PAINTING, STAINING & FUSING FOR STAINED GLASS 

This course is ideal for beginners and those who have done some stained glass (even just a one day course) but have little or no experience of using these applied techniques.  It is an opportunity to broaden your knowledge and explore the traditional techniques of painting and staining together with the contemporary technique of fusing glass specifically for inclusion into stained glass panels.

Students will make several glass samplings and pieces throughout the course and will be involved in actual kiln preparation and firings.

The course covers a mix of technical & creative aspects of these techniques including:

-preparing paint and stain

-mixing with water and oil

-working with paint wet and dry

-glass selection for staining

-kiln preparation and programming

-firing cycles
