Design and make your own leaded stained glass panel. Bring your own design and measurements and build your own bespoke window/ panel over two days.
Day One will be spent discussing your design, choosing and cutting your glass. Day Two will consist of leading, soldering and cementing and cleaning your completed panel before adding a hanging chain (if required).
Your panel will need to be maximum A3 in size (or equivalent surface area) and of no more than 25 pieces.
Glass, lead and solder are included in the course fee as well as use of hand tools, goggles/aprons/gloves, tallow, cement and hanging chain if required.
You will need to send a copy of your design and measurements to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than one week prior to the course date so that we can convert your design into a cutting pattern, ready to begin.
If you need assistance with a design, please let us know – and be copyright aware, your design may be influenced by stained glass work you’ve researched but must not be a direct copy.
We strongly advise taking a one day Stained Glass or Mosaic Day first to become used to the tools and techniques used over the weekend BUT if you fancy a challenge, don’t worry – we will also guide complete beginners throughout!
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
The art of stained glass uses sharp glass, chemicals and lead – please be aware that the course is NOT suitable for children under 16 years of age or if you are pregnant.
Stained glass work is intensive - if you have any health concerns, problems with balance, standing/sitting for long periods, or are affected by poor grip, please contact us before booking to discuss your needs.
You MUST wear sensible shoes in our studio – no open toes, sandals, flip flops etc. We reserve the right to ask a student to leave the class if correct attire is not worn, and/or if safety information is not adhered to. No refund will be given in this instance.
Traditional stained glass work uses tallow, therefore if you are vegetarian/vegan and would prefer not to use this on the day, please contact us before booking.
