This two day comprehensive workshop will teach you the ancient art of stained glass. Using traditional methods and materials, Jan will show you how to understand the techniques of design, construction and assembly of a small stained glass window. All materials and safety equipment are included within the cost with no hidden extras. With only two to a class, there will be plenty of one to one tuition throughout the two day course. You will use a selection of patterned, coloured and textured glass, to produce a 28 x 28 cm piece of stained glass art. During the course, we will work together, using a selection of designs supplied by the studio, through the processes of glass cutting, leading, soldering and cementing techniques. We will also discuss how to visualize, measure up and draw your own future designs. My studio is set in a beautiful, purpose built building ,set in lovely surroundings, near the Sussex Coast. We are easily accessible by Train and approximately 7 minutes from the Chichester Bypass Road. Your tutor, Jan, has worked with both stained and fused glass for more then 25 years. She has recently completed constructing and designing, with the help a small team, a series of large ecclesiastical commissions, including three stained glass windows for St Francis of Assisi's Roman Catholic Church in Ascot, depicting the life of various Catholic Saints. She has been teaching Leaded Light for over 20 years at Adult Education Level in both Sussex and Hampshire, and will offer additional private tuition days and more advanced one on one courses by arrangement. If you wish to book an alternative date from those published, please do contact me to discuss this. In addition, should you be coming from a distance I can sometimes offer basic B&B facilities for one guest at an additional cost. Full payment for courses is due on booking. Fees are non refundable within 60 days of your course unless we can fill your place.
