This day course gives you the opportunity to explore this traditional craft. During the day you will make a 20cm square stained glass panel.
This is a practical course where you learn the basic construction processes of cutting glass, putting a panel together with lead, soldering, cementing and finishing.
There will be a choice of simple, non-representational designs and packs of glass provided by the tutor. All the other materials and tools you will need to create your panel are also provided. Due to time constraints, students will not be able to design their own patterns.
Refreshments and lunch will be served in the Mill dining room and are included in the fee.
If you require accommodation before or after the course, please contact Flatford Mill and we’ll try to help.
Tutor: Carole GrayCarole Gray is a designer maker, specialising in decorative and contemporary architectural stained glass. She mainly works to commission, producing windows, doors and other pieces for private and commercial clients.
