Testimonials

Below are testimonials from students who have attended one of Martin's stained glass, fused glass or mosaic courses / one day workshops.


“A very productive day, added greatly to my knowledge on tiffany work, great instruction , learnt some new techniques and Martin is a first class instructor”.

Dave Aspinall (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“This was an excellent course and Martin is a fantastic tutor, guiding you with his expert knowledge. You quickly start to see results and at the end of the day you have a quality made project to take home. A great experience”.

Nigel Marsh (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“Very clear, concise instruction with plenty of positive encouragement throughout. Wonderfully clean and organised workspace with loads of room and all tools easily to hand - no sharing necessary so no hanging about waiting for equipment!”.

Sue Bullock (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“It was a great workshop, the group was small enough to ensure everyone had help when required. There was a large choice of glass, colours and textures to work with. Martin is a great teacher, very professional with lots of patience - especially for an old slow coach like me!!!
Everything was demonstrated carefully and accurately, safety for ourselves and the equipment was explained thoroughly at each stage of the workshop. It was fun and a great sense of achievement fulfilled”.


Paula Fozard (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I found the one day workshop a great introduction into leaded stained glass. I now feel I have gained the confidence to buy the right tools and materials to have a try at a new hobby and get some good results. Martin is an excellent teacher and made everybody welcome”.

Chris Maxwell (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“Good facilities, great teaching, right number of students. Work challenging but achievable. Provision of stool helpful, I liked the library facility and appreciated the free coffee / tea on demand”.

Richard Burslem (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“All three workshops were well planned and executed for all levels of ability, and great fun. Martin is a great exponent of the art being an artist and teacher rolled into one! I personally enjoyed the fused glass a little more, as the technical level was not as taxing!! Having said that, I am very proud of my first "creations". Yes you take home a fully completed piece every course!”.

Breedon Beveridge (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass / Traditional stained glass / fused glass one day workshop).




“It was an excellent day learning something new, in Bryan's case, and a great refresher for me. It was especially nice to have something finished at the end of the day that we could be proud of, rather than just practising”.

Elizabeth and Bryan Vershowske (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“I thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish. Martin is an excellent tutor, patient, knowledgeable and didn't talk for too long so we could get started almost immediately. I liked the fact that after "stage 1" as it were, we had the next process carefully explained and so on. That way, there wasn't too much information to absorb all in one go. Also I appreciated the fact that despite there being more experienced people in the class, Martin began at the very beginning. I shall carry away the lovely phrase "don't ask too much of the glass" and will remember that for future forays into stained glass !”.

Margaret Davies (Christmas decoration Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoyed the whole experience. Martin is extremely welcoming and an excellent tutor.
I feel I have learnt enough for me to continue my hobby at home independently; it was an excellent day in the workshop. Martin makes the tasks easy to fallow and I am looking forwards to looking at the other courses. Excellent value, keep up the good work.”.


Sue Hall (Christmas decoration Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“New ideas. Inspiration. Course content. Martins teaching style. Learning the basics of mosaic using glass and tile. The cake.”.

Suzanne McDonald (Introduction to mosaics one day workshop).




“There was a good selection of materials to work with plus having the templates already available was useful. Doing the small coaster first was a good introduction to the basic technique before moving on to the larger project for the remainder of the day. Advice was always available if needed - it was a nice, friendly relaxed atmosphere and I enjoyed the golden oldies on the radio!”.

Linda Latif (Introduction to mosaics one day workshop) October 2014.




“Martin is a very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. His approach is very hands on, with working examples and help throughout the well thought through 1 day course. I took home a piece of stained glass which now hangs in my conservatory. Martin provides one to one tuition, in a great workshop, which is kept neat and tidy, as you would expect from a professional tutor”.

Mike Croudson (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“Martin is a great teacher; he was calm and gave me confidence to tackle each stage of the project. If anything went wrong he was always reassuring that the problem could be solved. He was also very careful about safety”.

Trudi Parsons (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Martin is a gentleman who has patience, skill and dedication. His workshop was a delight to attend. Thank you”.

Paula McCay (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“Lovely new studio - very bright and plenty of space to spread out - already planning for my next course”.

Amy Lewis (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).




“Lovely relaxed workshop but thoroughly taught. Martin is extremely patient, great instruction but always encourages your own creativity. The surroundings at Abbeydale Hamlet are lovely and peaceful and the home made cake is divine!”.

