Reviews by Students:

Our two day course was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and we learnt far more than we expected. Jamal took us from complete novices to producing wonderful stained glass window

Hazel & Martin Webb

I would recommend this course with Jamal he was welcoming informative and very knowledgeable and helpful. As a complete novice i felt relaxed and comfortable.

Debbie Batchelor

Attended the one day course with Jamal over the weekend. Such a great day - excellent teaching and a very creative environment. Jamal was very patient.

Alison Sturgess#25563

We really enjoyed learning how to make our first leaded stained glass panel. Jamal guided us through each step in a relaxed and comfortable garden studio.

Simon & Helen - #25563

I’ve been meaning to do a course like this for ages and was going to do a course in Bristol, but never quite got around to it. Then my wife bought me a one day course for my birthday. I’m glad I waited now as I just loved Jamal’s leading course. He has such a cosy workshop in his back garden which has everything we needed to complete the day course. He’s such a great teacher and took us through every step of creating our first piece. I even surprised myself! Just shows how good Jamal was at explaining the various techniques. I would highly recommend this course.

Peterp - #23024

I took a 3 day course learning to paint shade and leading of stained glass. It was a fantastic experience and I enjoyed every minute of this excellent course. I left feeling very confident with all the help and support given to continue developing my own designs in stained glass and leading work. I highly recommended this course to everybody.

Chris Horwood - #22826

Absolutely loved the experience of the 2 day stained glass course - I learnt so much. Jamal is an excellent tutor and thoroughly nice man. He is very helpful and understanding. I was very pleased with what I made. I'd definitely recommend this course!

John Shaw - #25004

Thank you Jamal for a super 2 day workshop. You were a wonderful teacher and I would encourage anyone considering an introduction to the craft to treat themselves and book a course.

Dawn - #24996

Jamal gave me and my friend an exellent and enlightening course on making leaded stained glass panels. His extensive knowledge and experience with these materials is second to none and I would happily recommend anyone with an interest to him. An inspirational day.

Mark Baird -  #24498

I arrived knowing nothing about stained glass or leaded lights and Jamal delivered a fantastic day of hands-on learning so that I left with new knowledge, new skills and a beautiful object to take home!
Thank you!

Christian Payne -  #24427

We had a great day with Jamal last week. He was super informative & made the whole thing really wonderful. He gave us a detailed history of Stained Glass in the UK & how a giant window is made from start to finish. We were then walked through all the tools & equipment needed and then walked us through our own piece. We all love our final products & the course has given us more confidence in giving it a go at home. His knowledge is expansive & makes for a great tutor! Would highly recommend!

Laura -  #24407

Thank you for a brilliant day with good company. I found the talk about your work fascinating and really enjoyed making my stained glass panel. It is now hanging up in the kitchen and has been admired by family and friends.

Caroline Cobbing -  #24247

Really enjoyed our leading workshop from start to finish. Jamal was extremely patient, particularly as we were both novices. We started with an informative and fascinating introduction to stained glass making before embarking on our own designs from the given templates. Very proud of our work and has pride of place in our house!

We now have a new-found respect for any stained glass artists! Thanks Jamal - Dan & Sarah

Dan -#24188

I decided to book a two day course with Jamal, as I wanted to learn more about the art of painting and leading from a professional skilled in the traditional techniques. I came away totally inspired and full of respect and awe for this beautiful art form. Jamal is an encouraging and patient teacher - who is willing to share his in-depth knowledge. I would heartily recommend this to anyone who is keen to learn more about this beautiful art form.

Kasia Howard -  #23912

I was gifted a workshop in glass leading and attended with my daughter (August 2019). The day was informative, productive and creative. Jamal is a brilliant craftsman - his passion for his art (and the medium of glass) is infectious. We created our own (very simple) designs but left understanding so much about stained glass - we will be back for the painting course sometime soon!

