Testimonials for Jeff Hamilton
“Wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your course. Will be referring you to the committee in my survey response… From you we received great tuition, well structured, very well prepared and very personable. As a bonus we were given insights into the technical aspects of stained glass and its history. This year’s course (2014) was even better than 2013. Hope to enroll with you in 2015.”
Terry Silk (August 2014)
“I was taught by Jeffrey Hamilton, some years ago, I can tell you he is the BEST PERSON to teach you leadlighting, painting on glass and foiling… Whilst there in his old studio in Lane Cove, I and my fellow participants learnt many things from Jeff. The more difficult the pattern the more accomplished you will become. I know he pushed me to the limits.”
Paul Brunyee (June 2014)
“Thanks so much for teaching such a great class. It was so much fun and it was great to be able to produce a completed stained glass hanging. I can’t wait to start my next project!”
