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
"Matt was such a great teacher, I had so much fun on the course, it was well structured and I learnt so much throughout the day. We all left with finished pieces and Matt even stayed longer to make sure everything was finished. "
"What a wonderful day! Matt is so passionate about what he does, and this shows in the ways he shares his knowledge. The workshop is a beautiful space to be in, and so much glass to choose from! The day ran at a good pace, and we hope to come back soon! Definitely recommend a class with Matt at Breton Traditional "
"An excellent one day course. A privilege to have been introduced to this wonderful craft by Matt, who gave clear instructions, was very engaging, inspirational and patiently guided the group of three through their projects, all completed in the day. Thoroughly recommended."
"My family and I enjoyed a wonderful day with Matt . We all learnt huge amounts about stained glass in a well equipped and lovely workshop . We were all taught some really good skills and the support to give us the confidence to achieve some amazing pieces . I would definitely want to return to do more ! "