Becky Payne -  #23835

I attended the one day painting course. Jamal explained all about the history and production of stained glass windows which was so interesting to learn! We got to paint our own pieces from a template with Jamal's great teaching and advice. Overall, a really enjoyable day!

Annie -  #23833

An excellent and truly inspiring course in every way from start to finish. A full introduction to stained glass window making was provided. Followed by an amazing level of care, guidance and support, that helped to help secure the expertise needed to make a window from scratch to completion. I left feeling well equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to create my own pieces of art. Thank you Jamal, it was a wonderful retreat from work. I will be booking the painting on glass course soon.

Devinder Riat -  #23832

My friend and I had a wonderful day on the one day leaded glass workshop, nice relaxed atmosphere. We learnt a lot about stained glass and with Jamel's excellent tuition were able to make surprisingly good pieces to take home. If you are looking for something different, give it a go, can highly recommend this course.

Pearl Beeston -  #23749

Really enjoyed this course and am very proud of the first piece of stained glass I was able to take home. Jamal is an excellent teacher and accomplished artist. I will be coming back for more.

David Astley -  #23557

My friend and I did a two person course for two days focused just on painting. Jamal is an excellent teacher and tailored the sessions to us, finding out what we were comfortable doing already and offering us just the information we needed in the limited time we had.
We left the sessions understanding how to mix paint, which medium and pigments to choose, what equipment we needed, how to apply a matte as well as do delicate line paintings with tracing black paint. All the knowledge we hoped we would come away with to practice at home! Jamal is very welcoming and offered us images to work from as well as giving us tips to make the best of our own.

Sarah -  #19212

My father Tom Browne was a stained glass artist and extremely familiar with leaded lights - designing them and making them. As a Christmas present our daughter booked the two of us in for a one day session with Jamal. An inspired choice because the day was simply superb, and we both enjoyed every minute of it. Jamal is highly skilled but guided us both well, taking into account our 'newness' to the task. It was a day to remember!

Sam Browne - #19164

I did the one day leading course. Jamal went through everything with endless patience and a positive manner. He explained every step carefully but was on hand for those occasional blunders. It was a fabulous day and I would do it all again tomorrow! Thank you Jamal for a great experience.

Janine - #18519

I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jamal, the pace was just right to start with no knowledge and finish the day with a completed stained glass panel which is sitting proudly on the window cill at home.

Alan - #18391

This was a wonderful course, provided by Jamal, who was at every step, positive, encouraging and passionate about the medium and your capabilities. His experience is exceptional and his work and studio inspirational. Completing the 4 day course with Jamal and Christine was an absolute pleasure. I feel as though I have learned so much from the course and confident to try and make other pieces in the future.
I would definitely recommend this course and enjoyed the soothing and relaxed atmosphere that was created. Thank you Jamal and Christine for a fantastic few days.

Emma Basudev -  #18224

I did the four day course and I can’t recommend it enough. I wasn’t just taught how to do something but everyway to do it and then helped to find the best way to do it. Jamal’s experience, ability and depth of knowledge are immense - I have reams of notes that I took at the end of each day so that I didn’t forget all the tips and techniques - I feel I have learnt so much. Also the environment Jamal creates is so calm and relaxing that it teaches you to slow down, which I think is essential for stained glass. Myself and the lovely girl I shared the corse with, Emma, left each day feeling like we’d been at a spa.

Christine Redmond -  #18217

A great day for myself and my wife.

Jamal took us through the history and his own experiences in the field, before then assisting and guiding us in the creation of our pieces on the day.

Stephen Kissane - #22812

I did the one day course which was an excellent introduction to stained glass covering the history, design techniques, tools and materials involved. This was done in the relaxed atmosphere of Jamal's workshop where we we received practical experience by being guided through each of the processes involved to finally produce our own individual work-pieces.
A thoroughly enjoyable day and a springboard for the extended glass painting workshop and for taking up this craft as a hobby.

