Beginners Stained Glass Course

This course aims to teach the basic techniques used in stained glass foil work. Unlike many adult education courses we run our classes on a 4 week cycle allowing students to be more flexible with their attendance and progress at their own pace. Students are able to work in an intimate environment where time with the course tutor is maximised and access to the equipment is optimised. allowing for faster progression with projects.
An initial project will be undertaken in the first 2-3 weeks from a design provided by the tutor. Having mastered the basics, students can then explore their creativity and practice their techniques on a project/ projects of their own choosing. The cost of consumable items (glass, solder and foil) is not included in the course fee. Cost per four week cycle £60 (payable in advance)
