My 3rd fused glass class with Martin, and as enjoyable as ever; clear instructions and advice as needed. A great way to spend a Saturday!

Really pleased I attended the fused glass course, Martin gave really clear instructions for us to make many Christmas decorations. A lot was packed into the course with several different decorations to make, everyone could work at their own pace and the whole day was really enjoyable.

My second day course with Martin, first with fused glass. We made a lot of Christmas decorations, which was unexpected. Easy to follow instructions and ideas. Feeling more confident to try more complex patterns now. A great day.

I had taken part in Martin's stained glass courses some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them. Fused glass seemed a slightly different course to try. I was bought it as a Christmas present and really enjoyed attending Martin's new premises. It is well equipped, plenty of space, everything you want to complete the tasks and a very relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of drinks available all day and cakes supplied by Martin at lunchtime!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend any of Martin's courses. He is an excellent tutor. Thank you

Had a great time making Christmas decorations with Martin! We all managed to make a lot more items than we'd perhaps imagined before the course. I'd never done any glass workshops before, but Martin explained all the basics needed to get started and was always there to help if any of us got stuck. There was also a steady supply of tea, coffee and even some sweets and mince pies. Already planning to go back to do one of the Traditional Stained Glass or Tiffany Stained Glass workshops!

As a complete beginner to working with glass I thought the course was relaxed (deceptively so, as we made lots of Xmas decs ), interesting and very informative ! Lots of encouragement and help from Martin !
The hamlet looks interesting and on a nice day I’m sure would be worth a wander round with a nice cafe and toilets.
Seriously considering enrolling for the 10 wk course.

I attended the one day traditional stained glass workshop with Kate, and it was fantastic! Kate explained all the techniques really clearly and was patient and helpful with all the students. I really enjoyed the day and am very pleased with the panel I made. I hope to be back again soon!

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. The instructions were very clear and we had good fun. Pleased with my finished product. Thanks.

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.

I appreciate Martin’s patience and ability to increase one's confidence in developing skills beyond personal expectations. I enjoy the classes and want to learn more.

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!!
