This is a course for glassmakers looking to improve their skills and eradicate bad habits.
What does the course cover?
Bring your own design and measurements and build your own bespoke panel over four days. Discover the benefits of choosing different sizes of lead, learn how to cut challenging shapes and produce a technically sound and professional piece of glasswork.
When booking, please send a copy of your design and measurements to firstname.lastname@example.org as these need to be approved before the start of the course. Your piece will need to be of a reasonable size with no more than about 25 pieces so that it can be built on a board and put away or taken home between weekends. We encourage you to challenge yourself.
Materials are not included.
There is a maximum of 4 students on this course to ensure individual attention.
Note: This course involves working with lead, for safety reasons we recommend that pregnant women do not attend.
What do I need to bring?
Material costs are not included in the price of this course and you will need to buy your own. We recommend that you do so at the start of the course, as your tutor can suggests which glass and lead could be best for your design. The use of tools is included. Please wear sturdy shoes (no open toes) and old clothes.
We will provide a delicious cold lunch from Pret a Manger as well as light refreshments throughout the day. Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater to everyone but this cannot always be guaranteed.