Mandy Stephens (Introduction to fused glass one day workshop).




“A brilliant day, had been looking forward to it for a long time and it was even better than anticipated. I was also amazed at just how much we made within one day. Will definitely be experimenting further with fusing glass. Martin was as supportive and encouraging as ever and as always a great source of knowledge. Thanks very much for a thoroughly absorbing & enjoyable day”.

Colin Baldwin (Introduction to fused glass one day workshop).




“Constructive , well run, good materials equipment and excellent guidance. Really nice to have been able to produce a piece in the days course learning quite a few different skills on the way. Wish we were closer to come to your evening courses but we will be coming to more day courses. Thanks”.

Graham Johnston (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“The magical mysteries of stained glass were unfolded by Martin on this workshop. It was both hard work and enjoyable and I look at my light catcher as it reflects in the sun and remember cutting the different pieces of glass, pushing the lead into shape and the tremendous sense of achievement we all had at the end of the session. I can't believe I made it!”.

Agnes Benoit-Asselman (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“First class facilities, small group of great people eager to learn, excellent tuition by Martin in a relaxed atmosphere.

Martin is an excellent teacher giving each student expert guidance and belief in achieving their goal. His classes are small with a relaxed atmosphere putting everyone at ease. His instructions are clear and precise being very encouraging and patient and you become completely absorbed in what you making. The workshop is well equipped and spacious with lots of reference martial, images and samples of other students work. The group I meet that day all left very happy, proudly holding their first piece of stained glass. I for one wish to continue this as a hobby.

Would highly recommend these classes if you are thinking of having a go. Just wish this workshop was nearer to home, would love to sign up for a weekly course”.


Christine Burrows (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoyed being able to make something I could take home and feel proud of, also learning a new skill and feeling like I could do it! I'll definitely be attending one of the weekly courses soon”.

Beth O'Donovan (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I liked learning about the tools and techniques of stained glass working. I thought that the course projects allowed me to learn a wide range of stained glass working tools and techniques. I liked the idea of taking home a completed project.”.

Clive Davies (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“Clear information, friendly atmosphere. Time whizzed by!”.

Di Earnshaw (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“This is the second one day workshop of Martin's that I have taken part in, as I live too far away to join regular classes. The new workshop at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is very good indeed and Martin's planning and delivery of these one day courses remains exemplary. At the end, even if you don't want to take things any further, you have a really nice piece of glass to take away with you. Personally, I left with a lot more than that on both occasions and I'm looking forward to Martin planning some follow-up workshops for us long-distance enthusiasts!”.

James Wilkinson (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“Small, friendly groups with individual tuition. Work at your own pace and no question too stupid. Opportunity to work both Tiffany and lead the opportunity to make a project piece of your choosing”.

Justine Wieteska (Stained glass Monday evening course).




“I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and being able to work at your own pace on projects. Martin has plenty of time to help where needed and offer advice on the best way forward with your project. All the tools you need are in the workshop and materials can be purchased from Martin from odd glass pieces to lead and solder plus boards. Martin has a small library of stained glass books so you can look through them for ideas and patterns”.

Marie Webster (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).




“I always enjoy the one to one attention which Martin manages to give to all his students. The atmosphere is always convivial and fun. Everyone is encouraged and helped to produce a piece of work which is invariably amazing no matter what level of skill you may or may not have!”.

Sue Coonan (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).




“I loved the idea that I could do anything I wanted in stained glass, and Martin would make it work. Very pleased with both my pieces”.

Harold Cataquet (Stained glass Friday morning course).




“I enjoyed learning the Tiffany technique and being able to produce a nice piece of work at the end of it. Very rewarding experience”.

Elsa Aron (Stained glass Friday morning course).




“Really enjoyed the whole day. Martin is an excellent teacher - very encouraging and patient. Came home proudly showing my finished work to my husband and family and they were extremely impressed.”

Michaela Summers (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Patient tuition which was adapted to meet our needs, warm friendly welcoming environment, expert tuition, overall a relaxed day which initiated us into the mysteries of stained glass and from which we brought home our first completed work with great pride.”

