Feedback on LS21 course March 2021

"The course was so wonderful! I think that Jonathan is a great teacher and also patient, very kind and encouraging. I learned so much in these three days! What I also appreciated is that he explained why sometimes things don't work and what to do about it." 


"Thank you for all the knowledge you have shared with me and all the skills you have given me over the last four days,  I have learned enough to keep me practising for a lifetime! You have also inspired me immensely and given me the confidence to work harder on my own art..."


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.”
