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.

Homely welcome coupled with excellent tuition - I recently attended the painted stained glass weekend course. Alison and Pete make you very welcome in their home with tea, coffee, delicious home cooked lunch and cake in the afternoon. The course is held in their home with a purpose built studio for the class. The tuition by Jane Littlefield on this course was excellent. Covered all the basics and provided all the support that was needed for all delegates. Thoroughly recommended.

Response from Zantium Studios Ltd:

Dear Linda,
Thankyou so much for your warm words. So glad you enjoyed the course and felt at home here. I will pass on your happy feedback to the lovely Jane Littlefield.
Best wishes Alison