Fiona and Alice (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“It was a really lovely day and I enjoyed it all! High points. It's the way you made me believe right from the start that I could achieve a worthwhile result in one day. Instruction was clear, detailed but focused. You give each 'student' individual attention, always positive comments. You know your subject. It was very interesting to see the work of other students, some really beautiful stuff in the making.”

Jill Barraclough (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoyed everything about the course, even the elements that I found challenging. Martin has so much patience, even when things go wrong there never felt like a problem. The time just flew each evening and it was just so good to see a completed piece of work at the end of the course.”

Penny Curtis (Stained glass Monday evening course).




“It was a really enjoyable day. Your knowledge and ability to teach a group was great and I learnt a lot about how to do stained glass. I was really excited and pleased with the end product and would like to start making stained glass now!”

Aleida Richens (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I loved it all! I don't think I'm a natural but Martin was so supportive and really help me believe in myself. I enjoyed both the Tiffany and traditional Lead techniques. The aspect I enjoyed the most was seeing all the pieces come together to make a unique item. Also grinding , I loved grinding!”

Mandy Riley (Stained glass Thursday morning course).




“I enjoyed learning the basic methods of glass cutting + positioning to make the desired pattern. Was fascinating seeing the window take shape gradually.”

Vanessa Barrett (Bespoke introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoy this course because everything you need is at hand the class is limited to four people so if you need help you get it quickly. Martin can supply you with equipment that you can purchase and take home and you get to see other projects so you have an idea of what can be achieved.”

Marie Webster (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).




“It was a blast. Martin very efficient, the day is not padded out with unnecessary blather. He paced it to suit us and was helpful throughout”.

Catherine Layton (Bespoke introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoyed the opportunity to actually finish a piece of work - because of the very good tuition and having such a small group allowed us all to use martin when we wanted/needed. We didn't have to share any tools/equipment which you often find in one day workshop and there was plenty of room/choice plus a wonderful lunch”.

Jayne Bazely (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I so enjoyed this!.. Great bunch of people and martins a good teacher. It made me want to go away, buy the equipment and do it at home as a hobby, it was so much fun! Well worth the money for a great experience”.

Gillian Myers (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“A lovely day, hard work but well worth it. Very informative, lots of one to one attention”.

Julie Montague (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoy working in a small group with lots of one to one help and encouragement from Martin when needed. It is very relaxed and offers the opportunity to become completely absorbed in the moment doing something so creative and forgetting about all the stresses of life for a few hours. It’s a very supportive environment and feels like being part of a small team for the day”.

Viv Lowndes smith (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Friendly atmosphere clear and supportive instructions with the focus on encouragement, taking home my stained glass and hanging it in my front porch!”.

Judy Kilner (Bespoke introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).

June Lindley (Bespoke introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I enjoyed learning about the process from beginning to end in a relaxed and supportive environment. This was a really enjoyable day. Thank you very much”.

Mary Dalgleish (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoyed the whole course as I have never done anything like this before, the instructions were clear and help always available. Leaving at the end of the day with my own piece of stained glass was wonderful. There was only three of us and we got on well together and with Martin, it was a great experience and I hope to be able to do more at some future date. Thank you”.

Joanne Powis (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Thoroughly enjoyable day with a very pleasant helpful teacher, I found that the intense concentration helped me switch off from work”.

Beth Eaton (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoyed being shown the techniques in a step by step process and then being able to apply them straightaway made the learning very straightforward and stress-free. All in all, with regular cuppas through the day, it was a welcoming and relaxing introduction to the world of cutting glass and lead for fun without getting cut yourself!”

Alison Riley (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“As a 'veteran' of 4 courses under Martin's expert guidance I took this opportunity to revisit techniques learned before on previous courses, working in lead as I had mostly worked in Tiffany more recently. Martin was as helpful and encouraging as ever, striking an excellent balance between allowing the student to explore and develop but always being there to guide, advise and suggest. Monday evenings will not be the same this summer without the relaxation and satisfaction of a stained glass course to attend!”.

Colin Baldwin (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Martins courses provide the freedom to work in a well-equipped environment where professional help and advice is always close at hand. Martin is very keen to let you explore and challenge the boundaries of the traditional art of both lead and Tiffany glass work. I have enjoyed his classes immensely and will always value his professional opinion”.

Gary Giles (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Lost count how many of these courses I've done but I keep coming back for more - completely addicted”.

Amy Lewis (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“Without you I couldn't have done that piece and I am thrilled with the result”.

