The hotel’s joint owner Jo is a keen stained glass artist and when not working within the hotel itself can be found in her workshop making bespoke pieces of art. Calendar events are often the source of her artistic inspiration and guests who dined at the hotel restaurant for Valentine’s Day were given a stained glass heart on departure.
In addition to realising her own designs, Jo also takes commission orders and leads workshops where she enjoys sharing her skills with others. Beginners can complete a pretty stained glass sun catcher within a few hours of tuition to adorn their home – a perfect keepsake from their visit to Aylestone Court.
Small parties can learn together so why not call the hotel and speak to Jo about any ideas you might have. And, if a piece of Jo’s homemade stained glass catches your eye during your stay, it can be purchased or re-created for you to your exact specifications.
