This practical hands-on course is an introduction for beginners and will also welcome improvers who might appreciate the opportunity to expand their knowledge and develop their technique and creative ideas within a small group, under the supervision of an experienced tutor. Materials and methods will be introduced and skills taught to enable students to take home at least one finished piece of work.

By the end of the weekend you should be able to:

  • Draw a simple design and make a stained glass panel
  • Be fully conversant with health and safety procedures whilst working with glass
  • Cut glass in a confident manner and use a grinder to remove sharp edges
  • Use a soldering iron to solder onto the copper foil.
  • Finish your own unique piece of work
