Contact course provider
About the Course
This is a course to introduce you into the amazing world of fired paint on glass.
Suitable for complete beginners and perfect for those who wants to bring their stained glass practice into another level.
On this course we'll cover the basis of working with glass paint: how to mix glass paint, various painting techniques, and kiln firing.
During the first day each student will have the chance to paint several tests to practice different techniques.
The second day we'll study the results and we'll paint a bigger project.
This last work will be fired overnight and can be collected the week after or you can arrange it to be posted to your home.
Small groups (max 5 students) for plenty of personal tuition.
Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 16:00, with a 30 min. break for lunch.
As we are working with lead based paint this course is not suitable for pregnant or nursing women.

What's included in the price?
You don't need to bring anything but wear comfortable clothes and closed shoes. If you have an old jumper or an overall, better.
Remember to bring your packed lunch (We have a microwave to heat it up). Other way you can buy some food nearby the studio (don't expect a delicatessen)
I will provide coffee, tea and biscuits during the session.

David created a great atmosphere for learning, experimenting and having fun. A steep learning curve for a beginner like me, but everyone achieved some vital and powerful works, through being encouraged to engage with their own creativity. David has so much experience and artistic integrity to pass on. Would love to do another week end.

Really enjoyed this course, David taught it really well with just the right measure of guidance and allowing you to make your own discoveries.
I have learnt some valuable new skills, just need to work on them now - I feel it has opened up a new area of hot glass work for me to try.
