Make a Stained Glass Panel in a Day

X

Description

This day course gives you the opportunity to explore this traditional craft. During the day you will make a 20cm square stained glass panel. This is a practical course where you learn the basic construction processes of cutting glass, putting a panel together with lead, soldering, cementing and finishing. There will be a choice of simple, non-representational designs and packs of glass provided by the tutor. All the other materials and tools you will need to create your panel are also provided. Due to time constraints, students will not be able to design their own patterns. Carole Gray is a designer maker, specialising in decorative and contemporary architectural stained glass. She mainly works to commission, producing windows, doors and other pieces for private and commercial clients. 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.
