“ I really enjoyed the copper foiling day. Jo’s studio is a lovely welcoming work space and she is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Her love of glass and attention to detail rubs off and I am very pleased with my angel light catcher. I would recommend one of her courses to anyone with an interest in glass whatever their ability.” Margaret "When I have attended one of Jo's classes, I have started with a partial vision of what I wanted to achieve. She offered creative, sensitive advice to refine and develop my ideas and guidance on how to turn them into reality. I was often presented with options to consider so it was very much my work. Her approach and support meant that the final pieces exceeded my original expectations. Time in the sessions simply sped by. Can't wait to register for another course." Sue
"I had a really enjoyable time on my recent stained glass weekend course. Jo the tutor is really supportive, knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for her craft is infectious. It was a pleasure to work in such a pleasant comfortable studio and I am delighted with my panel. Her individual attention to pupils is first rate and I hope to do another course. PS The lentil soup is to die for!" Margaret
"Jo thanks for another wonderful taster session. I am so pleased how my work turned out after being fired. I think one of the most exciting and fun parts are waiting to see what magical transformations have occurred during the firing process. I will definitely be back for more classes in the future and spreading the word to others what great classes you offer." pat

"I had such a lovely day yesterday, my third course! (and I am already looking have forward to doing another later this year). I think what I have loved most about your courses (apart from your delicious lunches) is the way in which you have been able to meet the tuition needs of each individual person on the courses so seamlessly. I said it yesterday but will say it again THANK YOU for another truly enjoyable day." Lucinda Dransfield " We are both thrilled with the finished windows - transforms the house - and they are everything we hoped. Beautiful designs - but still in keeping with the era of the house. Many thanks again, Ian

"Had a wonderful time on the one day glass fusing course today. Jo explained all the different processes and techniques to us very clearly and I can't wait to see the end result when it's fired. The small class size meant that we could get advice when we needed it and it was fascinating to see the variety of pieces we produced in the end", Ellie Twigg, Leeds
I finally picked up my glass fusion piece today and I am so happy with the end result. I've never taken a class like this before and have to admit, I was little nervous prior to that day! It was such a relaxing and informative day. Jo-Ann is a knowledgeable teacher with a calm and encouraging style and there was a great selections of materials on hand to play with. I couldnt have hoped for a better first experience in the world if glass. Thanks so much x Fay Bradley The 2 day leaded stained glass course is an ideal introduction for anyone looking to take up a new (and highly addictive) hobby! My chosen design was pretty complex but Jo supported and advised throughout the whole process and, as there were just 2 of us, I had all the time I needed. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get an excellent intro to a fascinating subject.
