Stained Glass with Painting - 6 Week Evening Course
New course! This course will run on six consecutive Tuesday evenings, from 17th September 2019, 6pm - 9pm. Please see full details below.
A 6-week evening course offering those with some experience the opportunity to develop their core skills and eradicate bad habits. You will design and create a panel from scratch. Discover the best ways to use coloured glass and lead lines to achieve your design, before cutting glass, leading, soldering, cementing and finishing your pieces. You will also have the opportunity to incorporate painted glass pieces which will be fired in our kilns. This is a traditional process used in church windows and a relaxing, intricate process to learn.
This course is well suited to those who have attended a beginner course and/or have been practicing their skills at home but know there is room for improvement. This could be a great opportunity to set some time aside to really hone your skills and build your confidence. Perhaps you have a fan light or window at home you'd like to have a go at? The choice is up to you, but a guide size is A3/A2, to ensure you finish it by the end of the course and have the opportunity to learn all the skills offered.
There will be a maximum of 6 students to ensure individual attention.
This course will be taught by Sarah Saunders.
Course price includes the use of tools and kilns. Materials are not included but some practice glass will be provided. Our shop is adjacent to the studios and you will be able to buy your glass as you go along and enjoy a 10% shop discount while on the course. You will likely need to spend between £40-£100 on materials over the length of the course.
Light refreshments will be provided and there is a fridge for student use.
