Manchester Stained Glass courses - student at work

Student feedback:

"Fun, creative, informative and fantastic courses in both stained glass window design/production plus jewelry and copper foiling. Loved every second and each piece completed; helped along by two exceptionally creative, friendly and accommodating artists."

"I can thoroughly recommend spending time in the company of Sharon and Lauren, learning a new skill and having your very own individual piece of stained glass or copper foiling masterpiece to take home. An intensely satisfying and fantastic way to get those creative juices flowing."
