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

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

Participants will learn how to design a stained glass panel, cut glass safely, lead their pieces into a panel, solder joints, assemble glass using copper foil, and paint glass using silver stain and enamels. The expert tutor will advise participants on how to make the best use of colour and how the glass changes under heat.

The art of kiln-formed fused glass will also be taught, with access to a specialist glass kiln to fire individual pieces.

Individual tuition will be offered to suit specific needs and requirements.

Important information

There are no sessions 15 Feb

What do I need to bring?

Boards and all other tools and materials will be provided to complete a practice panel. Students will need to provide their own wooden board to work on their individual stained glass designs. The tutor will advise on dimensions.

Please wear closed shoes, sandals are not permitted. Safety goggles and gloves are recommended to ensure your safety when using glass.

Are there any additional costs?
Material costs are in addition to the course fee and are payable to the tutor directly. Material costs vary depending on the size of the design and the type of glass used but usually work out at ~£15 per square foot.
