What will the course cover and how will it be taught?

With individual tuition to suit your needs and requirements, you will be taught how to cut glass safely, lead pieces into a panel, solder joints, assemble glass using copper foil, and how to paint and stain glass using silver stain and enamels. You’ll make a practice panel before embarking on an individual project and will be given advice on how to design a stained glass panel.