Rachel Hawke (Stained glass Thursday evening course).



“I enjoyed learning a new skill and having time out for me!! I really looked forward and enjoyed my Thursday mornings and am looking forward to my Tiffany challenge on the next course”.

Clare Cheetham (Stained glass Thursday morning course).



“My finished tulip window hanging looks wonderful and I've hung my 3 leaves that I made out in the garden and they look good too. As always it was nice to meet new people and enjoy watching what they are creating”.

Beverley Inkles (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“I enjoyed learning new skills and making things I could never have imagined being able to create. It was also great fun with good company and a lot of support available. I enjoyed learning from other peoples skills and creations and being able to progress much more quickly than I thought”.

Claire Brookes (Stained glass Thursday evening course).



“I feel very lucky that Martin is the tutor randomly chosen for the first one day course I attended. I have since attended 3 further courses and thoroughly enjoyed each one combining a mix of lead and tiffany work. The pieces I have created are very special to me and I now have the confidence and ability to have a go at home”.

Sally Ainsworth (Stained glass Tuesday evening course).



“Thoroughly enjoyable day, Martin was informative interesting and very patient but not patronising. The attention to detail in informing us the complete process required to create the desired piece from start to finish was excellent. We were free to choose our own design, which we completed 100% ourselves”.

Darren and Mandy Gould (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“A wonderfully relaxed teaching environment without a hint of feeling intimidated by the challenge of the day! Martin was immediately attentive to any query and always provided a solution to a potential problem (and rectified any that already occurred!), a really great day”.

Wendy Kaye (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I thought the whole workshop was very well organised and Martin was a very good teacher, I enjoyed learning lots of new techniques and being able to finish a piece by the end of the day”.

Melanie Jordan (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).



“Enjoyed creating a beautiful leaded light catcher and learning new skills that I will probably take forward in the future. It was good to meet and learn from a skilled and talented host and it is always interesting to meet like-minded participants”.

Paul Holbrow (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Very well taught, very clearly explained and demonstrated throughout. The small group size ensures Martin is aware of how each person is getting on, and is able to advise and encourage on an individual basis. Friendly and supportive approach adds to the enjoyment of the day”.

Caroline Prosser (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Very friendly and enjoyable workshop, the studio is a great environment and the relaxed atmosphere was a great place to learn. Really great day, thanks very much”.

Nic Harlow (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).




“I found it very enjoyable learning a new skill which resulted in 3 pieces of unique stained glass which are now proudly displayed in my house. Martin has a very calm and re-assuring teaching style and was there to guide at me every step of the process. Thank you very much”.

Helen Blomfield (Stained glass Friday morning course).



“Peaceful friendly atmosphere assistance always ready when needed but space to get on with it too so much creativity, really inspiring to see other projects and what's possible. I’m looking forward to starting again in September”.

Dee Walker (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I really enjoy Martin's courses (this is the second one) Martin offers his expertise and encouragement, nothing is too much trouble. The classes are small and friendly”.

Jay Keep (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).

Sue Coonan (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I was amazed how quickly I progressed to producing something worthy of display within 2 sessions. Martin is very approachable and immensely encouraging. He is a gifted teacher and is able to impart his knowledge at the most basic level. He is very patient and is happy to show you the same thing again and again yet resists the urge to take over. Normally I dislike going out on a cold dark evening but for this class it was a pleasure. I'll be back!”.

Hannah Nasse (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Doing the stained glass courses are addictive, I enjoyed being able to feel more confident working while still being guided by Martin when needed. When I look at what I created I am still amazed at how stunning it looks and to be proud that I made it”.

Carys Woodley (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Learning a new skill in a warm and friendly environment Plenty of positive encouragement and advice - very patient tutor! Group size of four is ideal”.

Cathy Elliott (Stained glass Friday morning course).



“Friendly atmosphere in which to learn a new skill at the hands of an experienced teacher”. /em>

David Leech (Stained glass Thursday morning course).



“I enjoyed being able to produce a glass sun catcher and being able to have expert advice from Martin on the more tricky parts of cutting and shaping the glass. I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of the workshop and seeing other people’s work and how they produced beautiful pieces of art in glass with both the lead and tiffany methods”.

Marie Webster (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).



“I enjoyed learning a new technique, small group setting & structured step by step demonstrations”.

