The course is an excellent introduction to leaded stained glass. The day is action packed and hard work to finish the leaded panel. It is hugely enjoyable and ably led by Gen. I would thoroughly recommend this course

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you John for your lovely comments. I hope you will now be able to continue with the creativity you started 20 years ago and make lots of lovely stained glass work. I was so pleased with your finished piece.

Had a brilliant day with Gen.

Did the stained glass course which was a bit trickier than I had anticipated but Gen was really patient and showed me what to do when I had gotten in a muddle. Had a super lunch and sat chatting with the other lady Joanne on the course. Learnt a lot of new things about cutting glass with the different tools. Would definitely recommend this course and I’m sure the fused glass course it just as educational.
Thank you Gen.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Lovely to have you on the course and so pleased you enjoyed the day, learned lots and took away your own hand-made lovely piece.

I had a most enjoyable morning on Thursday, learning so much and creating 4 panels for a lovely lantern in Gen's fused glass class.
The atmosphere was congenial, knowledgeable, fun and learning a new skill as a beginner was great.
Thanks for the experience and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished result!

We had a wonderful day. My wife and I made 2 lovely pieces with Gen giving fantastic instruction and guidance. It was a craft we've never had a go at before and while some aspects were challenging, particularly putting it together like a jigsaw, it was wonderful to have the result that came from it. We can't wait to have a go ourselves and maybe even book another course with Gen. Thank you.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

I had a really fun day teaching you the multiple techniques that go into making a leaded stained glass panel. It certainly makes you appreciate all the old medieval church windows made without the tools and PPE that we take for granted now! I look forward to seeing you both again for another fun and creative workshop.

Gen was the perfect hostess and gave excellent well paced direction for what can be a tricky craft. She demonstrated all the techniques needed to give first timers like me the confidence to have a go at home. Despite my sometimes frustrating habit of not doing as instructed, she patiently nudged me back to the righteous ways of the glass wizard !

A lovely lunch was provided and refreshments a plenty highly recommended.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for your lovely review. I had a great day with you and was so pleased you worked through all the processes to make your own individual piece that you should be proud of.

Had a wonderful morning with Genevieve yesterday making panels for a lantern. Her workshop is in the huge basement of her house, and was easy to find.
It was very well organised and Genevieve is very professional, knowledgeable and professional - I ran a bit over time but this wasnt an issue. Im looking forward to going to collect my fired pieces in a week or so. Would highly recommend.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for being such a fun student! I had a great morning and can't wait to give you your lantern complete with your four unique fused glass panels.

Had a really enjoyable enameling session with Gen. She makes the process really accessible and fun, offering a wide variety of options in terms of what materials you can use/incorporate to create your final pieces. Thoroughly recommend.

I had a great time on this course. I learned a lot and came away with three enamelled items that I’m very pleased with. The course was friendly and well-organised. Genevieve demonstrated a number of techniques and made suggestions for adapting these, as well as answering my many questions.
She has a clear enthusiasm for her craft which was quite inspirational. I’d like to come back for the full-day course when dates are available.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for the lovely feedback. I had a really great afternoon with both of you. I will be in touch about dates for a full-day course very soon.

What a lovely morning spent with likeminded people taking part in the fused glass taster workshop! We can't wait to see our pieces once they've been in the kiln. It definitely made me want to pursue this craft. I would recommend it to anyone!

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

I had a great morning with you all and loved seeing you all take the same student suggested theme to create your own individual unique flower meadows. I hope you will all be really pleased with the finished results.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one day course with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. Gen was very welcoming and a joy to spend the day with sharing her knowledge and passion for all things glass. I felt that I learnt a great deal from Gen who was happy to answer my questions and guided me through each stage to complete a now treasured piece of glass work. I now feel ready to start my new creative path into working with glass in confidence with the skills Gen taught me. Thank you for an inspirational day!

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such lovely feedback. Good luck with your new creative path, and feel free to email me if you have any questions or need any advice.

I can not express how much I enjoyed my time with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. I found the course stimulating it was far better than I expected and I was looking forward to it. Gen is very knowledgeable and has a lovely manor when taking you through all the process stages. I highly recommend this course.
I also should say that the other students on the course, Trevor, Lynn, and Grey were a pleasure to spend time with.
Thank You Ian

A fabulous day making a stained glass panel. The other three participants were good company and very supportive. Gen is an excellent teacher, knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging at all stages and I actually came away feeling proud of my panel but also with a clear understanding of the process. Lunch in the garden was fab!! Thanks for a great day - I feel inspired to do more.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you Lyn for a lovely review and for being part of a really fun day of stained glass. I hope you feel inspired to continue with your creative activities and will come back for more glass learning.

An excellent day. Gen the tutor was knowledgeable and supportive in her teaching. All materials were supplied, lunch was lovely and the rest of the small group (just four of us) were all great. We each came away with a small stained glass window of our own making. A great introduction to the craft.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you Trevor. I had a really great day with you too and I hope you have more creative fun making more panels of your own.

Completed the taster session with my daughter and really enjoyed it. Genevieve is very relaxed and informative and the 3 hours passed so quickly. Really nice to have completed work to take home immediately and some peaceful, positive creativity in today's situation. Recommended.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such a lovely review. It was lovely to share with you both the fun and excitement of working with a hot kiln to produce lovely original enamelled work.

Had a fabulous day enamelling with Genevieve and two other really nice pupils. Genevieve's passion came through in her teaching and she puts everything into what she does. Her joining instructions were excellent. Her facilities and stock were perfect for what we were doing. Lunch was five star as well. If you are a bit nervous of using kilns - don’t be. It was a safe environment. I came away with some lovely pieces and I’m definitely going to go again. Thank you Genevieve.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such lovely feedback. Having an enthusiastic group of students makes my life as a tutor so much fun and I loved the day too. You made some lovely pieces of work which you should be very proud of. I look forward to having you back for some more creativity.

Gen is a lovely, relaxed tutor who not only teaches clearly but lets you experiment and try out ideas. Well structured and paced class which results in you having pieces to take home. Recommended.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such a lovely review. I always love teaching students new to enamelling and their excitement when working with a hot kiln with great results at the end.

I did the enamelling taster course and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hadn't done any work with copper before and Gen was a great teacher, providing us with an array of different materials to work with. We each left with 3 pieces to take home and I would love to do it again.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

I am really pleased you had a good afternoon. It is always fun teaching an enamelling course as the process is so immediate and it is exciting working with a hot kiln.
