Great Learning Experience!By Phil S
A very enjoyable day which was a great learning experience with a great memento to bring home. The course was hands on and covered the fundamental's of handling glass through to building the finished decolorated mirror. the day passed very quickly as it was well paced and you were working the whole time. Full praise for Karen and the folks at Creative Glass Guild. If you have ever wanted to try stained glass work its a great experience

Did 2 days with Karen from the Creative Glass Guild on the stained Glass and then the Copper Foiling Day. Had a brilliant 2 days where I learnt how to improve my cutting, soldering and copperfoiling. I had never used lead came before so those were new skills learnt and now need to be worked on. Learnt so much I have booked the 2 day Stained Glass course.