Richard Faithfull -  #22811

I had a great time on the one day leaded glass course. Jamal is a friendly, patient teacher with a wealth of experience which he shares with generosity. I came away feeling like I can have a go by myself at home and absolutely love the little panel I made during the workshop. Am keen to follow up with the glass painting course too. Highly recommended. Thanks Jamal.

Stephanie Stump - #22805

I really enjoyed the course. I felt I could do it and master it. The demonstration was very clear and simple to understand. I am planning to attend more courses with Jamal.

Eman Sorour -  #22526

My 11 year old daughter and I had an amazing day with Jamal. He is an amazing artist and craftsman and was skilled in showing us the steps needed to create leaded glass. We were amazed at what we could create in one day. Huge thanks.

Lizzy Whitehead - #22285

Reg and I did a one day stained glass leading course with Jamal, we had a fantastic day, Jamal is a very good teacher and shares his knowledge in a very friendly way. Reg has since bought glass, lead, etc and is busy making a flowered stained glass in his garage, he has caught the bug. I would certainly recommend anyone to have a go. Also whilst you are there check out Jamal’s drawings, I bought one, picking it up next week and looking forward to hanging it on my wall, he is a fantastic artist.
Brenda & Reg.

Brenda Denny -  #22018

What a stunning day. I brought my wife and daughter and together with Jamal we created some beautiful stained glass and wonderful memories. Jamal is a true artist. Being able to discuss his work with him and hear about his thought processes was life enriching and I'm so glad I was able to share it with my family. Not only that, but the path ahead to making more stained glass on our own is now clear! Jamal has set an inviting and inspirational stage to continue work on our own. Highest marks.

Thomas Hills -  #21277

A most enjoyable, informative and satisfying day. We’d never done anything like this before, but Jamal was excellent at showing and teaching us what to do- such a talented man!

Claire Ann Lane -  #21116

An outstanding day delivered by a real craftsman who took time to ensure I was able to produce a high quality stained glass panel. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time with a view to producing more panels at home as a hobby, I am so pleased I found Jamal as he has filled me with confidence. I can't wait for my birthday to get my next voucher to attend the glass painting course he runs.

Clyde Redfern -  #21099

Nice relaxed atmosphere well prepared studio highly knowledgeable teacher a lot of background information on the history of stained glass and experience of teacher

Ian street - #20972

I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jamal. His enthusiasm for his art was clear and I learned a lot in just one day. Each step of the process was explained well, and as beginner I felt totally at ease to ask questions if I wasn't sure.
Thank you! Sharon (Redditch)

Sharon Murphy -  #20964

I went on the one day course with Jamal. I had never done any stained glass/ lead work before and he was an excellent teacher. The day was shared with on other pupil and was very satisfying.

barry -  #20826

Well, what can I say about this very patient and highly informative person; Jamal was a fantastic teacher and his knowledge is incredible. I had never cut a piece of glass or held a soldering iron in my hand previously, but his gentle guidance through the process was just what I needed to create my first piece of art. I would thoroughly recommend anyone to attend , I feel confident to carry on and create my own work positively. The other participant was great and the studio was relaxing to work in and didn't feel intimidated in the slightest. What a wonderful day, one I will remember for a long time with pride. Well done Jamal, I will definitely attend the glass painting course.

Juliet Batten -  #20491

I completed Jamal's leading workshop with my husband a few days ago. We've done a similar course before but we were very happy we chose to visit Jamal.
It was a pleasure to learn about Jamal's background in art and producing beautiful windows for projects all round the world.
We learnt a lot and feel confident to pursue our own projects now.
I can't wait to return for his glass painting workshop.

Ruth Crawford -  #20364

A very interesting day was spent in Jamal's workshop for a leading workshop. You cannot dispute the knowledge and experience that Jamal has and takes you through during you workshop. It was extremely enjoyable and interesting learning about the stained glass process and I have a greater found new respect for artists in this field. We were able to take away our pieces that we had made during the day with pride. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has ever been interested in stained glass and its techniques.

