Level One - Suitable for beginners
This weekend course at our Bristol Studio is designed for those who wish to add a new dimension to their stained glasswork. It is a technique based course, that teaches the correct way to use your traditional stained glass painting tools and materials to achieve the best results. Students will learn how to mix paints, which brushes to use, how to trace, matt and shade a design and how to fire the paint and silver stain on to the glass.
Students will learn the process by producing a series of pieces of hand painted work throughout the day and finally fire them in our glass kilns. We aim to give you the knowledge and experience to go further with your own development through practising and experimenting. The course will cover traditional working methods in stained glass production.
