Feedback on Swansea courses September 2019

 

“Really great! I enjoyed every minute and learned so much. Have learned a lot not only about glass painting, but the history, construction of windows in the past and present.”

 

“I loved the course and Jonathan Cooke and can recommend it highly.”

 

“Fabulous. Incredibly enjoyable and I feel I have learned so much. Jonathan is a wonderful teacher – his knowledge and expertise are second to none and his enthusiasm and ability to communicate his skills are rich and wonderful.”

 

“I had an amazing experience on the course. Jonathan was brilliant and the AGC were always available to help. 5 star experience.”
