MAKING STAINED GLASS – 5 DAYS

Click here for Course Information.

This well-structured course is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in stained glass design and making for 5 consecutive days.

It’s perfect for those who have done some stained glass before, maybe a weekend or short course, and would like to make their own panel but still require guidance and help.

This 5 day course is also an excellent opportunity for those who have some experience but need space and tools to make their own panel.

If you are a complete beginner with no experience at all, you are welcome to join this course if you have a specific project in mind.  However attending a weekend taster course first is recommended.

You will have access to Jude’s extensive stained glass design and making experience throughout the whole of the course with tutorials, demonstrations, hands-on making, one-to-one tuition and lots of insight and useful information.

You will need to give some thought to your panel design prior to attending the course and prepare some colour sketches or designs to bring along.  If you are making a panel to install in an existing window or for a specific location, the design ideas and the size of the panel will need to be approved before the start of the course.  It must be feasible to complete the panel in 5 days.

This course is perfect if you have previously attended a one or two day class as it will help you gain confidence and deepen your understanding of stained glass skills.

Areas covered include:

– Designing and Pattern-making for Stained Glass
