Course Start Dates
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
This one day workshop in traditional stained glass work. You will learn the basic skills needed to create your own small panel- cutting and shaping glass, attaching lead came, soldering etc. At the end of the day you will have made a unique piece of your own stained glass to take home (see images). There is a selection of tried and tested patterns in the studio to choose from and you will get plenty of support in a small group of 4 or 5 students.
Please visit my website for details of various dates throughout the year.
What's included in the price?
All tools and materials are included in the cost and there is also a light lunch, snacks and hot drinks throughout the day.
Caryl is a patient, kind and generous teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with her and produced a slightly wobbly but lovely stained glass light catcher. Will be looking to visit her again to learn more and improve my technique very soon.
Had a great day with Caryl and 3 other stained glass novices. Only 4 of us meant that Caryl could spend lots of time helping us through the processes. We had quite a bit of practise time on plain glass before moving onto the real thing. I've never done anything like that before, but I really enjoyed it and felt supported right through to the end. Lunch was good (veggie and meat) and lots of teas/coffees throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend it and would like to do another one.
I had such a lovely time doing Caryl's stained glass course. She structured the day so well and there were only 4 of us so she was able to give us all plenty of attention. We all came away with a beautiful piece of leaded stained glass (around a mirror in a frame in our case) which was entirely achievable in the time we had. We were able to do our own designs, choosing the colours and types of glass we used and there were plenty of her own creations to see if we needed inspiration.
We were very well fed at lunch time (veggie and meaty) and throughout the day we were offered frequent teas and coffee with a snack in the morning.
Altogether it exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend it.
Had a fantastic day on this course. Caryl is a very good patient teacher. We came away with a fantastic stained glass piece. Her studios are amazing, will go back again. It was well worth the travel from Oldham to attend. Would recommend Caryl to anyone looking to try their hand, at stained glass.
I have just spent a wonderful day with my partner on Caryl's stained glass class. The whole course was well set out and was wonderfully delivered by Caryl, who was extremely knowledgeable, and helpful. The groups are small, which means that Caryl has plenty of time to assist people. A busy, fun, but relaxing day. Lunch was wonderful and at the end we all had a wonderful stained glass panel to take home with us. I would highly recommend this course. I am looking forward to joining Caryl for another of her courses soon.
I've just attended the Making a Stained Glass Leaded Panel workshop with Caryl. The course was very interesting and Caryl was extremely supportive on the day, helping with aspects of the design and construction of my leaded panel, giving lots of tips and insight and also being very understanding of my allergies by providing all the safety equipment I could need, making my day very comfortable. I would highly recommend Caryl's courses, she is a talented and passionate artist which is evident through the enjoyable course she delivers and the lovely glass panel you can take home at the end of the day after a bit of work yourself.
I've just completed a one day introduction to stained glass, making a lovely panel. As a complete beginner, this course was an excellent introduction to stained glass lead work. Caryl's easy going manner and friendly approach makes the day especially enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable and supportive, ensuring that you are not only learning and developing new skills,but also able to explore your own design ideas and apply these ideas to the process.
I would thoroughly recommend a course with Caryl and will definitely be coming back for more!
Thank you Caryl for your patience today - I had a fabulous time.
Just finished a course with Caryl, completing 2 stained glass panels. This was such a great experience - Caryl was very supportive, hugely knowledgable, friendly, and helpful throughout. It was amazing to leave with my first completed stained glass panels - it feels like I have started along a new path... Lunch was very tasty too!
Many thanks, Caryl.
I've been to several of Caryl's classes. Each time learning different techniques. I've loved every minute. As the classes are small, each student gets one to one help from Caryl, and I'm looking forward to more classes this year.
I attended the landscape class over 2 days . We really enjoyed the creative time spent on the pieces and learning all the processes involved in the making of stained glass. Caryl was very helpfull and patient and the 2 days were well structured and very informative. We all came away with lovely pieces that we will treasure for years to come .
I attended Caryl's course, along with two friends, to make Christmas decorations. As complete beginners it was quite amazing to come away with three very respectable pieces, of which we felt very proud. Caryl was so encouraging, with gems of ideas & advice, & her preparation for the day was impeccable, with all the necessary equipment to hand. We also enjoyed a deliciously healthy lunch!
I had a lovely day; doing something completely different, chatting, busy.... And came away with a beautiful panel. We were a very small group so Caryl had plenty of time to give to help each of us as and when we needed.
As a real beginner to stained glass work I found this course most enjoyable. Caryl's style is really relaxed and her guidance is clear and supportive. She helps you every step of the way and you end up with a beautiful glass panel to take home. The choice of glass was plentiful and all equipment top notch. You get a great lunch too!
I really enjoyed Caryl's course. The range of glass and equipment available for us to complete our project was excellent and we were given a good selection of patterns to choose from. Caryl was knowledgeable, patient and she helped us to achieve the aim of the day - a lovely traditional glass panel to take home. Lunch was excellent, too.
