Reviews by Students:

Did a one day leading workshop for two with my dad and can’t praise it enough! Both had a wonderful day and are very pleased with our pieces. Jamal was very welcoming, patient and supportive. The amount that we had learned from him in just one day was amazing and happily recommend him for anyone else thinking of exploring stained glass. Thank you Jamal!

Alexandra Buck - 

Jamal's workshop was excellent. He was a great teacher and helped us throughout the process, showing infinite patience and amazing skills. We left with two beautiful pieces of stained glass which we are so proud of. I would wholeheartedly recommend the course. We both had a great day with Jamal. A big thank you to him for making the day a real treat.

Theo and Lucy - 

A fascinating and very enjoyable day! Jamal was very enthusiastic about his craft and created a very welcoming atmosphere. This was bought as a gift for me and my partner, but Jamal made it very easy to add an extra person onto the course. Now we all have a beautiful panel of stained glass to take home and a deeper understanding of the craft.

Helen - 

The one day workshop with Jamal was everything I wanted it to be. Fabulous day learning technique and putting it into practice. Jamal, excellent teacher, experience and patience makes for a very enjoyable and rewarding time. Highly recommended.

Ashley Willoughby - 

One day leading workshop - what a brilliant day! Jamal was very knowledgeable and was very patient, explaining all of the techniques so we understood what to do. We were thrilled with our pieces - thank you so much!

Wendy Willoughby - 

Just had a lovely day learning how to lead stained glass. So proud of my finished piece. Jamal is such kind and patient teacher and I learned so much. Would thoroughly recommend this.

Eileen Plenderleith - 

Just completed the one day workshop and loved it! Jamal is not only a patient and considerate teacher, but also an awe-inspiring artist. As others have said, this is the perfect way to spend a day absorbed in an unusual craft, under the expert guidance of a true craftsman.

Gillian - 

With no glass experience and little drawing skills, I embarked on the full Monty 4 day course. Jamal was friendly, supportive and helpful and guided me through the whole process of selecting from a handful of designs , planning and cutting , painting, shading, leading and finally cementing and polishing. Have left with some lovely pieces that I may have to keep for a while (were going to be gifts) and a head full of ideas for future projects.

Angie Willems - 

I did a 1 day leading course with Jamal and what a brilliant day it was! Jamal is creative, knowledgeable highly skilled and patient. I went with an idea and a photo and came away with a piece of art! There was a large selection of different glass to choose from, both in terms of colour and texture. The studio is covered in interesting art and glasswork, made by Jamal. This was a great experience and I cannot think of a single negative thing to write. All that's left is to say Thank You!

Pete Logan - 

The one day leading workshop yesterday was highly enjoyable and satisfying. I had never worked with stained glass before but Jamal instilled confidence from the start and was an inspiring teacher. I came away with a completed piece which was way beyond my expectations and is already on display in our home. A truly memorable day and an experience which I would recommend most highly to anyone., even as a beginner.

Peter McCann - 

I thoroughly enjoyed my day yesterday at Jamal stained glass class. Jamal is an excellent teacher, made me feel completely at ease. This was something that I had wanted to try for a long time, and I'm so glad that I did.
I would recommend anybody , any age to join in a class with Jamal

Pamela - 

Thank you, Jamal, for a very helpful, informative and professional day completely tailored to my needs and interests. I was able to practise and understand a great deal about painting figures on stained glass, the tools and equipment needed and felt I was able to make major steps in a very short time. Thank you for your patience and dedication as a teacher and your great skill as a craftsman; I hope to return for help with the next stage as soon as I can.

Fiona Morton - 

Fantastic day with Jamal, a great teacher. Cant recommend the leading course enough, oh and he makes amazing tea!!

Darren Brown - 

We had a wonderful time with Jamal making our own stained glass window. We would both highly recommend his course. Thank you.

Lee & Sophie - 

Fantastic day. Made a stained glass yacht picture. Excellent teacher, friendly and helpful. I can strongly recommend this course. 5*

Diana Hampton - 

Super day that the miserable weather could not dampen. Jamal was a great teacher and tea maker & I am more than pleased with my first foray into stained glass leading. I would recommend to anyone; you don't have to be arty. I'm proof of that. Thank you.

Jane Willinson- 

Brilliant day, 60th birthday present bit worried as not very crafty but had a wonderful time. Made a glass panel that has amazed my children, all thanks to Jamal's patient instructions and some help when needed. Excellent will try to get find time for full four days.

