Mosaic is an ancient artform which creates an overall design from multiple small pieces. You will use these techniques to create your own unique work. You will have a choice of two forms of mosaic:
- Stained glass applique is a cross between stained glass and mosaic. You will create your own design and produce it with glass on your panel. You will learn different methods for cutting glass and work with a great selection of coloured glass.
- Glass mosaic will have you working with small glass tiles which you will learn to cut and form into your own unique creative design which will be glued onto a a backing board.
For both methods, no experience is required and you will be led through all the steps to make your finished piece. For both techniques you will grout your piece to bring out the colour of your personal design.
This is a great introduction to either stained glass or mosaic and is a great way to start a new hobby that won't require lots of expensive tool purchases. If you have worked with stained glass and have lots of small pieces of coloured glass that you’ve always wondered what to do with, this is a great way of using them up!
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one day course with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. Gen was very welcoming and a joy to spend the day with sharing her knowledge and passion for all things glass. I felt that I learnt a great deal from Gen who was happy to answer my questions and guided me through each stage to complete a now treasured piece of glass work. I now feel ready to start my new creative path into working with glass in confidence with the skills Gen taught me. Thank you for an inspirational day!
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:Thank you for such lovely feedback. Good luck with your new creative path, and feel free to email me if you have any questions or need any advice.
I can not express how much I enjoyed my time with Gen at Wicked Gen Crafts. I found the course stimulating it was far better than I expected and I was looking forward to it. Gen is very knowledgeable and has a lovely manor when taking you through all the process stages. I highly recommend this course.
I also should say that the other students on the course, Trevor, Lynn, and Grey were a pleasure to spend time with.
Thank You Ian
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:Tuesday was a really fun day of teaching - lots of laughter from everyone whilst learning the different techniques of making a leaded stained glass panel. Thank you for coming on the course and thank you for your lovely feedback.
A fabulous day making a stained glass panel. The other three participants were good company and very supportive. Gen is an excellent teacher, knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging at all stages and I actually came away feeling proud of my panel but also with a clear understanding of the process. Lunch in the garden was fab!! Thanks for a great day - I feel inspired to do more.
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:Thank you Lyn for a lovely review and for being part of a really fun day of stained glass. I hope you feel inspired to continue with your creative activities and will come back for more glass learning.
An excellent day. Gen the tutor was knowledgeable and supportive in her teaching. All materials were supplied, lunch was lovely and the rest of the small group (just four of us) were all great. We each came away with a small stained glass window of our own making. A great introduction to the craft.
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:Thank you Trevor. I had a really great day with you too and I hope you have more creative fun making more panels of your own.
This was my 4th course with Gen and definately my most challenging but with a great deal of help and patience from Gen i love my finished piece .
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:Thank you for coming back for another course and I am glad I managed to challenge you some more! I hope to see you back again for another course sometime soon.
