About the Course

Combine traditional glass painting with lead work. You will create a small stained glass panel to take home and some samples. Open to both beginners and those with experience.

Day 1 – Learn the basics of stained glass painting using black/brown tracing colour. Experiment with mark making techniques such as shading, sgrafitto and applying texture. Learn how to cut glass safely and produce a simple design of your own made up of several pieces.

Overnight firing in the kiln

Day 2 – Assemble your panel using lead, joining the sections with solder. Apply glass cement; then clean and polish to finish.

Tutor: Jane Littlefield

Jane is a glass artist based in the Peak District. Her background is in Fine Art and Printmaking. She uses contemporary glass painting techniques, making marks and textures, so painting with light! She regularly exhibits her work, takes commissions and runs workshops.
