A few comments from our happy customers

I have just completed a 2 day workshop for copper foiled stained glass. I had no experience whatsoever in glass work, but with Matts patience, guidance and encouragement, in a very relaxed atmosphere, I came home with a stained glass panel that I was proud of. I would recommend this course to beginners and improvers, and I shall be going back to try out another of the courses.
Thanks Matt for a great couple of days.


Just had such a lovely weekend with Matt and one other student, doing a 2 day glass fusing course. Absolute beginner but Matt made me feel I could achieve anything. She was inspiring, patient and encouraging. There were only two of us in the class so we had all the support we needed. She helped us to work at our own pace and using our own style. Matt just gave us the knowledge to work safely and some inspiration from her own work and then let us explore and discover how to work with glass. I was delighted with the end products that I’ve seen and I’m itching to see the final pieces coming out of the kiln this week.
Thank you Matt for a brilliant weekend. I hope this inspires others to have a go.

We had a lovely two days making stained glass. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we took something home that we were proud of. Mattt was very supportive and guided us through the process well, whilst making use feel very welcome. We would recommend the course to anyone who has thought about doing stained glass, or anything creative as a hobby.

Thank you for a fantastic few days!

Matt is a wonderfully calm and inspiring teacher. She is extraordinarily patient and obviously derives joy from her pupils gaining confidence and skills.

I had a real sense of achievement from producing my first piece of appliqué glass work that is now gracing my mantelpiece. She has much to offer the beginner as well as those with more experience within the visual arts.

The surroundings are tranquil; I particularly loved sitting on the swing seat in the garden that reminded me of special moments in my childhood.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her courses and tuition to anyone who wanted an enriching creative break and a time for rest for their soul.

Absolutely loved it! I went with my sister to do a glass fusing day. There was just the two of us which meant that we got Matts full attention. We both learnt so much and I cant wait to get my bits. Matt was professional but very friendly. My sister and I both teach so I think we are qualified to say that Matt is a really good teacher, patient, engaging and a super host. I will be doing this course often.

Great teaching enabled me to design and make my own stained glass panel with no experience. It was a fantastic couple of days and I look forward to returning.

Thanks Mattt for a fantastic day and the info you’ve just sent. We will put positive feedback up but did want to thank you now before time rushes by with school being busy finishing the year. We were blown away by your knowledge of glass and we’re fired up by your enthusiasm and ideas. Great supportive practical teaching too.

Hoping to see you over summer.

Kind regards,

Dear Matt

I just wanted to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable day.  This was quite a departure from my usual craft (patchwork and quilting).

You are a lovely,  calm teacher and your instructions were very clear. Lunch was delicious and your welcome very warm and friendly.

Thank you again for a memorable day. I look forward to collecting my pieces.

Best wishes



I thoroughly enjoyed my day thank you so much. You certainly are a font of so much valuable knowledge and insight into how best to deal with the whole glass process it made for such an interesting day.

I also wanted to extend my sincere appreciation for all the disinfecting and sanitary measures you put in place along with the room to social distance too. It made me feel quite safe and allowed me to not worry about that and just focus on enjoying the whole new experience that the day represented.




Thank you for enlightening, sharing and caring!

We have both had a WONDERFUL 2 days”

Hello Mattt.
We both wanted to drop you a quick line, just to say a big ‘thank you’ for our weekend, and for all your patience and guidance.
Our ‘Lilly’ is residing safely, in the front window, looking out! We’re still trying to get those last little bits of something (?) out of our hands, and still recovering from using muscles we never know we had!
But seriously, a great and very relaxing weekend.
Thank you again,
Sarah & Michael
