An inspiring full day which introduced me to another aspect of working with glass which I fully intend to pursue. Kate brought lots of ideas to the session and gave full explanations as we went along, was flexible and showed awareness of everyone's problems on an individual basis, I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.

My boyfriend and I had a great day, I would recommend this course to anyone. Martin is a great teacher, very patient and runs a really good session. We are chuffed to bits with our stained glass light catchers and would probably do this again.

This is such a fantastic course. Martin is a great tutor, everything was explained and demonstrated really well in a small group and a lovely relaxed environment. I will definitely be returning to have a go at another course. Thank you.

I highly recommend this workshop as I came away with a piece of finished stained glass, having learnt lots of new skills. It is an intensive day, in a relaxed supportive atmosphere with demonstrations and then lots of one to one tuition as needed. There was no pressure to rush and we were encouraged all the way.
It was a small group and the room is a pleasant environment to work in with all the equipment and materials on hand.
Thanks very much.

A lovely day out! 6 of us took a bespoke Tiffany course and everyone was pleased with the work they did. I definitely recommend taking these classes, the tutors are excellent.

Martin runs a great course in various forms of stained glass, very therapeutic, with a chance to make lovely pieces and use the wonderful medium of glass. Count me in again for the next course Martin!! I will be busy over the summer thinking about all the projects in September .

I have really enjoyed my first foray into stained glass making. Martin is an excellent teacher and very patient. It is very therapeutic and I will miss the classes over the summer break. I look forward to returning in September .

It would be hard to find fault with Martin, his teaching or the whole workshop set up he has created. It's just great getting to the class each week and leaving all other stuff behind. During the session Martin is always around to offer help and guidance - but also knows when to leave us along to get on with our own projects.

This one day traditional stained glass course is excellent. I have tried fused glass, but have always wanted to try stained glass and this was thoroughly enjoyable. The workshop is big enough to accommodate 12 people comfortably - although 8 was our number - and all materials and tools are provided. It is full on concentration and help is always at hand if you struggle with any of the stages.
Today we had Kate as our tutor as Martin was with family on a much needed day off and she was very good at explaining what to do and why. I will consider doing either more workshops or a longer course or even trying the other courses available. I'm very pleased with how my piece turned out, just need to decide where to hang it. I would highly recommend these courses. Thank you.

I had always wanted to have a go at making a stained glass panel and I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed. Kate, our tutor, was totally lovely, patient and very supportive of all members of the group. All materials were set out in our own workspaces beforehand and she clearly explained each stage of the process so we all knew the appropriate tools and techniques to use. Everyone was encouraged to work at their own pace and we all ended up with beautiful pieces to take home. A lovely atmosphere and a fabulous experience. Thanks!!

I really look forward to my Wednesday morning class. It is something completely different to anything I’ve done previously. I have found some parts a little challenging but Martin has been a brilliant tutor with so many helpful tips and ideas and so very much patience! He is very approachable even when I keep needing a reminder of how to do certain things for the hundredth time !
The workshop is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It’s a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere with all levels of ability. Martin and the other students are so encouraging and never judgemental. We have a real good laugh too.
The classes are very well organised and run well which creates a very relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere.
I would highly recommend Martin’s classes.

All of Martin's glass courses are excellent. Stained glass, glass fusing and fired glass painting.
Friendly atmosphere in very well equipped workshop, with excellent tuition.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day on the traditional stained glass course and would highly recommend it. Martin gave clear instruction and encouragement which allowed everyone to practise each stage and produce a lovely piece of stained glass to take home. The course was well paced but didn't seem rushed.

Spent a great day yesterday with a superb teacher (Martin). The course managed to cater really well for a wide range of abilities and previous knowledge as well as experience of working with glass. Martin is clearly very skillful at his craft and is an excellent teacher. He paced the day well, demonstrating every step and allowing everyone time to practice before moving on. He was constantly there for support and advice whilst still allowing us to learn at our own pace. We all came away with a well made piece of stained glass.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day, learnt a great deal and would without reservation recommend this course for anyone wanting an introduction to the lovely craft of Stained Glass making.

I have just started doing stained glass for the first time this term and have really enjoyed these classes.The first two projects were carefully thought out to include many of the skills required to work with glass.
Now I hopefully have acquired these techniques I will be able to become a bit adventurous in what I make.
