About the Course
Join a two day stained glass workshop at Dillington House, Somerset, with Jackie Hunt.
Come and try your hand at this traditional craft—all materials and tools provided; no experience needed; small groups ensure personal attention; everyone will leave with a finished panel.
Stained Glass is an ancient art of using colour and light to create atmosphere and to depict images and stories. Traditionally, stained glass windows tend to be associated with cathedrals, churches and country houses, but these days stained glass is also often used in homes for decoration.
This course will enable you to create your own stained glass panel using the traditional method of combining coloured glass with lead. The panel you make will be suitable to either build into a window or frame as a hanging panel.
The course involves working with coloured, clear and textured glass; learning how to handle and cut glass safely and to 'lead up' a panel.
No experience is needed. This is an informal workshop with a small number of participants and there will be demonstrations and practical help throughout. If you have some experience of making stained glass you can use this course as an opportunity to improve your skills.
The tutor Jackie Hunt is a professional stained glass artist. She has a design training as well as specific training in architectural glass and has taught workshops and evening classes for more than twelve years in Dorset, Somerset, Yorkshire and Cumbria.
