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 given advice 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 complete beginners as well as those with experience who wish to improve their skills.
Please note there are no classes during weeks beginning 25 October and 15 November.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring gloves and safety goggles.
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 will be provided and the materials to complete a practice panel.
Students 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. The cost of other materials according to what is used. This usually works out at about £15 per square foot. Prices may vary according to the glass used.
