Stained & Fused Glass | Thu 25 April to Thu 4 July | 6.30-8.30pm | £160 (10 wks) | 18+ yrs | Tutor Sarah Walkley | Studio 2

This course is designed to teach students all the basic techniques used in stained and fused glass with a view to students designing and making their own pieces. This is a practical course, suitable for complete beginners as well as those with experience.

What will the class cover and how will it be taught?  
During this course you will be taught how to cut pieces of glass and assemble them into a panel using lead. You will learn how to join the lead using solder. Once the basic techniques have been understood, students will be free to design and make their own creations.
There will also be opportunities to learn how to make smaller items using the copper foil technique and also a chance to try glass fusing. Students can also try their hand at glass painting, an advanced technique.

Who is it suitable for? 
Suitable for all levels from complete beginners to more experienced.

Important Information 
There is no session on the 30 May.

What do I need to bring?  
You don’t need to bring anything, all tools and materials are provided for the first 2 sessions. After that, students can buy their own materials if they wish (Sarah will provide a list of suppliers) or they may use Sarah’s materials and pay her directly.

If you have any queries regarding materials, please contact our box office team who can put you in touch with the artist tutor:

Are there any additional costs?
