Glass Painting

Saturday 8th June

In this one-day workshop you will be introduced to basic techniques of painting on glass, as used by artists from the medieval period to the present day.  With our expert tuition you will practice using different brushes to produce different effects, and by the end of the day you will produce a painted piece to be fired.  If you also attend a glazing day, you will be able to incorporate your painted piece into a leaded panel.

“I really enjoyed the course, very friendly and informative”


Leading and Glazing

Sunday 9th June / Saturday 22nd June / Saturday 6th July

In this one-day workshop you will learn the basic techniques of cutting coloured glass to shape, leading and soldering the pieces to produce a simple but charming piece of stained glass.  If you have previously attending a painting day you will also be able to incorporate your painted piece into a leaded panel.

“Thank you for the brilliant day on Saturday. I had a great time making my fish!”