Juliette Haines-Currie -  #19765

Thoroughly enjoyed the Leading Workshop. Jamal's instructions were clear and concise. His demonstrations were informative and easy to follow and put me at ease immediately. The six hours flew by and it was lovely to have a finished product to take home. Thank you

Sharon Ward -#19728

Had a wonderful time. Jamal has great experience, and the stories he tells of his past is enthralling. He passes his knowledge on very well, and the way he shows you the steps required to make your own piece of stained glass makes it easy to learn.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to give stained glass making a try.

Andrew -  #19593

It was a real privilege to spend a day with someone as skilled and talented as Jamal. As someone who loves bring creative but who lacks any natural artistic talent this course was perfect fit me. He patiently took us through each step of the stained glass leading process. His instruction was clear and his level of support just right. I would never have believed I would be carrying hone my own little price of lovingly crafted leaded stained glass at the end of just one day! Spending the day in his cosy little studio, with classical music playing softly in the background, thinking about nothing other than crafting my piece was almost like therapy. I felt totally relaxed when I got into my car to drive home.
I am considering taking up Stained Glass as my new hobby as I enter semi-retirement. I know enough to get started tomorrow but need to decide whether my commitment is strong enough to justify the initial investment in all the tools and equipment.

Jackie Small -  #19586

I had a fabulous day spent at Jamal's one day leading workshop. It is something I have been wanting to do for ages and was not disappointed. I was an absolute beginner but he was very patient and he explained clearly each step as we went along. Help was always on hand when needed, and I was thrilled with my creation! Am certainly now inspired to carry on doing this at home. I can thoroughly recommend Jamal's workshops.

Celia Thomas -  #18123

I attended the one day leading course with absolutely no previous experience. Jamal explained all the processes with authority, incredible knowledge and patience. I found the whole day absolutely compelling and finished with a completed work as a keepsake. The day with Jamal has definitely fired my enthusiasm to continue with this work. Highly recommended to any one with an interest whatever your experience. Many thanks

Roland Harrison - #17993

Booked a one day leading workshop and didn't leave disappointed. Great day and much fun had by all. Jamal is patient and very informative, taking you through all the processes of stained glass required for you to leave with a final product you'll be happy to hang in your home. Tea and coffee on tap too which is an added bonus. Great value for money.

Andy Hoccom - 

Jamal explained everything in great detail, and was extremely patient. Myself and my friends all enjoyed the experiance and felt as though we learned a great deal. The 6 hours absolutely flew by! I highly recommend this course and Jamal in particular. I will definitely be considering more of his stained glass workshops :)

Elizabeth - 

My son bought me the 1 day painting class as a present, I enjoyed the day so much I booked the 4 day course straight away. I am totally hooked and hope to continue to produce my own work and all thanks to Jamal he is a fantastic teacher. Jamal is patient, encouraging and extremely knowledgeable he has given me the confidence to use the skills he has taught me to make pieces by myself. I cannot recommend this course highly enough.

Sharron Hughes - 

I booked the day as a treat for my friend and I to celebrate my birthday. We found Jamal to be an absolute artist and craftsman - thorough and professional and VERY patient! We started off with little idea of what we were going to do and ended up (having tweaked the design, chosen the colours, cut the glass, cut the lead, pieced it together, soldered, cemented and cleaned) with a lovely panel that will always remind me of this big birthday. Jamal has a studio in his garden and it is very well set up and organised. We felt that we had a good amount of his time as there were just 2 of us so he was always on hand when we got stuck! We were fortunate enough to see a stained glass window that he has just designed and completed for a church in Plymouth - having had a go at the process I now have much more appreciation of the work that goes into them and am even more impressed! I would highly recommend this for a memorable and rewarding experience. Thanks Jamal

Heather Badham - 

We were a family of 4 with no prior experience in stained glass leading but we were looking forward to a different experience. It was an excellent day and we were extremely glad of having done this together. Jamal was extremely patient and encouraging and gave all of us some tips and tricks to make our panels look good. Jamal is an extremely talented artist himself and it was also fantastic to talk to him about his work.

