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

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

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

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

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
