Stoney Parsons teaches courses in her delightful studio on a country park estate just outside Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Tunbridge Wells is only an hour away from London on the train, connecting with London Bridge, Waterloo and starting at Charing Cross.

Stoney has been a professional stained glass artist for many years and has vast experience and enthusiasm for the subject. She is a very experienced teacher, having taught at West Dean College for 6 years, Moray Art Centre and Skyros Holidays as well as in her own studios. She believes that everyone is creative and enjoys helping students reach their full potential.

Her courses are designed to be creative, practical and fun. Students will get a really good grounding in how to make stained glass panels and learn the basic techniques virtually unchanged since medieval times. They will get lots of tips and pointers on how to avoid common pitfalls. They will leave the Glass Studio with a real sense of achievement having learnt a new skill which will open up exciting new creative horizons.



'I have attended several of Stoney’s Glass courses, stained glass and glass painting and have found them not just a great learning experience but also a great deal of fun. Stoney is a great teacher and makes you feel relaxed and also instills confidence within.'  Sharon Hunt

‘A huge thank you for a great day on Saturday. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I feel as if I have begun to learn a new skill from a real master.’ Steve Bree

‘Thank you so much for a great 2 day workshop in October. I had such a good time learning the techniques and tips to make the glass panels, which you taught so clearly. The people and food were great too.  I think I am hooked on stained glass and hope to make more panels.’ Jo Jones

‘Emily and I would just like to thank you once again, for a most amazing couple of days of creative bliss. We came away at the end of Saturday feeling as though we had been in a most satisfying timeless bubble and felt so proud of our achievements, which I hasten to add are prominently on display. Thank you to Rachel too, for the fantastic catering.’ Jane Whitty

‘Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the course. What a treat to be completely absorbed in something for oneself for two whole days. Thanks for your patience, expertise and good humour (and Rachel's tasty cooking). It was great fun and my husband and girls were very impressed by my panel.’  Tracy Drysdale

‘Thank you for all your time and expertise last week. I thoroughly enjoyed the two day course and I must say my wife was very impressed with the resulting stained glass window. I came away feeling I had learned a great deal, confident about having another go and keen to do so. You're a great teacher!’ Nick Lovell

‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fabulous stained glass course at the weekend.  What a wonderful way to spend a weekend. I can’t believe I did it!!! lol  I must say I was really nervous about the glass, much as I love it I didn’t want to break it but it just requires confidence and you instilled that into me in a very short time.  My husband and son are very impressed with my piece.’ Nicole Morton

'I just wanted to thank you for a great course last weekend.  I throughly enjoyed making my piece of stained glass - I thought you inspired and helped us all with our creativity. ' Denise Carapiet
