Learn the techniques used make a stained glass window. On this two day course, you will learn the basics of this ancient art. Unline many stained glass courses, I only take a maximum of two students on this course, allowing you the chance for lots of individual tuition over the two days. All tools and materials are supplied within the cost along with a lovely choice of coloured and textured glass to select from.
I will take you on a step by step journey teaching you, whilst also setting you some challenges as you learn how construct a stained glass panel approximately 25 x 25 cm in size.
You will learn how to cut and break out curves and straight lines in glass accurately. Apply lead surrounds, solder, polish and cement your panel, teaching you techniques that will give you the confidence to go on and work on small projects independently.
Courses are held in my studio in Bognor Regis. Located in a beautiful, peaceful and flower filled setting, you will be surrounded by inspiration. Many of my students go on to produce individual projects following this course. Follow up courses or consultations regarding how to approach future projects can be arranged.
Stained Glass - Two Day intensive workshop

You will learn how to approach a design, measure, cut and handle glass safely. You will then select your design choice, colours and cut your coloured glass to size ready to assemble using lead. Once assembled, you will then solder, cement and prepare your panel for polishing.
