"I attended two of Gigha well run courses, drift wood and making seagulls workshops.
Both were fun, but run with care and attention to detail, care taken at all time with health and saftey, and reminding you when things are hot or you need to be aware. The workshop itself is full of glassy goodness, so bring pennies as youll want to buy her beautiful creations x
All tools were there for all to use, and plentyfull too. Everything we needed, and no shortage of colours to choose from.
Dinner was fantastic! Jacket potato and yummy salad.
I attended both classes myself, and didnt feel at all left out, and had a really fun day both times, and ill be going back too x"
"I was a complete novice, but Gigha put me at ease. Her passion and enthusiasm was catching! She was very patient and attentive. The workshop was a lovely space to work in and as this was early December there was a festive feel! I came away with some lovely Christmasy light catchers. I will definitely be booking to attend another course."
"What a fantastic day! I booked the drift wood stained glass creation course with a friend. Gigha made me feel welcome and at ease. Gigha is an excellent teacher, she explained each stage well, and was on hand when needed. I will be booking again soon."
"Christmas decorations 15th December workshop. This is my fourth visit to Gigha's workshop and once again thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Gigha is an excellent tutor and always very patient and knowledgeable.
We all had an excellent time in a warm and relaxed atmosphere, lots of Christmas goodies to eat throughout the day also a lovely lunch.
Came away with four decorations I will treasure.
Thank you Gigha."
"I had a fab day making a driftwood sea scene. Relaxed atmosphere with great music and very good tuition. Gigha is calm, precise with instructions and has a good sense of humour. She managed a fairly large group all doing different projects, with varying levels of ability very well. I will definitely be doing another course."
"We have now completed 2 of Gigha's workshops firstly the mobiles and secondly the Christmas workshop. Both were excellent. Gigha is a very good and patient tutor and she makes it a fun day. Can't recommend it enough. Can't wait to do more."
"Another fantastic day at Gigha's glass workshop. This time we did the Xmas Decoration workshop, came away with 5 lovely individual tree decs. The workshop was lovely & warm & filled with Gigha's amazing artistic creations. Gigha is an excellent teacher, patient & very informative. Will definitely be going back for more."
"We attended the 1 day Christmas tree hanging course. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to try a new course. Ginga is a very good teacher she has great patience and is very helpful with advice. A lunch was provided with refreshments available all day. I was very pleased with what I made."
"I recently attended the Christmas Tree Decoration day course. Gigha is a great instructor, very clear and very helpful. Her studio is lovely with plenty of ideas and materials to choose from and we could make as many decorations as we wished.
Refreshments are available all day and a lovely lunch is included.
I highly recommend trying a course. I will definitely be booking another soon."
"I attended the course to make xmas decorations this was something I had never done before and I was a bit apprehensive but I throughly enjoyed the day .It was a very relaxed day and I found Ghiga was an excellent teacher with lots of patients . Had a lovely lunch Included and went home with 6 lovely Xmas tree decorations. I would highly recommend the course."
"Had a great day making Christmas decorations, Gigha is very patient and no shortage of choice of things to make. Very good value taking into consideration it is a full day with lunch included, and you take home the pieces you make. Loved it!"
"I have been to several of Gigha’s stained glass workshops I absolutely love every minute.I did the Christmas decorations last week, Gigha is so patient and we all had such a lovely day.I recommend it to anyone that would like to learn a new skill. We were all so involved in our creations, that we found it difficult to stop for our lovely lunch, which was also included. I will be returning for more, can’t wait!!"
"Absolutely brilliant! A wonderfully productive day learning new skills and discovering new crafts. With two Angel Tealight holders made and a beautiful Christmas decoration too I am thrilled at the value for money, and we got lunch and cake! I will be back."
"What a fabulous day! A treat to be in a creative environment with an awesome experienced and patient teacher. And to come home with 2 pieces finished that I don't mind giving house room to at all is a total bonus - brilliant value for money, interesting, stimulating, thoroughly enjoyable all round. Thanks Gigha!"
"I just had a wonderful day on a stained glass and driftwood workshop with Gigha. the room was full of inspiration and Gigha was an excellent and enthusiastic teacher. we all got stuck in straight away and Gigha was on hand for any help or support required. She laid on a super lunch but we were all so engrossed it was hard for her to tear us away!
I would happily recommend her workshop and I will certainly be enrolling on another one."
"I had never done any stained glass work before so was amazed at what I managed to achieve on the day. My driftwood and stained glass piece has a pride of place catching the light in my window. Gigha is a fab teacher and the course is relaxed and well taught. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and can't wait to do some more glass work. I have already enrolled in some studio night sessions. Sue"
"My friend & I went on a copperfoil workshop & totall loved it all. Gigha was a really excellent tutor, her demonstrations were clear & easy to understand. She gave individual demonstrations if you needed extra guidance. We had never done any glass cutting before & it is so pleasing once you get the hang of it. We would thoroughly recommend Gigha's workshops. There were plenty of patterns & loads of glass & embellishments to choose from or you could choose to make your own design.
We could help ourselves to tea, coffee & biscuits all day long & were given a lovely lunch of baked potatoes with cheese/ham/baked beans & salad, plus cakes and fruit to follow. Can't wait to try some leaded panels ;-)"
"My friend and I had an excellent day making stained glass in Gigha's well equipped studio. Gigha is a brilliant teacher, and always takes time to explain and demonstrate each step. Very relaxed environment and thoroughly enjoyable day, with lunch included and teas available all day."
"Thanks for such a wonderful workshop, we had a great time and it truly exceeded our expectations. You put in so much effort and we thank you for your patience. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your classes."
"Gigha is an excellent teacher and explained and demonstrated the different techniques very well.
I would thoroughly recommend the course and I'm really looking forward to attending another course very soon."
"We really enjoyed the workshop. My mum and I were able to learn at our own pace so it was a very welcome and relaxed day off for me and outing for my mum. Gigha's studio is well-equipped and she has everything you could possible want. She is so kind and patient, even when mum kept getting the pliers upside down! Thanks very much. Can't wait to try another one."
"What a fabulous day we had. I booked a private family day for us to learn how to make stain glass sun catchers. Even though we were all beginners, we learned surprisingly quickly under Gigha's tuition and we all were very impressed at what we managed to produce.
The day began with a safety talk and then a glass cutting demonstration. Lunch and endless tea and biscuits were provided and also cakes. The whole day was relaxed and so much fun we want to book for fusing very soon. We'll be back.
Thank you so much."
"I did the one day suncatcher course yesterday and can't rate it highly enough. Lots of workspace in a lovely workshop, plenty of good kit, relaxed atmosphere, great tuition whatever your ability - it's a total escape from the world for a day."
