'Art of Stained Glass' - Oldbury, Birmingham



Due to mixed enquiries, I have made separate listings for my courses. Kindly see my other listing for my other equally popular Painting Course. Course dates are flexible. And I usually have few slots available, please use the 'message the tutor' button to contact me for up to date availability of places. This course is suitable for those who want to learn the art of stained glass in a friendly manner. Learn how stained glass windows are leaded, in the company of a small relaxed group and for some time-out in the homely, informal setting of Jamal Rafay’s artist studio! A one day crash course covers: introduction, design for stained glass, introduction to medium, materials, glass cutting, glass leading etc. If you are interested to go further in a particular aspect of the craft for example, glass painting or drawing, then I adapt a tailor-made coaching approach to assist your own needs. No previous stained glass experience is necessary. A maximum of 2-3 participants per workshop in winters. Group workshops bigger than 3 participants are organised only in summers. Running workshops in small numbers allows a more personalised learning approach and environment. I am a professional stained glass artist. I have been making quality stained glass from my studio in Birmingham, UK. I've been into art for the last 26 years and in stained glass for the last 19 years. In the past, I have worked at John Hardman Studios (est. 1838) as stained glass designer. Now, I produce hand painted stained glass from my own little studio “Stained Glassic’’ (est. 2011) in Birmingham, UK.

What's included in the price?

A basic introduction to the craft with some of stained glass techniques are covered in the workshop. The beginners will learn the essential stained glass skills: An introduction will be provided to the design, drawing, glass cutting, leading and so on. All equipment and basic materials are provided to use during the course. You can bring your sketchbook or your rough doodles but it is not necessary at all. I usually provide different glass pieces that can be used in squares, circles or rectangles or random shapes fragments. This is for a one day workshop and to learn glass leading skills. In my painting workshops, glass is fired at the end of the session for a later collection. Please be aware the process of kiln firing takes some hours, so the finished piece can either be collected on a later day or I can also arrange a delivery at cost. But you are most welcome to take it with you, unfired on the same day. Templates and required glass tools are provided! You'll also be provide d gloves and aprons. You can also bring your own preferred or required materials if you like. Please do bring a packed lunch - I'll also provide tea, coffee and I can offer some cake or fruits according to the weather and availability! :) Please arrive by 8:55 am for a 9.00 am start... and I'll have the kettle on!