Sharon Woodland - 

Have just spent four days with Jamal. Thoroughly recommend the four day complete course. What a treat! He is a highly skilled and passionate artist that is totally committed to the artistic experience of his tutees!! I have produced an amazing piece of art that will be cherished for a life time. Many thanks for an outstanding experience - will be back for more!!

Catherine D - 

Had a lovely day in the workshop with Jamal. He was very patient and inspiring with my design ideas and what I wanted to get out of the day. It was challenging but rewarding and I left with a beautiful stained glass in memory of my dad. Would recommend the courses to anyone with a creative flare.

Sandra Lane - 

One day leading workshop for two. Excellent experience, in very capable hands with Jamal. We felt very welcome and all in all enjoyed an excellent day at Jamal's workshop.

Liam Taylor - 

Jamal's course is excellent, both of us thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of learning and making stained glass panels. Jamal combined a very inviting environment and friendly approach, which carefully led us through the various techniques needed to make a stained glass panel. We were given all the necessary instruction both theoretically and practically to produce a final piece and both felt extremely satisfied with our experience.
This course is great for newcomers and beginners and as we had no previous experience we were very proud of our achievements on the day. Jamal is an excellent teacher and talented artist and would highly recommend his course to anyone serious about wanting to learn about stained glass.

Ian Saffery & Debs Hill - 

My Dad and I did a 3-day painting and leading course last week. We had different painting and leading experiences, so Jamal adapted his teaching to suit both our needs. Over the 3 days, he took us through composition, selecting glass, painting, shading and finally leading. I am very proud of the panel I came away with and amazed that I could finish it in only 3 days. It now hangs from my window catch and looks beautiful. Jamal's knowledge of historic stained glass, especially in Birmingham, added to the overall experience. It was great to do something different and get out of a work mindset for 3 days; to lose myself in concentrating only on my creation was a perfect de-stresser.

Louise - 

Dear Jamal, Thank you for a great day on the Art of Stained glass leading. You took me through the whole process in a clear stepwise manner which I am sure I will be able to continue on my own. The studio was relaxing full of lovely music and birdsong-just my idea of a comfortable atmosphere to learn in. We covered not only techniques of stained glass but also history on the subject and other types of art. Your excellent teaching has inspired me and I intend to go back again to learn stained glass painting. Thanks again.

Fiona Dean -

Had a great day with my sister at one of Jamal's workshops. Jamal was very welcoming and has such an obvious passion for stained glass, he is quite inspirational.
Jamal gave us an insight into all aspects of his craft during our production of a small panel, he is very patient and there ready to help (and I needed his input!) but keen to encourage you try to do it yourself.
As one of the older generation I would certainly recommend the experience to anyone old or young. Thank you Jamal.

Mal - 

My wife and I did a 1 day leading course with Jamal. What a fantastic day we had. We really enjoyed the course and hearing Jamal's vast knowledge about glass and art. He is a talented guy. He made us very welcome in his Aladdins cave of a workshop. We love our finished pieces and amazed we did it all in a day. Would recommend to anyone.

John Mills -

I did a 1 day lead light course yesterday along with my daughter. The course was informative and covered every aspect of making a lead light from the pattern, cutting the glass all the way up to the finished product which we were able to take away. Jamal explained the processes in a clear and concise way and we learnt so much in the time we were there. I would recommend anyone to go on this course if they have an interest in stained glass or any kind of interest in crafts, a thoroughly enjoyable day. Thank you

Keith Preedy - 

I did a 4 day, one to one, course with Jamal which was fantastic. In that time we were able to cover design, cutting, painting and leading so I have come away with a finished piece I am please with. I have also gained the knowledge and confidence to develop my skills at home. Jamal has a great knowledge of the historical context of stained glass and is very skilled practitioner along side being an excellent tutor. This course was located in Jamal's cosy garden studio where every thing we could need was to hand. I found I could wait to get in the studio each day to learn the next step and now I'm itching to get started on my next project in my own studio. Jamal's courses would suit people with very little creative experience along side those coming from a more in depth artistic background. I would thoroughly recommend.

Harriet Biddington -

I had a ball. It was an excellent well taught course. I was given a good overview of stained glass, both modern and historical uses. I was able to create my own design. I was shown how to cut glass to a template then had the experience of cutting glass. This is not as easy as you might think. I was next taught how to block the design and cut the lead to frame

Bea Carter -

The course was fantastic. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in arts and crafts. We learned so much in our time with Jamal it has inspired us to take it up as a hobby. 5 out of 5 rating.

Deb and Mark McLaughlin - 

We had a wonderful day with Jamal and my mother. We came away with a piece of stained glass that we were proud of and would highly recommend this course. We did the one day leading workshop in a lovely workshop and with a very pleasant and helpful tutor. We hope to return for the glass painting course in the near future.

