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.

We had a great day learning some new skills. Kate was very patient with us and an excellent teacher. There was an excellent choice of glass for the design, and were really pleased with the panels we made to take home.
Would highly recommend.

Still loving Martin's class. He is always encouraging and nothing seems too much trouble, nothing fazes him and he appreciates each person's work and helps us all make the most of our time at the class.
I really look forward to Monday mornings!

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Kate who was leading the workshop was really helpful and patient. Obviously knows her craft very well and made the day a very enjoyable experience which would definately try again. Whilst a long day it flies by but slept well that night

Had an amazing time and we'll worth the travel. I found it a creative and inspiring course and can't wait to do another one.

Another fantastic workshop - this time stained glass with Kate.
Kate was an excellent teacher and explained everything clearly and made sure we were all understanding what stage we were on in creating our piece of stained glass...... from cutting and grinding the glass, cutting the lead and soldering (which was an experience! (: ) - all done in a friendly, relaxed environment with a wonderful group. Although it was a full-on-day you never felt rushed but I did sleep well (:
Thank you once again Kate for a great day. I will definitely be looking to book my next workshop or course.

Really enjoyed the day and great to go home with a finished piece of work.
Kate is a good, friendly and encouraging teacher.
We'd not hesitate to recommend the course and may well be back for more.

Really enjoyable day. Clear concise instruction, help when needed but never intrusive. I got so much done in the time and immediately booked a second day (which was just as enjoyable). Very happy with the results and would highly recommend it to anyone of any artistic level.

Got bought a gift voucher to go on the one day fused glass course and I loved it! All the equipment was organised and available, Martin was patient and knowledgeable and created a relaxed atmosphere to get creative right from the start. Would recommend to anyone!

Such a great course, clear demonstrations, as much help and advice as personally needed.
Extremely well equipped studio. All in all a satisfying and enjoyable day with good results at the end of it.

Another interesting and inspiring day painting on glass with Martin's guidance .How can a full day go so fast! More of the same please !count me in!

I'm hooked. I thoroughly enjoyed this well prepared workshop. Martin gave simple clear instructions enabling us to get to grips with the techniques, we then had the opportunity to develop our own ideas. The day wizzed by, it was full of creativity, focus, information and good company, oh and cake.

I had a great time on the course, I felt a bit out of my depth at times but Kate was brilliant - really patient and helpful, and I'm still amazed that I managed to finish a picture over the course of the day (the time went very quickly)! There was a lot to take in but it was really interesting and enjoyable.
