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.

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

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!
Bought as a present after hearing about it from another friend at work . Easy to order , super fast delivery . Can’t wait to see the completed piece!
Have just spent a great day with Natalie and Paul making glass jewellery. They were great, very friendly and welcoming also both very knowledgeable and creative. Started the morning by learning the basic glass cutting techniques with Paul. The oil filled cutter was a revelation! Then Natalie helped me to make some bespoke glass jewellery which I can’t wait to pick up after it has been in the kiln. Would definitely recommend this course as it is fun, creative and such a lovely way to spend a day totally absorbed in craft. I also thought that the course was excellent value as I made two pendants and three pairs of earrings plus had lunch and gallons of coffee! Check out the glass kits that you can buy from them too. Having seen them for real, if you can’t get to a course they provide a way to make something beautiful at home and good value too!
The fused glass star kit came to me as a gift. Decorating the star in the beautiful beads was very therapeutic and once returned from the firing process the fused star looks beautiful and really catches the light. It was beautifullly packaged with simple instructions and any unused products could be returned with the star when it was sent back for firing, so fulfilling my desire to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
Really enjoyed this course with Paul. He is a good teacher with lots of experience and passion for stained glass.I proudly came away with a lovely leaded panel and a desire to take up this up as a hobby.Dont hesitate to book the course!
My two teenage daughters and I had an excellent day learning how to cut glass without cutting ourselves, and making some beautiful creations between us.
Paul was patient and attentive, full of creative ideas to facilitate the pictures we wanted to create, and pulling all sorts of exciting glass out for us to experiment with. We can't wait to receive the finished product once they've gone in the kiln.
I can honestly say that it was money very well spent. The biggest challenge now is saving the pennies to buy my own kiln, to start my new hobby!
(Also, very happy with Covid safety ... Very well thought out and delivered. We wore masks all day, socially distanced during teaching, and had plenty of hand gel and paper towels. We also had our own tools to use throughout the day.)
Thank you also for the simple but yummy lunch, and endless supply of beverages and biscuits!
Top notch! What a brilliant day filled with creativity and fuelled with cups of tea. (Thanks Paul.) I can't recommend this course enough - I'm thrilled with what was achieved in the day 🤩👌😁
Absolutely brilliant day with Paul. Very enjoyable, very interesting, very therapeutic! Paul was very knowledgable and patient and could not do enough to help us throughout the day. A great way to celebrate our mums 70th. Would definitely do this again or perhaps the stained glass workshop next time.
