Try the beautiful craft of stained glass. Colourful, inspiring, and fascinating. The courses are aimed at beginner to intermediate level and are student led, that is you chose what you would like to make rather than being given a limited range of choices. This is the list of ongoing classes running at The Welsh Mill Hub, Park Hill Drive, Frome.
Stained Glass is an amazing craft, colourful, decorative and adaptable to many different forms. This course is student led, encouraging you to pursue the area of your interest. The course includes both "Tiffany" copper foiling and Leaded styles. There is also the provision for doing glass painting, silver staining and enamelling (such painted work needs to be fired after the class, for incorporation into a piece in a subsequent class or as a single piece which can be delivered). You can create panels, lamps or candle holders, clocks, mirrors, hanging pieces or set glass into a display stand. Bring your own ideas! You can contact to discuss by email the practicality of attempting a particular piece before the class.
If you are buying as a present for a loved one or friend then get in touch to discuss the details.
There are tea making facilities and toilets although you will need to bring your own packed lunch. Numbers are limited to 8 at the maximum so book ahead to ensure that you are able to get on the course. Children over the age of 9-16yrs can attend with an adult and are half price (£38). Due to the care needed when handling lead (particularly for children) I have specific arrangements and procedures in place to ensure full safety at all times.
