Vad du kommer att göra
This one-day course will introduce you to the medieval craft of stained glass. You will choose from a selection of designs that are all achievable in a day. Your day will include tuition and all the materials needed to make a panel with a simple design approx 20cm square or a rectangle 20cm x 25cm. Classes are small - one or two people - so you get a lot of individual tuition and extra help if needed. By the end of the day you will have a beautiful leaded glass panel to take home. We start at 9am with an introduction to the day. You will then learn the basics of glass cutting before choosing a design and selecting your glass from a range of colours and textures to make your panel unique. After you have cut the glass pieces to fit the design I teach you how to use lead and solder to join the glass pieces together. To finish your piece you will learn to cement and polish to make your panel strong and water-tight. I aim to finish the day at 5 or 6pm. There will be refreshment breaks mid-morning and mid-afternoon and a light lunch around 1pm. I am an Airbnb Superhost and can accommodate up to four guests in two double rooms so you can make a weekend of it.
I am a skilled stained glass artist and began learning my craft in 2004. I have studied with glass artists Amanda Moriarty, Milly Francis and Molly Meager and taken courses in fusing, engraving and glass painting. I recently retired from a career in local government and can now devote my time to developing my stained glass practice. I have been teaching one day courses for 4 years and really enjoy passing on my knowledge to others. My pupils say I am an informative and patient teacher. I would love to help you make something beautiful to take home and display.
A light lunch of either home-made soup or a salad is included in the price. Let me know any dietary requirements.
Hot or cold drinks will be on offer at points during the day. I will try to accommodate any special requirements.
All special equipment, tools and material required for making your panel will be supplied.
