Paul Downie reviewed: Introduction to traditional stained glass (1 day) in Sheffield, South Yorkshire

"Excellent day. Very enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Kate was an excellent tutor and I found the skills/process led approach very helpful which resulting in a great piece of work, considering I was a complete novice at 10 o clock in the morning, on completion. The cafe, for lunch, is spot on!"

"Martin is a superstar as a teacher. He has taught us all the basic skills and then only intervenes when there's a technical problem that we can't sort out for ourselves. There's a lot to learn and he's the person to guide you through. Highly recommended."

Martin McAssey Glass responded:

" Thank you for the review."

"Additional review of the One day Scrap Glass course : I also did the one day scrap glass course with Kate Billington this Autumn which I would also highly recommend. Kate is a great teacher, all materials are supplied and we managed to cram in all the techniques and steps leading to a completed scrap glass mosaic piece by the end of the day. It was a great way to utilise spare small stained glass pieces to make another beautiful object! "

Patrick Crowley reviewed: Stained glass weekly classes in Sheffield (South Yorkshire)

"This was my first ever stained glass course, having been inspired to try this field from a previous mosaic glass course. I found this course to be excellent in building my skills from novice to having produced three pieces of work by the end of the course using the various techniques listed. It has been a great outlet for my creativity and I have found the lessons very enjoyable, a place where I can just switch off from the outside world and be in the creative zone for a few hours each week. All tools are supplied on the course and a thorough instruction is given in how to use them and any safety procedures to follow. The workshop is modern, purpose-built, well located with parking and accessible by public transport. Martin is a great instructor, offering good quality teaching, advice on all aspects including on my own end project and gave me good encouragement throughout the course which built my confidence further. I would not hesitate to recommend this course and I have already booked for my second course in 2023. "
