COVID update - Fortunately the workshop is very spacious, well ventilated and naturally sunlit making it ideal for socially distanced classes!!! I also will be running the classes with smaller numbers to ensure really good spacing (3 metre+) and will be asking all attendees to wear masks, hand sanitise and we wear safety specs normally anyway! Obviously if you are shielding then a group class is not an advisable idea at the moment.
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 on some dates for doing kiln fired glass painting, silver staining and enamelling. You can create panels, lamps, 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.

The classes normally take place on the last weekend of each month. A beginners day on the Saturday and a returners/prior experience class on the Sunday (however family/private groups can be arranged on a convenient day, be it weekend or weekday please see my other listing). The numbers are limited and classes fill up quickly so get in touch to book your place.
These leisure based courses are run in the newly established Devon Applied Arts Workshop ("DAA Workshop" for short!) between Exeter and Tiverton. Set in rolling fields, the space is disabled access friendly.
There are tea making facilities and toilets although you will need to bring your own packed lunch.
Children over the age of 9-16yrs can attend with an adult and are half price (£45). 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.
Classes continue end of each month throughtout 2021
Note that I run other private classes on a demand basis. Check my other listing on this craft courses site for these private classes ( 'See more from this course organiser' link below). If you wish to book as a present for a loved one please do contact me directly to check on availability of dates prior to any booking or voucher purchase.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Course fee of £105 (£50 for children attending with a paying adult) covers a one day class. Materials for a piece around A4 size and tools are provided (additional charge may be made for "epic" projects, or special materials but will be discussed fully in advance). Returning students pay a reduced rate of £75 plus materials as used (so small projects are inclusive but bigger ones have a surcharge).
Please bring your own Stanley knife and an apron if you prefer your own, wear warm "workshop" clothes, no fluffy jumpers (tend to catch fragments). No open toed sandals or shoes.
The course is not suitable for pregnant women or for students who are not capable of following the safety and instruction guidance.
If you already have tools from doing glass classes previously please mark them in some way before bringing them. It can be a good idea to bring a board or something to take your piece home on/in. Also a tool box/plastic box/large Tupperware box is a good idea to keep any glass pieces safe if you are planning to attend a number of classes.
Tea and coffee is provided but if you prefer do bring your own thermos flask. Please also bring your own packed lunch.