Helen Croud (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).



“Lost count of the number of courses I've done with Martin but I've signed up for yet another in April. It's great to find that my cutting skills and confidence are increasing with each course and it's great that Martin supports me in my, often rather challenging, ideas for projects. I'll have to try hard to devise my next project to keep him on his toes!”.

Amy Lewis (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“This was my second course, it is a great place to learn and work. The workshop works really well and with only four students at the time there is plenty of time to ask questions and get tips from Martin. Martin is a great teacher and he enjoys his work, which makes the course very enjoyable for the students”.

Bianca Thompson (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I really enjoyed this course, having never done stained glass before but have had experience in 2D and 3D art and design. Martin and the other students were friendly and welcoming, showing great interest in our projects. I have learnt the basics of the stained glass process and would be keen to learn more, if time permitted”.

“I would recommend this course to anyone frustrated in the modern office work environment, wishing to focus on something creative and practical and to create something unique for their home. Good value for money, expert teacher, good location”.


Alex Scott (Stained glass Friday morning course).



“Informative, good hands on practical cause. Great enthusiastic support for your project, a real pleasure of a cause. Martin is happy to let you work at your own pace”.

“Thanks for a great class looking forward to seeing you again in the spring”.


Gary Giles (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I enjoyed learning about the different types of stained glass work and the different processes involved between Tiffany and lead work. The smaller class group is a definite plus as if you are struggling on anything more time for Martin to go over things is available. I enjoyed seeing other students work as well as Martins which gives you a good idea of what can be achieved in future projects”.

Marie Webster (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).



“Support when you need it but also inspiring confidence to allow you to explore and push yourself in tackling new techniques, projects and challenges. Martin brings out the best in all of his students through positive encouragement, support, guidance and feedback tailored to each individual. Great atmosphere, good environment”.

“This was my third course which in itself tells you how much I enjoy and value Martin's courses. Martin engenders a very relaxed and positive atmosphere which allows everybody to achieve their best. Would recommend to anybody, I will certainly be going back for a 4th course myself!”.


Colin Baldwin (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Martin is such a good and patient teacher. He is always positive about students' work and helps and advises when necessary without taking over. I chose to make a number of similar items and was really pleased with the outcome”.

Jill Whieldon (Stained glass Friday Morning course).



“I have been a regular attender of Martins courses and always enjoy his relaxed teaching methods. The work produced by all his students is always beautiful whatever the ability. I used to revel in the admiration of my friends when I showed off my handiwork, but now they are all joining the courses, so the secrets out!!!!”.

Sue Coonan (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I enjoyed learning the techniques and improving week by week. The atmosphere was relaxed and the pace was just right with help given when needed. The finished pieces were good quality, which isn't always the case when learning a new skill!”.

Lisa Johnson (Stained glass Wednesday afternoon course).



“I have thoroughly enjoyed each course that I have attended; the friendly supportive atmosphere; the environment which is conducive to learning; and plenty of support to get on and produce some lovely pieces. I've also met some lovely people on the course”.

Mark Knowles (Stained glass Tuesday evening course).



“It is a lovely atmosphere to learn in and the small groups allows for lots of individual attention and help”.

Mandy Stephens (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“I really enjoyed the whole day. I have wanted to learn about stained glass for some time but did not know where to start. After completing the workshop day I feel more confident about having a go on my own! I feel I was given a good basic introduction to all the basic requirements to be able to produce pieces of stained glass, I can't wait to get cracking”.

Janice Wilson (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoyed the fact we learned a lot of skills and completed a project in one session. I also liked the relaxed atmosphere and Martin's clear and precise instructions and demonstrations. Everything was organised and no time wasted”.

Jay Keep (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoyed learning and practicing new skills and techniques, thank you Martin and the other students for making it a fantastic day”.

Barbara Smith (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I really enjoyed the course and thought it was very well taught and gave the opportunity to learn to do tiffany and traditional stained glass. The environment was good and small classes made it easier to learn quickly and get the support needed”.

Hannah Evans (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“Martin was great with his encouragement and his enthusiasm is infectious. He is always approachable and so patient even when you seem to be constantly asking questions. Also I love the way you can see other pieces, not necessarily on your course and loved seeing Martins gorgeous window, which was a commission piece”.

