Had such a super day with Paul and Natalie and would thoroughly recommend this one day fused glass course. We were in a lovely setting in rural North Norfolk (and were provided with excellent instructions on how to find the venue) and the workspace was set out well with plenty of space for the three of us attending the course.
The day started with Paul teaching us about the different types of glass and how to cut glass safely and properly starting with straight cuts and moving on to curved cuts which we were able to practice to ensure we felt comfortable with this. We then worked with Natalie to explore all the types of glass further and to design our own fused glass item. I am delighted with what I achieved and am looking forward to returning in the future to do another course. I would highly recommend this course.
Highly recommended; Paul is a great teacher, his teaching skills were impressive and Natalie is a great fantastic designer with such beautiful ideas; I enjoyed the workshop very much, it was my first experience working with glass and cannot believe to have produced a beautiful outcome. The course is held in a beautiful and calm atmosphere, lunch was so yummy and beautiful served. All in all, I had a very beautiful day and I definitely want to come back! Thank you so much Natalie and Paul for a great experience, for all the knowledge you shared and for just giving us an amazing day, with lots of love, Petra from St Ives, Cambridgeshire xx
We did the 2-day stained glass window course & thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing from start to finish. Paul explained everything so well & imparted his knowledge to us so that we could really engage with the process & execute each step with confidence. Paul was patient & encouraging, only stepping in if we asked for assistance, apart from when he absolutely had to do the polishing! We were pleased to each be able to take home a finished panel which were immediately put on display. If you have been considering learning how to do stained glass we would highly recommend this course.
Thank you Paul, & also thank you Natalie for the lunches.
Spectacular service. Easy to order, quickly delivered, beautifully packaged with fabulous contents (nice little details such as return labels and stamps).
We had a great time completing the project and can't wait to receive our fused glass!!
Thank you so much, we will certainly order again.
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Lindsay,
This is a fun piece to make and I really enjoyed it. The kit is wonderfully packaged and the instructions were super clear which I was relieved to see as for my level of experience it was the most detailed piece I had worked on. I was thrilled when it was returned after firing as it looked so good and Natalie at #northnorfolkstainedglass kindly included a note in the package to say that it looked lovely. I would highly recommend ordering a kit from #northnorfolkstainedglass as it contains everything you need to make a beautiful piece that you will treasure.
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Penny,
Would recommend Paul and Natalie.They are both very skilled and excellent teachers.Natalie helped me to design and create a fused glass piece and also taught me how to use a stick cutter properly( at last !!).We discussed pattern making and cutting and Paul showed me what sort of kiln to buy.
They are both amazingly helpful .Excellent day!
I had fun making my piece of fused glass I thought the kit was well packed, had everything I needed to make the hanging. Speedy delivery both times. I like the end result, looks pretty in the window. Highly recommend.
Many thanks. Linda
We had a fabulous relaxed two days with Paul, Natalie and Grace. Idyllic surroundings, lovely food, great conversation and brilliant teaching. And let’s not forget the chance to meet little Gracie. We could not have enjoyed it more, many thanks.
A very enjoyable and informative experience. The two day course has inspired me to take stained glass making up as a serious hobby. From the outset Paul led us through every stage with meticulous attention to detail, only getting involved when necessary. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. And the tea was great.
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Kevin - thank you for your feedback!
Absolutely brilliant! If you are looking at this course just do it. Fantastic value for money, Paul and Natalie are so friendly, welcoming and awesome teachers. Paul was so patient with us, and Natalie really helped find ways to bring more to what we were creating and couldn’t have been more helpful. I bought this as a gift for my mum and sister (along with myself!) and couldn’t have been a better day. Left having learnt something and really wanting to do more of it!!
Couldn’t find fault if I tried - lunch and refreshments were brilliant, gorgeous setting, just perfect. You’ll leave feeling really proud of what you create, and have had a great day.
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Jo 😊
It was a breath of fresh air to be able to be crafty again after such a long time in lockdown. I have been to many many workshops of various fashion but Natalie’s was the best with no exaggeration. She allowed me to put my own spin on my creations as I ended up making jewellery. I had plenty of time and was suggested rather than told what to do. She and Paul have a lovely workshop and are very kind hosts. I highly recommend!
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Thank you for this lovely review Alina!
I did the 2-day stained glass window course. There was just 2 on the course so got lots of one-on-one tuition. This course is excellent and I really enjoyed it. I was amazed that I was able to make a complete stained glass unit after just 2 days :)
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hi Adrian 😊
I bought this for my sister-in-law’s birthday and she was thrilled!! Natalie was so helpful
Thank you so much
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Helen 😊
I had the most fantastic time today with Natalie, who is incredibly talented and inspiring. I would give this 6 stars instead of 5 if I could! The setting, the guidance, the whole experience is second to none. I almost want to keep this course as a secret as it is such a fantastic find, but genuinely this wonderful workshop should be shared. I also got to see the kits that you can make at home and was blown away by the content, care and attention to detail. They will make beautiful gifts for anyone, or even just to treat yourself to something. I literally cannot recommend this enough. Thank you to Natalie, and your beautiful family, for making today a truly fabulous day!
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Melissa 😊
I absolutely loved this project a really enjoyable and relaxing weekend in a very happy place. Natalie was really helpful and from sending my finished item to her for firing to receiving it back wasn't much more than about a week. Natalie had included some lovely comments too. The kit had plenty of glass to complete the project and allow for you to design your own wave, was well packed and the directions were very thorough and easy to understand. Thank you so much Natalie I will be buying more soon xx
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Tara!
Had a brilliant day making a fused glass panel with Paul and Natalie. They were friendly, patient and the course was lots of fun! Well worth trying if you want to have a crafty day doing something creative. I was up here on a weeks holiday and decided to do a couple of craft courses at the last minute. Natalie was very helpful and accommodating and I am so glad I was able to try glass fusing. Excellent value for money too! Would highly recommend
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Lisa,
Loved making this and how it turned out. Natalie is lovely. Will be ordering more kits xx
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Kate!
I really enjoyed completing my piece of glass art. I have not done this kind of art before but it was a gift to complete from a family member and looks good displayed in my home.
Thank you for the speedy return.
2 kits arrived securely packaged and we had a lovely afternoon setting out our waves. Everything we needed was included and we thoroughly enjoyed making them. Couldn’t wait to see the end result after sending them back for fusing. We were not disappointed, they were both beautiful, although quite different. I would not hesitate to order more kits for home crafting from Natalie, the whole system works really well for doing at home.
Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:Hello Jennifer - thank you for your fantastic feedback! I’m so pleased you enjoyed working with the kits and you are both happy with your makes! You both did a lovely job of them!