Tina and Melwyn - 

Just want to take the opportunity to thank Jamal for a truly wonderful sister and I attended the one day leading course. To be honest, not really sure what to expect... possibly a ready to assemble stained glass kit? We could not have been more wrong ? cutting glass, cutting lead whilst receiving guidance from an informative and patient teacher. The icing on the cake.. I have my own piece of artwork in my kitchen that reminds me of a wonderful day. I would wholeheartedly recommend a workshop, trust me I'm not an 'arty type' and it did not matter as I thoroughly enjoyed the experience...Jamal explains the processes, provides assistance in a very genuine way. Many thanks ?

Sharon Davis-Owen - 

Where to begin, what a fantastic day, I made a stained glass panel from scratch! Jamal is a very patient extremely talented man. His work is second to none.,and you are left in awe of this very humble guy. I learnt to cut glass and lead correctly and keep my fingers, not easy when you are a left pawed person lol. If you get a chance book a course its worth every penny and more. The William Morris cups are a wonderful touch :)

Miss Karen Wright - 

I attended a 4 day course in order to learn about the painting and leading process of this ancient art. Upon my arrival I was greeted with a stunning mosaic doorstep, this delighted me straight away and then Jamal's smiling face appeared from the back garden and lead me up the garden path to his bijou studio. From the outset I knew I would enjoy the whole creative experience and I wasn't disappointed. Not only is Jamal an extremely knowledgable artist but a genuine master craftsman. During coffee breaks he kindly showed me the large panels he was currently undertaking for a church down south and these pieces were breathtaking. Back in the studio, in between his expert tuition, he also worked on some small elements of the windows and these were exquisite little 'jewels' and I felt very privileged to see him at work whilst simultaeneously receiving support to produce my own little glass 'treasure' 
I am very happy to recommend this course to students of all levels of experience as Jamal adapts to individual needs. A thoroughly enjoyable 4 days, thank you.

Poppy - 

I took a 4 day course with Jamal to explore the stained glass and enamelling processes. Although I had some ideas for the type of piece I wanted to create, I had very little previous experience. Jamal was not only an expert in his field, he was patient and offered encouragement and support to help me carry out my ideas. Jamal is highly experienced and shared samples of his own work to give inspiration and insights into the medium. I would highly recommend a course with Jamal if you want to have an expert craftsman help you learn the stained glass process.

Ellie - 

Had a fabulous time leaning all the different techniques on my one day glass leading course. It was great to be able to go from choosing the design and then see it through to taking the finished product away. Jamal- thanks for being such a patient and helpful teacher! Would highly recommend to any fellow beginners, it was a day well-spent!

Sophie - 

I recently did a four day course with Jamal, what a great course , jamals fluid and sensitve way of teaching was great, when searching for a stained glass painting course I felt I needed to have a solid grounding with a true professional and was pleased to find I'd struck gold. I would not hesitate to give Jamal a five star rating ...


I attended the leading course with Jamal and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Jamal has an excellent teaching manner, having endless patience and a good sense of humour. As a teacher myself, it was clear to me that he has carefully thought through the content of the session, beginning with a brief introductory talk on the history of the craft and then steadily progressing through each stage of the process. He clearly has tremendous talent in terms of both dexterity and aesthetic appreciation, and has a deep passion for his art. Thank you Jamal.

John Cadman - 

I attended the one day session and can simply describe it in one word "exceptional". What a wonderful day under the guidance of Jamal who is a totally amazing artist. I appreciated the pace in which the day teaching was set and it was very apparent that Jamal posses the ability to support all levels. I can highly recommend Jamal and the course you will not be disappointed. Many thanks Jamal

Parmjit Singh - 

Absolutely amazing day! Jamal was patient and very helpful. Made an amazing window piece myself that I’m proud to call my own and display and show off to anyone that wants to look and also people that don’t. HIGHLY recommend great value and great experience with a master craftsman.

