Feedback from November 2022 course
“I attended a three day stained glass painting course with Jonathan at his studio in Yorkshire in winter 2022. The course was perfectly pitched for me. Lots of information and note taking in the morning, casual enough to allow interruptions and discussions, but focussed enough to allow me to absorb the knowledge and experience Jonathan shared with us. The afternoons were spent experimenting ourselves with glass paints and different mediums, and layering the paint up to produce various contrasting effects.
The joy of Jonathan’s teaching is that although a skilled practitioner and restorer himself, he allows you to ‘go with the flow’ of your own style, and to discover how the techniques he demonstrates can transform your own work. It was a real freedom to be able to do this, and not slavishly copy someone else’s template. He is exceptionally generous with his time, a very patient teacher, unfazed by spillage/endless questions/your own poor equipment, and has a gentle, puckish sense of humour.
I found the three and a bit days interesting, a valuable intense period of learning, a treat to have a clear, clean area to work and experiment, and money very well spent.”
“Lovely to meet you… I had such a good time and sad in some ways it’s finished; however, I am very much looking forward to start painting and keep it going.
“Jonathan delivered an amazing three days and is such a good teacher.”
