"Great workshop again from Martin, making fused glass is good fun and whatever your skill level you will be able to make some lovely pieces. Martin is a great teacher and gives good clear instruction and lots of support during the course. A lovely day and would recommend if you fancy having a go, this was my 4th fused glass workshop with Martin."

"Having done the Stained Glass Workshop previously, I tried my hand at the Fused Glass 1-day workshop with Martin, and once again enjoyed myself immensely! Martin is a patient and encouraging tutor. The classes are set at the perfect pace to learn but still get a lot done. Fantastic experience once again, I will be back. "

Joy Keywood reviewed: Stained glass weekly classes in Sheffield (South Yorkshire)

"Having attended 3 terms I would highly recommend Martin's classes. They are affordable, supportive and friendly. Martin has taught me so many new skills and given me the confidence to create large and small pieces of stained glass, both in lead and Tiffany, independently. These classes have been life changing for me, more like therapy, and have given me a whole new craft to lose myself in and something that I never realised I was capable of. Thank you Martin."

Martin McAssey Glass responded:

"Thank you for the lovely review."

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

"Update 2024: Another weekly stained glass course completed successfully, and I am very pleased with the Art Deco Tiffany lightshade that I made this time. The course has allowed me to build solidly on the skills that I learned in previous courses. This project involved a lot of pieces of glass and it really made me realise how these courses have helped me grow my glass cutting skills. Kate and Martin are excellent tutors and are always approachable for any questions during classes. On the Friday afternoon courses, even if not asked, Kate regularly checks on students progress. In this way she caught a (somewhat basic!) mistake that I was about to make when soldering my latest work :-) The atmosphere in the classes is always friendly, industrious and creative. It is great to see and be inspired by the other students work, gain tips and bounce ideas around. I was especially pleased on this course with the steady introduction of the new improved glass grinders, illustrating that Martin is always investing in his workshops with the latest kit to ensure efficient and up to date skills learning. I would gladly recommend anyone to give learning stained glass at Martin McAsseys workshop a try. "

Martin McAssey Glass responded:

"Thank you for the great review."

Gillian Hogan reviewed: Tiffany stained glass wild flowers workshop

"Great day learning how to make these lovely flowers. This is the 3rd workshop day I've been on, the others being Painting on Glass and Scrap glass mosaic stepping stone. Both Kate and Martin were clear in their instructions and would repeat and show as many times as necessary. Very encouraging and calming when I thought I would never get things finished. Came home with some fantastic glass art. Now to choose my next glass workshop :-)"

Dodie Rutherford reviewed: Stained glass weekly classes in Sheffield (South Yorkshire)

"I have been fortunate in being able to join Martin’s weekly course for the last two and a half years. He has taught me through introductory phase, mastering basic skills then on to more demanding work which have been really pleasing. He is great at helping through the tricky bits then recognising when you can cope and run with the piece. The day courses have been great at giving new experiences in glass work. Great all round. "

"Thank you for the lovely review."

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

"I have just completed my third 10 week course and have enjoyed every single session. Martin is an amazing tutor. In the first course he guided me through all the steps in a very clear and concise way - spending a good amount of time demonstrating and checking up on progress. In the following courses Martin is always on hand to provide guidance and reminders of the steps, as needed. The workshop is well stocked and a great environment for working in. Really enjoying the craft - would highly recommend."

"Thank you for the great review."

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

"I have completed Martin’s Tiffany and leaded glass course - I love it and hooked. Martin is an excellent and encouraging teacher. Initially you make two small sample pieces one in Tiffany then leaded, then you can start creating your own. I have also done a one day flower making course with Kate. She is also fantastic. Everyone created a gorgeous bouquet of forever glass flowers. I find working in this space very therapeutic and meditative. I’m also meeting some lovely people along the way. I would absolutely recommend this as an activity. "

Martin McAssey Glass responded:

"Thank you for the lovely review, I look forward to seeing you both again next term."

Kate, our tutor made learning a new craft hugely enjoyable, pacing the teaching well, providing loads of nuances and top-tips to ensure success and encouraging and instructing the small group with immense skill and good humour. We were all delighted with our completed panels and would love to learn more. Thank you for allowing us to use the most beautiful glass in our makes."
