This is a one day course ideal for beginners who want to try their hand at glass painting. In the morning we work on a flat piece of glass to create a sun catcher. In the afternoon we work on a jar to create a tea light holder. We use glass paints (both alkyd and water based) and painting pens.
The paint is set by baking in an ordinary oven. Work can be varnished if time permits.

This is an excellent course in glass painting for beginners, with all materials supplied. The class size is reasonably small, Polly's tuition is clear and comprehensive, and she is really supportive of everyone attending. There is a lovely, friendly and relaxed atmosphere in her studio and I thoroughly recommend the course.
Response from Steephill Studio and Gallery:Thank you so much Gill! Really glad you enjoyed it.
I have never done any glass painting before but the course was fun and instructive. Polly is a friendly and supportive teacher who encouraged us to enjoy ourselves and helped everybody. I came away with 2 glass painted pieces that I was really happy with and lots of useful information to help me start doing it at home.