Mandy Stephens (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“I really enjoyed the course which gave me the opportunity to create stained glass, as well as learn. I think the atmosphere that Martin creates in his studio allows this to happen almost effortlessly. I also appreciate how flexible and open Martin is to talk through new ideas and suggestions, and he does this in a way which doesn't leave any student feeling deflated, even if they've suggested something which clearly on reflection isn't going to work”.

“I think the course in run very professionally, to a high standard, which Martin maintains throughout”.

Mark Knowles (Stained glass Tuesday evening course).



“Love my mirror and fan lamps that I made. I love having a hobby with an end product; it makes the learning so worthwhile. Thoroughly enjoyed the class, met 3 wonderful women (don't think I have ever laughed so much on a Friday before!). Martin, as always, was an excellent teacher”.

Beverley Inkles (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“This must be the 5th course I have attended with Martin and each term I feel that he has helped me to achieve the impossible. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and one to one attention he willingly gives to each of his students. No problem seems too minor or indeed major for Martin to assist in tackling, and every student always seems to magically produce a beautiful piece of unique glass at the end of each term. Highly recommended”.

Sue Coonan (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I enjoyed the whole experience, even making mistakes. With Martin’s help and encouragement meant they were easily put right. I also enjoyed the small groups enabling more individual help and support”.

Gloria Marchbank (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“Good company & support from everyone in the group, I find the sessions very relaxing”.

Angela Redfearn (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“The challenges stained glass throws up - having completed several tiffany pieces I decided to tackle a more complex leaded glass challenge. It was hard work but Martin encourages and teaches you through all the various stages and techniques. The finished piece I am extremely pleased with”.

Kearn Nicklin (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“This was my 3rd 12-week course with Martin and they just keep getting better - maybe because I am mastering the skills to a greater degree or maybe it's simply because my Wednesday evenings seem very dull when I'm not cutting or soldering. Either way I'm back in September to finish off my current project and get started on some leaded work”.

Amy Lewis (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“Thanks for your gentle leadership and encouragement, having now done two terms I am looking forward attending another term next year. On the course I particularly enjoyed working at my own speed, being encourage by Martins teaching about what next to do. I also enjoyed the chatting with other people in the class and being able to see the unique windows we were all making”.

Carys Woodley (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“ The whole experience was enjoyable and very rewarding, I definitely want to do more. Will keep an eye on the web site.”.

Pete Nash (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



” I enjoyed everything”.

Joan Smith (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).

Chloe Thake (Introduction to mosaics one day workshop).



“Had a great day, Martin is gently encouraging. Enjoyed spending time learning something with family members, very relaxed and fun”.

Laura Boyle (Introduction to mosaics one day workshop).



“It was ideal for a beginning like me, and Martin taught at the right pace to suit everyone. Explanations and demonstrations were clear and easy to understand, and there were lots of opportunities to ask questions if things weren't clear. It was brilliant to take home a finished project at the end of the day - I have showed everyone, and I feel thoroughly fired up now to do more!
(Lunch was excellent too)”.


Helen Croud (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I enjoyed learning a completely new skill with excellent demonstrations and teaching”.

Deborah Beetham (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I wanted to thank you for making the day go so well, for patiently helping and answering all questions, and for giving me the belief that I will be able to make some more stained glass items at home. I know Jenni enjoyed the day and ended up far less stressed than she was when I got to her house in the morning. A great break from working too much.”.

Sheila Adams (Introduction to Tiffany stained glass one day workshop).

Carys Woodley (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“The course is great - I never thought I could create such a fantastic piece in such a short time! Excellent support throughout. I enjoyed creating my design with support and encouragement which allowed me to challenge myself - the support given gave me the confidence to attempt a project that I never thought I would have been able to do to such a professional level. I loved having the opportunity to work with such a fantastic new material - the wonderful world of shimmery shiny colourful glass!”.

Melanie Plevey (Stained glass Tuesday evening course).

I had always wanted to do a stained glass course and having now done so with Martin my only regret is that I didn't start years ago! Thank you”.

Emily Humphreys (Bespoke one day stained glass workshop).



“The provision of such a delicious and attractively served three course lunch was a real bonus and enabled all course participants a 'get to know you' and the small number of people on the course was good. We are looking forward to attending another day course next year and would definitely sign up for weekly courses if we lived closer to Sheffield”.

