I work as a teacher and artisan both in stained glass and traditional buiding techniques. After a Fine Art degree I first started stained glass myself in 2002 as an evening class and never looked back. I have a passion for traditional crafts and I enjoy being able to bring enthusiam and energy to teaching others. The glass courses I run at our purpose built applied arts workshop are designed to give students the chance to develop their own ideas and it is amazing what gets produced.

One day stained glass classes by Le Breton Traditional
"Me and my wife had a great day on the course. Matt was a very good teacher, giving clear and thorough explanations of the techniques involved, and gave demonstrations at each new stage of the build process. It was a really nice relaxed atmosphere even though it's a really busy day. We'd love to go again. Thanks Matt"
"Thank you Matt for a wonderful day on your glass course. I had never done anything like this before but was absolutely delighted with the end result. It was a small group so you were able to spend plenty of time with all of us. You explained everything very well but you were on hand when something seemed to be going wrong or confidence dipped. I would certainly recommend this class. Thank you"
"What a fantastic full day of learning stain glass, Matt was very professional & highly knowledgeable in this craft. Lovely atmosphere & made very welcome too.
Matt was always at hand to help & advise, also stepped in if needed.
Definitely highly recommend to anyone that is a beginner & never done anything like this before, to someone like myself who has dabbled a little bit but wanted to gain more knowledge & skill.
I’m so pleased with the final piece of traditional leaded stain glass I made!
Thank you so much Matt ! Pleasure to meet you & for you to share your skill with us all.
P.s. Thanks for the coffees & mince pies!
