About the Course
Renowned stained glass artist Derek Hunt has teamed up with the super talented glass artist Amanda Winfield to bring you "Limelight Studios Glass School" where you will learn key aspects of the craft of stained glass, including glass choosing and cutting, painting and leading your panel.
At the end of the three days you will have made your own stained glass panel to take home and have the skills needed to continue your journey in glass. We pride ourselves in creativity and encourage you to come with a few ideas of what you would like to make. Do get in touch if you want to talk over your ideas and we’ll help set you on the road to discovery!

Hi Derek and Amanda,
I want to express my biggest gratitude to both of you. Ever since I booked the course two months ago from South Korea, I have been excited and looking forward to it. Your course managed to instantly make me forget about my tiredness and jet lag from a long haul flight. I was filled with hope and joy each day of the course, and the final result was a vision come true.
It was also an incredible opportunity to meet and learn from Amanda in person, especially after having followed and admired her artwork through discovering her on Instagram many months ago. This course has guided me through my first formal experience with the glass panel paintwork, and I truly appreciate your technical skills and expertise. I couldn’t recommend your course enough to fellow beginners as I express my sincere gratitude for your patient guidance and professional warmth.

"This 3 day course was truly inspiring. I went from knowing nothing about stained glass to turning the ambitious, complicated design I had chosen into a finished panel that I am delighted with - all in those 3 days.
I learned so much about all the processes and was taught how to apply them in a very practical, hands-on way. I absolutely loved the whole experience.
Very friendly group, excellent workshop with everything one needed and great teaching. Thank you." John

"What a fantastic glass course! After 3 days of intensive learning and beavering away, I came home with a completed A3 size stained and fused glass panel, of which I am immensely proud.
I am not artistic, but Amanda and Derek are such amazing, patient teachers, that they enabled me to complete exactly the panel I wanted.
I recommend whole-heartedly this glass course for everyone." Jill
