"We attended the one day introduction course as a Birthday present for my partner. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Jamal, the tutor, was very informative about the history of stain glass and spoke about his years of working in stain glass. We came away from the course with own panel of stain glass, thanks to help and patience of a very good tutor. When you do this course, take a look at the marvelous work he has on his studio walls!"

"I cannot recommend the one day stained glass leading course enough. Jamal was an incredible host. He introduced us to the history of stained glass, his experiences during his career in the field and went on to explain the techniques involved. We chose designs that he supplied or ones that we had prepared, and proceeded with the glass cutting initially. Jamal was fantastically attentive to all 3 of us, helping out regularly when required. The lead cutting, assembly, soldering and putty filling all followed quickly. Suddenly we each had a beautiful stained glass panel, enhanced finally with brushing and polishing. This was an incredible course packed with content by an experienced instructor who communicated in an interesting and relaxed manner. The practical side was well explained and organised and we all ended up with something to proudly take home."

"My sister and I did the 2 day course where we learned to paint, cut and lead glass with Jamal, whilst learning a bit about the famous Hardman Victorian glass studio where Jamal previously worked. It was a wonderful experience watching our panels gradually form in his tiny workshop. He was endlessly patient. Don’t worry if you can’t draw as of course you trace the picture through the glass and he has lots of beautiful old designs to use or inspire. Thankyou"

"Jamal's one day Stained Glass and Leading course was absolutely fantastic. I've always had an interest in stained glass. It was a really informative course and I found it incredibly interesting. Jamal is incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and patient. I was part of a course with two other people. The practical elements of the course were great. I learned all of the steps involved in producing a piece of stained glass and had a lovely little product I'd made over the course of the day to take home and display. I'd highly recommend the course. A fantastic experience if you have an interest in this area or just want to try something new. I had an interest without ever having had a go at it. I'm glad I did!"

"What a splendid course !!!! I learnt glass cutting and leading skills from a gifted artist with a wealth of knowledge & experience. I feel I now have the ability to try my own project knowing what I need, where to get it from, and where I can get support if needed. The course also meant that I left with a leaded, stained glass sample, crafted by my own hands. Thank you very much. Duncan"

" Thank you very much Duncan"

"Recently took the 2 day leading course with Jamal. Really nice setup, just a couple of other students in his wonderful studio. We learned some interesting history and got to learn from a really enthusiastic, patient, professional and friendly working artist. The course is well paced and if you've never done any leading work before then this course is ideal. Jamal offered some fantastic tips and his seeing some of work is quite inspiring. Jamal is a fantastic find and I'd highly recommend him. Very talented artist and learned some great new techniques from a traditional stained glass artisan. The course was excellent value for money and you can just turn up as everything was included. Thanks Jamal."

Julian reviewed: Stained glass leading for beginners - Birmingham at Stained Glassic

"After a search around for stained glass courses I found Jamal's on here. A choice between 1, 2, 3 and 4 day long courses, so I went for the 4 day one. I'm glad I did. I learnt a lot in those four days, enough to be able to create a stained glass panel, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The pace suited me, Jamal is very easy to listen to and demonstrates the various techniques well. I'd never tried stained glass before and was a little nervous beforehand but once there that went and the time flew by. I'd recommend his courses to anyone who wants to try something new or even refresh their skills."

Stained Glassic responded:

" Thanks very much Julian!!!"

Ralph Aarken reviewed: Stained glass leading for beginners - Birmingham at Stained Glassic

"Great 4 day course with Jamal. Many craft courses intend much and never achieve a finished article.... Jamal has simplified the process so you can take away a finished piece at the end of 4 days AND learn all the basics of how to cut, paint and lead-up stained glass. Thoroughly recommend his tuition and course."

Stained Glassic responded:

" Thanks very much!!!"

"Just come back from a four-day workshop with Jamal, so glad now that I chose this over the one day course! Jamal took us through the process, step by step with useful hints as we went along. The course had the option of working on my own project or using a premade design, and Jamal was on hand to give advice on how to develop the piece when needed. Really enjoyed the week and would recommend it for both beginners and ‘experts’."

Stained Glassic responded:

" Thanks very much!!!"

"Fabulous one day stained glass leading course with Jamal. He started the workshop by giving us a fascinating brief insight into his background and stained glass. He then explained the various steps involved in creating a stained glass panel after which we chose a design to make for ourselves. Jamal demonstrated each step as we were ready to do it and was always close to hand if help was needed. He is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher and his skill is inspirational. Would love to go back and do some glass painting. I wholeheartedly recommend this course. Thanks so much for a great day Jamal."

"I had never worked with lead before. Jamal gave us a fascinating brief history of his experience (he does amazing stained glass work that is now on cruise ships, in cathedrals and in homes around the world), and then he demonstrated techniques step by step, so we were able to make our own bit of leaded glass. I now have the confidence to make a really big panel (I will aim for 39 inches by 52 inches) for our home."

Jacqui reviewed: Stained glass leading for beginners - Birmingham at Stained Glassic

"My friend and I had a really fun couple of days with Jamal in his home based workspace. We learned a little of his training and the process of stained glass window creation... then we got really hands on; choosing glass, cutting, leading and soldering all under Jamal expert easy going tuition. We had a laugh, got creative and produced wonderful little pieces that I’m so proud of it’s hanging in my conservatory catching the light. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but we were made very welcome, educated and entertained, and it was wonderful to learn from such a talented artist. Highly recommended."
