SHORT WEEKDAY COURSES
I run weekday workshops to suit individuals or small groups who would like to come and learn the basics of stained glass window making, the art of fused glass or how to do traditional stained glass painting.
ONE DAY GLASS FUSING COURSE - £100.00 plus any materials used. This course is great for beginners and people who already have some knowledge of fused glass. We use float glass and oceanside 96 glass. On the course you will learn how to cut glass and create patterns. Through the day you will learn about different glass you can use, compatibility, moulds, inclusions and firing schedules. You can create a range of different pieces from jewellery and coasters to hangings, bowls and wall pieces.
TWO DAY STAINED GLASS COURSE - £150.00 plus any materials used. An in depth and rounded introduction into leaded work. A great start if you are planning to continue making afterwards or a great project for a one off treat. On this course you will complete a leaded window, hanging or mirror of your own design (approx 300x500mm) You will learn how to design and draw up your pattern,cut the glass, lead and solder your panel.
TWO/THREE DAY TRADITIONAL GLASS PAINTING WORKSHOP - £200.00 plus materials for the first two days with the option for extra days. You will learn about the traditional ceramic enamels that are used, how to mix them, what brushes and equipment to use. How to do traditional trace lines and shading, or matting and several other painting techniques to help you achieve different effects. The pieces will be fired over night so you can achieve multi layered work. You can add on an extra half day for the cost of £50.00 to learn about adding sliver stain or transparent coloured enamels to your work. Or an extra whole day for the cost of £100.00 to learn how to lead you work into a panel for a window, hanging or mirror.
The courses run from 10am-4pm on weekdays to suit when you can come as long as we are not booked up.
Please call or email with your possible available dates and we can book you in.
