About the Course

Make a stained glass panel in a day at Flatford Mill, run by the Field Studies Council. Open to all levels - 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

This day course gives an opportunity to explore this traditional craft and to make for yourself a 20cm square stained glass panel.

The tutor will provide simple, non-representational designs and packs of glass for you to choose from. All the other materials and tools you will need to complete your panel are also provided.

Carole Gray is a designer and maker of decorative stained glass, who uses many of the traditional techniques practised by stained glass artists over the centuries to create work which is highly contemporary and decorative. She also has extensive experience teaching these techniques.

Her own style of work is abstract and inspiration comes from a wide range of sources. Colour, repeating patterns and decorative motifs are a common theme throughout. Carole is as happy using strong, vibrant colours as with a cool, calm and restrained palette.

She is listed on the Crafts Council Register and a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and the British Society of Master Glass Painters.

Flatford Mill lies at the heart of the Dedham Vale, on the banks of the River Stour near the Suffolk-Essex border. The Centre buildings, particularly the Mill and Willy Lott’s House, are instantly recognisable since they feature in many paintings by John Constable. The rich mosaic of lowland landscapes, wildlife habitats and places of historic interest are all reflected in our extensive programme of courses.

The Centre is located between Colchester and Ipswich and is about 10 miles from each, approximately 2 miles from the A12.