Carys Woodley (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Enjoyed everything - the teaching, learning to use the tools and producing the finished items. Very friendly, very informative”.

“Excellent tuition and encouragement. No lectures! Just hands on and guidance".

“It was absolutely brilliant and very enjoyable. I can't wait to do my own at home".

Nina Patterson (Stained glass Thursday Morning course).



“The way I was introduced immediately to the skills involved in stained glass. The sessions were always well paced and I am not sure where 2 hours went!! It seemed to fly past! I am very much a visual 'hands on' learner and this course was exactly for me. I Have absolutely LOVED every minute of it. There is loads to learn and I found a high level of satisfaction. Martin ,you are an excellent teacher and a big thank you. See you in September!!".

Kearn Nicklin (Stained glass Thursday afternoon course).

Maura Dawoud (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“Learning took place in a relaxed, friendly environment and the limited number of participants enabled us to have as much help and tuition as we needed".

Norah Mills (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).

Paul Howell (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I enjoyed making something really special and tangible and forgetting about everything else for a couple of hours. Learning new skills at the pace that suits you. Good radio and nice people. Fabulous Tutor with lots of support”.

Harriet Gray (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I liked the opportunity to try a new craft under excellent expert guidance and in a small group with opportunity for individual attention. The organisation of the materials, instructions and workspace were all brilliant, it never felt rushed and Martin's patience and guidance was really great. I felt relaxed and totally absorbed in what I was doing and for me that was a real bonus and realised a wish to try stained glass making that I have had for a long time. The end product was a lovely reminder of a great day. The lunch was excellent too!".

Viv Lowndes Smith (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“I'd wanted to do this for such a long time and it was nice to finally get the opportunity. Everything was just right, the setting, the speed at which you taught/offered support and the amount of time to practice".

Annabel Dale (Mosaic one day workshop).



“I enjoyed learning both tiffany and lead work but preferred the tiffany in the end and love the end result of my own tiffany piece - the chicken. I enjoyed the course more due to the fact that there were only four students so Martin was able to dedicate more time to explaining and assisting each and every one of us through our own projects. Martin was professional, an excellent teacher and was very patient”.

Angie Dawson (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“Small numbers meant that we all had individual attention, help always available and lots of encouragement given at every step. I liked the easy teaching style which made me feel that I could ask the same question at least 3 times without looking silly! I also enjoyed seeing other students work and the weekly project brought in by Martin”.

Sue Coonan (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“I enjoyed many things - the fact that within 5 minutes of starting we were cutting glass, the level of supervision was spot on, all the necessary equipment was readily available, Martin's obvious enthusiasm for the medium and the ease in which he passed on knowledge and the fact that at the end of 12 short weeks I had produced three pieces of work which I now have proudly exhibited in our home”.

Amy Lewis (Stained glass Wednesday evening course).



“Another wonderfully relaxing day, with a great piece of art to hang on my wall...off to design my own piece now!”.

Kerry Ford (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).

Nina Patterson (Stained glass Thursday morning course).



“I enjoyed learning something new, being able to design and create something unique. I really enjoyed every session and came home really satisfied that I had worked hard and learned new skills. I am proud of the piece I made and look forward to making something else one day”.

Laura Thomlinson (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“I just wanted to write and thank you for a brilliant day last Saturday. Your demonstrations and explanations were extremely clear, any of the difficulties I had were addressed in a positive fashion and I left feeling ready to create an individual piece. Thank you very much”.

“Just thought I would let you know how much I enjoyed the Mosaic Workshop I attended yesterday can’t wait to start creating my own”.

”It was friendly and relaxed I learnt how to do a mosaic and finished one”.

“I would thank you for making it so enjoyable I look forward to doing another workshop with you”.

Paula Quick (Mosaic one day workshop).



“Professionally presented and organised and well thought out. Martin has a very hands off approach which makes you get stuck in, so you learn and apply the techniques yourself in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. The activities are well paced and interesting and you are encouraged to try and develop your own ideas in a fully supportive environment. Overall a very satisfying and practical learning experience which gives you a very solid start on the road to stained glass lead and foil work”.

Dave Berry (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“I enjoyed the whole day, but I was really thrilled that I was able to bring home a great piece of stained glass that I show off to anybody who will listen!!”.

“Brilliant day...can't wait to have another go”.

