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.
