Absolutely Brilliant

As I’m so proud of them, I thought I’d send you a picture of the glass panels that I’ve made for the window in our garden wall. The course that I came on the other week was absolutely brilliant. It was amazing what you managed to teach us all in just one day. Thanks once more for such clear, careful instruction.
All the best,

We’re Really Keen!

Hi Richard
Thanks again for the workshop yesterday. Gaby, Ed and I enjoyed it immensely and we’re really keen to continue working with stained glass. Can you add us to your evening class waiting list?
Many thanks and best wishes


The Envy of All Our Friends

Hello Richard,
I am sorry it has taken so long to write a few words to thank you for your work. We are extremely happy with it and we are the envy of all our friends. You did an amazing job. Every morning when I go down I think how beautiful it looks. Thank you again.
Kind Regards

An Inspired Gift


The course last Saturday was exciting and very stimulating. You may recall that it was a present from my wife. It turned our to be an inspired gift.

I also enjoyed Stoke Newington which I had not been to before. Many years ago I lived in Moseley, Birmingham which had the same feel of a discrete village within a larger conurbation.

Thank you for the whole experience.


Lovely Results!

Hi Richard,
Just got my plates home and am really pleased with them all! So thank you for a really brilliant day and for some lovely results! I’ve definitely got the bug so hope to come back again and will rave about the class to all my friends.
Thanks so much,


Great Introduction!

Hi Richard

Just wanted to say thank you for a great introduction to fused glass today. Really useful!

Dear Richard, I just wanted to say how enjoyable the course was on Saturday as someone with very little practical skills it was challenging without being impossible and great to be able to take home something you have produced yourself (well mostly) which looks good.

Thank you very much

Best wishes, Janet

Dear Richard,

just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a most enjoyable and unusual course yesterday.  Not many people are lucky enough to get a chance to have a go at making their own stained glass, it was fascinating.  To my great surprise my 'flower' has been well-received, very much thanks to your expertise!  You packed a great deal into the day and yet it felt very relaxed and enjoyable.  A very good  birthday present!

I will certainly pass on your details.  Hopefully I will carry on and do some more in time.
Best wishes