Hannah Sunderland - 

My mother, daughter and myself had a very enjoyable, relaxing and productive day. Would highly recommend this to beginners like ourselves or experts also and we will be back to do more. Thank you. 

Sarah Pringle - 

I have been on both the one day workshop and a three day painting workshop and both have been thoroughly inspiring and rewarding. Jamal is an excellent teacher; patient, informative and very easy to work with. His own work is stunning and he is so willing to share his experience. I thoroughly recommend his workshops whether a complete beginner, as I was, or someone with a little experience who wants to develop their skills further. 

Brenda Henderson -

Really enjoyed my two days of stained glass workshop. I never dreamed I'd come away with a fully finished beautiful stained glass panel. I only intended to come to one day, expecting to learn some techniques, but with Jamal's encouragement and enthusiasm I got started on a design I had had in mind. There's something special about making a thing of beauty like this with your own hands - thanks for all your patience and encouragement Jamal - such a relaxing and creative way to spend a day (or two!).

Tim Turner -

Have just spent a wonderful two days with Jamal making my own stained glass panel from scratch having had no previous experience at all. I learnt about design, colour and texture. I was introduced to more tools than I can mention. I learnt to cut glass, how to score it, break it grind it and grozing. I learnt how to lay out your plan, cut and fit the lead, hold everything in place with wood and horseshoe nails, how to solder, affix hooks, cement, polish, etc. etc. etc. I'm so pleased with what I was able to produce. Jamal was a first class teacher. He was able to step in if necessary but encouraged you to do everything for yourself. He is a true artist, a true gentleman and extremely interesting to talk to. I thoroughly recommend this course and Jamal.

Nicola - 

I've just had the most amazing day in Jamal's little studio and am thoroughly delighted with my stained glass panel! Jamal is a patient and encouraging teacher, so enthusiastic about his craft and incredibly informative. I will definitely be booking a place on his course on glass painting later this summer - I can't wait!

Brenda Henderson - 

I enjoyed a brilliant day with Jamal. He is a Master Craftsman, consummate artist and excellent teacher. His knowledge and expertise are immeasurable and he understands and communicates the technical - and historical - aspects of his craft very well. Jamal took time to really understand what I was trying to achieve,and what made me tick , and structured our session in an fascinating and helpful way. Above all it was a pleasure and a privilege to spend time with him and share his passion, and also to meet his delightful and talented family. I am looking forward to working with Jamal again when my project is underway and I need some expert help - but mostly to keep the connection. I recommend him very highly.

Elissa Renouf -

Excellent! My Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed our class with Jamal and came away really happy with the stained glass panels that we made. Jamal is a great teacher as has so much knowledge and enthusiasm for the topic, it was definitely infectious as we want to try making more things now! Would recommend the class to anyone as a fun day out that also gives you a greater appreciation for the skill and craftmanship involved in stained glass window making.

Rose - 

I learnt so much in just a single day and enjoyed every moment of it! Jamal is very passionate about what he does, which only adds to the already friendly and relaxing setting of his studio. I'm very happy with the glass painting we did and look forward to maybe doing some different courses in the future. Thank you Jamal!

Phil Cartwright - 

Dear Jamal,
A most enjoyable and relaxing day as a beginner learning the art of stained glass leading. I am absolutely thrilled with the glass panel I bought to you for repair and you made every stage of the restoration so enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend anyone who wants to try this course to book.
Hope to be back soon to try glass painting or more lead work.
Thank you. 

Sandra -

A fantastic day again with Jamal, learnt a lot about the art of stained glass in his great little workshop. Jamal puts you at ease and explains everything, I would recommend to any one and will visit again Jamal thanks

Ian Davies - 

Thank you Jamal, a very informative and interesting day, and I was so pleased to come away with a finished stained glass panel to my own design! Really enjoyed it, thank you.

Jane H - 

Thank you Jamal - I brought my friend with me and we both attempted a challenging design - considering we had never done any leading before and, Jamal had to help 2 people at once... 
So I had to go back for a second day to complete mine. But I am absolutely thrilled with what I produced. Jamal showed me how the accuracy of every little bit of work matters enormously. 
He provided everything one needs - and what a lot of things one needs to do this absorbing craft. 
I learnt a huge amount - and if I get the chance will return to do another project - perhaps being a bit more realistic with my aims!

Judy Smith -

The course surpassed my expectations. It was so informative , enjoyable in a comfortable environment and Jamal enabled me to create a nice composition in stained glass which I look forward to displaying. I would recommend this course to anyone. 

Kikis Cacoullis -