Stephen Hall -  

Had a great day with Jamal an one other student. He was very good at explaining all the process’s involved an has given me the confidence to have a go at replacing a stained leaded window in my front door. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about stained glass an leaded windows

Paul Colbourn - 

Excellent Course.
One day Leaded Glass Course, in a very relaxed atmosphere and Jamal is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor.
As a complete beginner,I would recommend the course to anyone interested in any aspects of Stained Glass.
Thanks Jamal, 

Steven Miles -

It's been 2 weeks since completing a stained glass leading workshop with Jamal, and the end result is still making me smile! The day was great, well organised and Jamal was a patient teacher who was happy to pass on his experience as a stained glass artist.
I'd thoroughly recommend attending Jamal's workshops - they are well worth it.

Phil - 

What a fabulous day we had!
Jamal was a very patient tutor with huge reserves of knowledge.
I would recommend this course to anyone :-)

Lindsay - 

Dear Jamal,
Thank you for an interesting, informative and truly educational day, You were extremely patient and took time to explain each stage enabling me make my little bit of stained glass that I am so proud of. In addition your vast experience in the world of stained glass and the many fascinating and important projects you have been involved with was incredibly interesting. 
I would recommend anyone who has an interest in art or glass to attend one of Jamal's courses, you won't come away disappointed.

jan - 

We did a one day lead workshop for two and it was a lovely experience. Jamal has been great! We made a couple of decorative stained glass pieces which look really good and hung them at the kitchen window - they make me smile every time I pass by :)

Lia Kolligri - 

A highly recommended workshop for those interested in learning about the process of stained glass making. Jamal provided a brilliant one-day workshop for two of us, during which he clearly explained and demonstrated the steps for producing a piece of stained glass art. Furthermore, it was very enjoyable for us to try new practical skills like glass cutting and soldering. We were very pleased with our final pieces. Thank you!

Suzanna - 

Had a great day with Jamal. He was informative, interesting and shared all his experience in stained glass making.

T Tyack - 

I loved the whole day. Jamal is such a good teacher taking us through each step of the stained glass process so clearly. I feel very confident now to have a go by myself! Thank you!

Laura Beaven

Laura Beaven - 

I had an excellent day learning to make my first stained glass piece of art. He was extremely knowledgeable and informative of the history of stained glass making, He was generous with his support and materials. I thoroughly enjoyed my day.

K Phillips - 

Had an awsome three days with Jamal. Having read some of his previous reviews it's difficult to say more, but I have to emphasise how well he conveys technique and approach. What a pleasure it was to be tutored by him. I came away feeling I had learned something valuable, I felt satisfied instead of frustrated at not achieving what I wanted to and desparate to get on and put it into practice. Thankyou for sharing your creativity and expertise.

Frances Ford - 

Helen and I did a four days stained glass course, we learnt such a lot. Jamal is a very good teacher and very patient, full of knowledge of stain glass making , very talented person. Each day we came away feeling that we had achieved something. Plenty of tea and coffee given . At the last day which was leading and cementing , once you have finished this , you have in front of you a beautiful stain glass piece. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Many thanks, Jamal.

Kerry and Helen - 

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 - 

Having booked this for my wife's birthday, I arrived at Jamal's workshop with little artistic flair of my own but came away having had an amazing day holding my very own stained glass panel. Even though I found the early stages of glass cutting frustrating, Jamal patiently talked me through the process with an endless supply of positive reinforcement, hints and tips. Even though he holds a wealth of experience and knowledge, at no point did I feel intimidated or inadequate. His enthusiasm for the creative arts is apparent and I am hoping to join him again for another workshop in the future! I can highly recommend this workshop for true beginners and experts alike as I am certain Jamal would adapt his approach to any customer who is willing to share the day with him.

Matt W -

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!

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 -
