About the Course

Making Glass Stars for Christmas

On this one day course you will learn to make hanging copper foiled glass stars. You will have time to make three stars, varying in size from 11 - 19cm. If there is enough time, you can make additional stars, although there will be a charge for the extra materials. The course is a practical one and includes glass cutting, copper foiling and soldering.The day is suitable for any level of experience, including total beginners. All the materials and tools required for the course will be supplied. Included in the course fee are enough materials for one large, one medium and one small star.

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.
