Gen provided a delicious lunch and I couldn’t believe how much I and my friend made in one day .. the course was extremely good value, good fun and packed with expertly taught material.. I’m so excited to see my creations and very keen to return in the future to learn more with Gen ..loved it Thankyou Gen !"

Caroline Elliott reviewed: Introduction to leaded stained glass

"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."

Wicked Gen Crafts responded:

" 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. "

Shane Taylor reviewed: Introduction to leaded stained glass

"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."

Wicked Gen Crafts responded:

" 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."

Nigel the bodger reviewed: Introduction to leaded stained glass

"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."

Wicked Gen Crafts responded:

" 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."

Heather Croft reviewed: A day of kiln fired enamelling on copper

"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."
