Great working area with individual benches and all equipment supplied plus expert ands hands on instruction and guidance from Martin. It’s been a tremendous experience and highly recommended for all ages. Thanks you.
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.
The course was quite outside my zone of experience, it was tough day concentration needed through the day and was exactly what I was looking for. The other attendees were good mixers and produced various pieces of work. I think the course could have worked better over 2 days for my standard of work, but other did finish well within time.Kate Billington ran the course kept us on our toes would like to go back on another, well done everyone.
I attended Martins fused glass course with my mum, we both really enjoyed ourselves and can not wait to see the finished pieces once they have been fired.
Martin is an excellent glass worker and teacher. We have both learned new skills on this course.
I would highly recommend the course, I know I will be attending other glass courses run by Martin.
My first experience of working with such a variety of fused glass materials. A well formulated course, no pressures, excellent tuition and so interesting. After doing stained glass in Martins’s excellent courses previously, I was amazed at the results over a one day course. So many different materials. I can’t wait to see the fired results. Would thoroughly recommend this Day course, no previous experience necessary.
Exactly as advertised A fun day providing an introduction to the techniques involved in the creation of fused glass pieces. Martin is an excellent teacher and also makes a good cup of tea!! I look forward to seeing the coasters, bowl and sun catcher in due course.
Well appointed and safely organised workshop, good car parking and great little cafe.
Martin is a very good tutor, deceptively relaxed as we actually worked hard!
Would love to sign up again. Any chance of bowls/shaped (slumped) panels day? Glass casting?
Thank you Martin.
Fused glass Christmas decoration workshop. This was a thoroughly enjoyable day. I couldn’t wait to collect my glass, and I wasn’t disappointed, would definitely recommend!
