If you are a beginner in glasswork and want an in-depth look at the craft behind stained glass windows and mirrors, then this is the course for you. Run from our Bristol studios.
This is a LEVEL ONE course - Suitable for beginners.
What does the course cover?
As opposed to our taster day course, this weekend provides a more detailed look at making a stained glass panel, working on more elaborate designs within a template. You will choose your glass from our vast selection and our expert tutors will show you how to cut it to a pattern. You will then be taught how to cut and shape your lead came, solder it, cement it and polish it. You will complete a stained glass light-catcher or mirror to take home. The piece will be 12" x 12".
With this course we are offering you the chance to learn key skills to begin a new glass hobby.
There is a maximum of 10 students on this course to ensure individual attention.
On completion of the course you will receive a Guild Membership card which entitles you to 10% off your next course as well as other benefits.
Note: This course involves working with lead, for safety reasons we recommend that pregnant women do not attend.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself and your enthusiasm! We provide all materials, glass, lead, solder and tools for your day. 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.
What are the course times?
The course starts at 10am and runs until approximately 4pm. There is a chance that it may overrun depending on progress.
We will try to make our courses accessible to all however if you have any disabilities or physical limitations of any kind we ask that you discuss it with us before booking.
