Stained and Fused Glass | Thu 19 Jan to Thu 30 Mar | 6.30-8.30pm | £160 (10 wks) | 16+ yrs | Tutor Sarah Walkley | Studio 2

Learn all the skills required to make a stunning stained glass window and make beautiful objects out of kiln-formed glass including decorations and 3D objects.

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

Students will be taught how to cut glass safely, lead their pieces into a panel and solder the joints. They will make a practice panel before embarking on a project of their own choice and will be advised on how to design a stained glass panel.

Students can learn how to assemble glass using copper foil and how to paint and stain glass, using silver stain and enamels. Students may also learn the art of kiln-formed fused glass and have access to a specialist glass kiln to fire their pieces. They will be offered advice about how to make the best use of colour and how glass changes under heat. Students will be given individual tuition to suit their needs and requirements.

This class is suitable for beginners and those with experience who wish to improve their skills.

Important information

Please note there are no sessions during the week beginning 20 February 2023.

What do I need to bring?

Boards will be provided to make the practice panel. Following this, students will need to provide their own wooden board to work on, the size of which will be determined by the dimensions of the stained glass design but the tutor will advise on this.

All other tools and materials will be provided to complete a practice panel.

Participants need to wear closed shoes, no sandals, please.

Are there any additional costs?

Materials costs are in addition to the course fee and are payable to the tutor directly.

The cost of the practice panel is £15. Other material costs usually work out about £15 per square foot. Prices may vary according to the glass used.
