5-day stained glass and fused course - Northants
Join experienced glass artists Jenny Timms & Mike Caddy for this 5-day creative workshop holiday at the Vitreus Art Studio near Towcester and Milton Keynes.
Our 5-day class will give you a thorough grounding in stained and fused glass and boost your creativity in an inspiring setting.
"Brilliant experience. Teaching very sensitive to needs of individual students. I learned such a lot in a relatively short time." Class attendee.
Ideal for beginners or those with some glasswork experience, the class begins with tuition using simple designs to gain the key skills - cutting, grinding, foiling or leading and soldering, tack fusing, slumping and more.
As your confidence builds, you’ll work on more challenging designs, or design a larger panel yourself - with guidance and encouragement throughout.
Whether you want to try fusing, leading, foiling, etching, or have a larger project in mind, you’ll find our course a fun and supportive environment in which to be creative.
The course takes place in a fully equipped working studio with tea rooms on site.
There's lots of space and light, and a huge variety of glass to work with, for your own designs or some of ours.
