get them posted out to you as soon as they are "fully cooked". Kind regards Jan Simpson"

Sandy Arpino reviewed: Beginners fused glass - One day workshop

"This is a fantastic course that I'd recommend to any beginner. Jan has a vast wealth of experience and skill, and is the perfect teacher. After a very useful demonstration we had enough knowledge to start on our own pieces - with Jan there to help and guide as much or as little as we wanted. I'm going back to work further in Jan's studio, confident that I'll learn lots more and develop my own skills quickly under her expert tuition."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

" Thank you Sandy. Look forward to seeing you soon:)"

Fiona Underwood reviewed: Stained glass for beginners - two day workshop

"I did this course with Jan and came away with a lovely piece and the knowledge to try it all again at home. Totally got the bug, the tuition was clear, class size small and loads of tips and feedback on progress."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

" Thanks Fiona, it was great to see your finished piece after it had been polished. What a beautiful job. Look forward to watching you develop your new found hobby."

Susan Cranmer reviewed: Beginners fused glass - One day workshop

"I had a great day with Jan. She is passionate about her craft and passes on great advice to a beginner. We were shown all the basic techniques to get us started on our own projects with help and suggestions to fire (no pun intended :-)) our imaginations. Jan allow us the use all her materials (which are considerable) so that we could experiment as well as making something beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend this course."

Koru Arts Glass responded:

" Thank youfor your lovely review Sue. Your piece is cooking in the kilns today and should be ready tomorrow."