Sally Ainsworth (Introduction to traditional stained glass one day workshop).



“Personal tuition due to small class sizes, very good workshop environment - light, clean and airy. Excellent introduction to both copper and traditional lead techniques”.

“Thank you so much Martin for introducing me to this wonderful hobby. It's something I've wanted to do for many years, and your course absolutely delivered and didn't disappoint. Also many thanks for being so accommodating and fitting in missed classes. Wouldn't have expected this - usually classes missed are classes missed. Also for your patience and assistance in making sure I ultimately completed my project. I'm absolutely thrilled with the finished article”.

Beverley Bones (Stained glass Thursday evening course).



“I really enjoyed the course. The structure and teaching was clear and very understandable, everything was set out so you could just get on with your work, there was no waiting around for equipment & tools and you were always there to help and give advice when needed: I enjoyed the course immensely and would not hesitate to do another one in the future”.

Jacqueline Clayton (Stained glass Monday evening course).



“As an "almost beginner" to stained glass I had the mad idea to make 14 trinket boxes to give as gifts for Christmas. This I would not have achieved had it not been for all of Martin's help, support and encouragement. So, thank you Martin I really appreciated all your help”.

Beverly Inkles (Stained glass Friday afternoon course).



“It was quite exciting seeing things developing each week. I found your demonstration and instruction easy to follow, and knew you were there if there were any problems. I really enjoyed the course and am pleased and amazed at the finished piece”.

“I enjoyed trying something new in a relaxed, supportive, well equipped studio. Excellent tuition”.

Pippa Hall (Christmas decoration stained glass workshop).



“Jean and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with you and were delighted to take home our beautiful sun catchers, of which we were very proud. We learnt many new skills and the small number of participants meant a high level of individual tuition. Martin, you explained everything clearly and your instructions were divided into bite size pieces so they were easy to follow. Altogether an extremely interesting, productive, inspiring and enjoyable day. Thank you”.

Stephanie Dugdale and Jean Petty (Introduction to Tiffany Stained glass one day workshop).



“Really nice to be able to complete a piece in one day, the workshop is very well organised and equipped and the small number of students meant we made great progress”.

"Enjoyed skills we learned. Thought the teaching was spot on with a good balance of demonstration and positive support when doing our own pieces".

Bridget Thompson (Stained glass evening course).

Carol Sutton (Stained glass evening course).



"The organisation Martin provided and clear objectives meant that the maximum learning was achieved in the time available. Within the course, there was flexibility to allow for individual skill and individuality".

Hilary Jowle (Stained glass evening course).



”I enjoyed every aspect of the course, from getting an understanding of the different techniques required for tiffany and lead work to meeting new people. I also found the studio a pleasant and comfortable place to be. Last but not least, I have 2 lovely window hangings that I have shown to absolutely everyone”.

Beverly Inkles (Stained glass evening course).



”Friendly atmosphere, excellent tuition with enthusiasm and support at all stages. Tuition is at the right level for you and done with humour and sensitivity. Martin is patient and very knowledgeable and you feel relaxed and have a great sense of achievement that you made the object”.

“Excellent course will be booking again, when I can get in. Eager to learn more!”.


Andrew Clayton (Stained glass evening course).



”That I was totally absorbed from beginning to end, to the extent that I almost objected to being removed from the grinder to have (a delicious) lunch!”.

Kerry Ford (Introduction to Tiffany glass, one day workshop).



”I hope I will be able to come back and do another course sometime soon I really enjoyed it”.

Lynn Nicholson (Stained glass evening course).

Karen Armitage (Stained glass evening course) .



”It was the first time I had worked with glass and I really enjoyed it. I found all of the procedures interesting, and even the grinding quite therapeutic. I felt I had virtually one to one teaching, which I did have on one evening! It helped that a couple attending the course, were experienced and just needed a guiding hand. I was very pleased with the pieces I produced”.

Wendy Robertson (Stained glass evening course).



”It was easy to understand and easy to pick up. It was extremely good fun. It was also very satisfying to come away with several completed items”.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the day. It was very informative and easy to pick up. I had never done a stained glass course before but the instructions were clear and I did not feel that I was at a disadvantage even though I was the only beginner in the class. Martin had an excellent teaching manner and was easy to approach with any question regarding the class. I would strongly recommend this class to anyone”.

“The whole day was brilliant!”.
