We had a most enjoyable day with Derek on the glass painting taster day. The course was in his well equipped studio. It was well organised and he patiently took us through the basic steps of traditional painting. He ensured we both ended up with a picture to be proud of. Now I just want a kiln to be able to carry on with this absorbing craft !!
