The beginners stained glass course is designed for those who have little or no skills in cutting glass. The aim being to finish a piece roughly A4 size with 10-15 pieces of glass. There will be help with design, if necessary, and choice of colours. Students are taught to cut glass, use the grinders, tape up their pieces and then solder them together and finish with patina etc. The course is aimed to give a basic knowledge in using copper foil ( Tiffany style) to make items in stained glass so that the student should be able to continue to explore the medium on their own.
There are only 3-4 students on the course.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Lunch will be provided with coffee and biscuits at the appropriate times. Course materials are charged for at the end of the second day and usually amounts to £15-20, depending on the size of the piece.
2 days (10:00am to 4:15pm)

This course was our first attempt at Stained Glass. We were so pleased
that we chose Kingfisher Glass. The venue was in beautiful surrounds
and easy to find with the Sat Nav taking us straight to the door.
Our two days with Brenda were so enjoyable. Brenda is a first class Tutor
Her knowledge and patience was excellent. Brenda is a very friendly
lady with a sense of humour which made us as beginners feel very much at ease.
We had morning Coffee, lunch and afternoon tea and cake.
We was very pleased with what we achieved, bringing home our treasured
stained class pieces now hanging in our conservatory. I would definitely recommend Brenda and her courses.
Really enjoyed the course. Excellent tutition. Thank you. We are inspired now to continue with learning this craft further.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Set in an idyllic spot, even on wet November days! We had a grand time and were very well fed with homemade lunches. On top of that I created something rather lovely considering I'd not tried it before. I would definitely recommend Brenda's courses and I'm hoping to go on another one soon and learn a different technique.
Spent a rewarding 2 days in beautiful countryside, with a brilliant (and patient!) tutor, lovely surroundings and the opportunity to try something new. I achieved far more than I expected and came away with a stained glass panel I'm really proud of! Thanks Brenda!
