Jenny and Mike were both very welcoming and patient when I was struggling with a technique or understanding information they were imparting. The two days gave time to try new techniques and I learnt a lot from this course. I would happily book another course with them in the future. This two day course was bought as an early 60th birthday present from my husband and what a fabulous present it was.
Thank you Jenny and Mike for an interesting and enjoyable two days.
Response from Vitreus Art:Thanks for your review Nicky - it was a pleasure working with you and hope to see you at the studio again sometime.
The course was all that I hoped for and more. The pace was good allowing plenty of time to practice new skills and the tutor was always on hand to guide you as required. We were well looked after during the day with both drinks and lunch. This was a really good introduction to making a stain glass panel and everyone was able to take a finished product home with them.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Jane - it was a pleasure working with you!
I enjoyed the course. The first time I did stain glass was in high school. It was 40 years ago. But Mike brought a new meaning to stained glass, he provided a little history of the origin of glass and an interest in Tiffany’s glass. The new meaning of stained glass course was very challenging. I chose a pattern that involved 13 pieces. I thought it was quite easy to do with straight lines and triangles and squares. Mike and Jenny were both patient and supportive, they were patient and guided me through it all. I would not of completed in one day but got a lot of help and Mike and Jenny encouraged me to continue and complete the project. I did it and love the piece.
Response from Vitreus Art:Thanks for your review Christine, we’re glad you like huge finished piece!
Really enjoyable day. Very well looked after by the team and Clare an excellent teacher. Learnt lots of new techniques and plenty of time to practice.
Thank you all.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Sue - Clare certainly is an excellent teacher!
A thoroughly enjoyable day. We did exactly as described bar eating our lunch in the workshop rather than at the nearby tearooms! At the end of a very long day we did all go home with items of which we were all justifiably proud and could legitimately say we pretty well did it all!
We were encouraged to proceed and complete and both Mike & Jenny would encourage us to do, make mistakes and learn! They were very patient and prepared to repeat whatever was required to get to the end! As we all exceeded the course time, they still did not try to take over to speed the proceedings and I would like to thank them for their diligence. I would certainly recommend giving this course or any of the others a go if you fancy it!
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Jenny - we’re pleased you enjoyed the workshop!
Excellent value for money. Busy all day and kept well supplied with drinks and treats by Jenny. Mike's tuition was clear and the small class size meant that he was always available to help.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Hilary - it was a pleasure to teach you (and the rest of the group).
The course was very well packaged from booking through to completion. I was made very welcome on the day. The course was thorough and left me with the confidence to be autonomous and develop my skill independently in the future. I would happily recommend this course to anyone interested.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Tim - we're glad you enjoyed making your stained glass panel!
My Husband and I had a really good day learning about stained glass. The course was enjoyable and well organized/run. Neither of us had worked with stained glass before so it was a very interesting day. Mike and Jenny are very friendly and helpful. There was a good supply of Tea/Coffee and biscuits plus the lunch menu and food was lovely. Thank you.
Response from Vitreus Art:Thanks for your review Janice - we 're pleased you both enjoyed it!
Myself and my husband John attended a full day workshop (10 hours) creating a leaded glass panel and acquiring new skills on both glass leading and using tools relevant to complete a project. We are really proud of our end works and are now hanging in the garden. We were total beginners and impressed with the professionalism of the tutors' training style, knowledgeable and patience during the whole day. Fantastic tutors who are an asset to the art world. Thank you so much for all your help.
Response from Vitreus Art:Thanks for your review Mandy - it was a pleasure working with you both!
Mike and Jenny were very welcome and attentive throughout the day. Mike was clear with all his step by step instructions and Jenny efficiently served plenty of refreshments and also offered her knowledge to the group.
I would certainly go back to them to try some of the other courses that they offer.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Brenda - it was a pleasure working with you.
As a beginner to copper foiling I was amazed at the piece I made and took home. Mike is an excellent teacher and his demonstrations of the various techniques were easy to follow and he answered our quesitons as he went along. He was happy to re-cap a tecnique and encouraged you to beleive in yourself. The course was informative and fun with several paterns to choose from. Jenny also provided guidance and support through the day and the small group allowed plenty of interaction with them both. I had a great day learning a new craft . I recommend the course and will be booking another course with them soon.
Response from Vitreus Art:Many thanks for your review Gilly, it was a pleasure teaching you.
Mike and Jenny's garden panel workshop was the first of many classes I've taken with them. They are great teachers delivering step by step tutorials with individual support and guidance as required. Tea and biscuits are always in plentiful supply and the background music sets the mood for a most enjoyable, creative time.
Response from Vitreus Art:Great to hear you enjoy the music Sue. Looking forward to seeing what you create in the studio next time.
I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband and I to do together. Neither of us had worked with stained glass before, but the support and tuition received meant we came away with pieces we were really proud of.
Mike and Jenny are great fun to work with and are always very welcoming, keeping you well supplied with tea/coffee and biscuits all day and provide a great lunch at the cafe next door.
Response from Vitreus Art:Hi Brooke,
Leaded Garden Panel Workshop - did this workshop on a really hot day last summer. It was just brilliant with lots of one to one instruction, help with colours and unlimited tuition and patience. Am so pleased with the finished panel and love the way it catches the light in the late afternoon sun. Will certainly be signing up for more classes in 2020. Bring it on!!
Response from Vitreus Art:Hello Libby, It was great working with you then, and since. And looking forward to the next creation you make under our guidance. Best regards,
Thoroughly enjoyed the day, went so quickly despite staying late to finish my panel. Very clear instruction from Jenny and Mike, and well timed help when I needed it. Totally enjoyed it all, fab lunch too!
Response from Vitreus Art:Hi Ann, Thank you for taking the time to right a review for us. It was a pleasure working with you and we hope you are enjoying your panel very much.
