Explore the exciting potential of screen printing your own images onto glass with a award winning glass artist in a safe environment
Some of the following safety measures for this course include.
Cutting the student number by half from 4 down to just 2. This should give you even more 1-1 tuition time and we should be able to dive even deeper into the process.
We will be working in a studio space 9m x 4m. Each student will have a dedicated 2m x 1m workbench which will be disinfected daily.
The course will now run from one dedicated site with direct access from the street.
The studio has its own student toilet and hand sanitiser station
Gloves and masks available and included.
Students bring their own food and drink. Tea and coffee will be available in takeaway cups.
This two day course offers a comprehensive introduction into screen printing your images onto glass. Demonstrations cover selecting suitable imagery, coating a screen with photosensitive emulsion, screen-printing techniques with enamels and paints. We will have access to a professional print studio and support from their highly experienced technicians. We will also use a professional stained glass studio for a printing and firing.
By the end of the course you will have created several unique glass printed pieces and gain a good understanding of screen-printing onto glass and details of the types of equipment and materials required.
Aimed for both beginners and those who already have access to kilns and want to learn how to screen-print onto glass using different types of imagery. No previous glass or print experience required.
The course is limited to 2 students so plenty of support throughout the course. 1-1 sessions also available.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Including lunch all equipment and materials. We print on clear glass. If you want to bring your own coloured glass to print on that is fine. Please make sure it is flat and smooth :) I also keep a small stock of coloured glass which you can buy at cost.

Don't think about it, just book it! An excellent course full of information, tips and useful advice. Jim explained each step, checking that we had understood before moving onto the next stage. Each day was broken down into manageable chunks so that you weren't overloaded with information. I was amazed at how much stuff I did and very pleased with the results. The bonus was the lovely lunch served each day and the never ending supply of tea, coffee and biscuits! Go on, what are you waiting for!
This excellent course is very thorough, covering all aspects of choosing and formatting images to print, preparing the silk screens and finally cutting the glass and printing. James is an excellent and patient teacher. I was very happy with the results I produced during the two day course. I’m certainly planning on returning for a second class.
Fantastic course, would highly recommend. Jim is very knowledgable in his craft and is very willing to share with those in the class. Very patient and willing for everyone to get involved in every step of the process. Classes were intimate and friendly. Wouldn't be able to recommend enough. Thanks Jim!
Very good workshop - Jim is very knowledgeable, both in terms of preparing material for screenprinting and in making screens and applying the screens to glass. He is very organised and the workshop ran very smoothly. He is also a patient teacher and was very generous with his time and know-how. I was amazed by how many items I managed to make over the two-day period. It was both enjoyable and rewarding and it even included a scrumptious lunch!
Very well run workshop. James is a highly skilled artist but also a calm and helpful teacher. As I am already a screenprinter I particularly appreciated all the helpful tips on producing great images to translate onto the screens. James was generous with his know-how and super patient. I was truly delighted with my finished pieces.
This course is fantastic! Jim is a really great and patient teacher and made a huge effort to get the best out of all of us, regardless of our printmaking experience. I took the weekend course after not having printed in any medium since school and still came home with some lovely prints. Jim is very open in giving advice and sharing his personal tips and trips for getting the most out of screenprinting on glass. The classes are intimate and you get a lot of chance for input from Jim on the course. Definitely would recommend to new and experienced printmakers alike.
This is a fantastic course for anybody interested in this medium, I decided to sign up for it after having attended Jim`s Monday night course. Jim is a great teacher and takes you through the whole process over the weekend. It's fantastic to see your ideas come to life and finally appear on the glass. The course was great fun and it was a pleasure meeting the others on the course and I would highly recommend this, you won't regret it.
This was an excellent course, from total beginners to more experienced glass artists, all abilities are catered for.
You will be taught everything you need to know to produce some amazing prints on glass. We were taken through choosing images to how to make your own individual screen. Tea, coffee etc and lunch is included, yum yum!
The studio is in the garden with views over a green.
We booked as a couple and my partner (total novice) and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days.
If you get a chance to do this course you won’t regret it. Highly recommended.
A really enjoyable two days with Jim. Thorough and fun, I came away with both practical advice and some beautiful bits of work.
Ideal for people who want to gain knowledge to take their practice further or just even as a treat to come away with a piece of work.
Lovely studio and very hospitable. The main take away for me was Jim’s generosity of sharing his knowledge that otherwise would take many, many months of trial and error for the inexperienced.
I attended this course this year and was thoroughly inspired. James has a calm and knowledgeable teaching approach and is very patient! The course has provided me with all the tools I need to practice on my own one day. Great setting and host. I look forward to attending the next one!
I attended this course and learnt so much about producing images on glass. The course takes you through the selection of an image, making a screen to completing the printing on glass and so much more. It was amazing. I have some experience with glass but would recommend it to all. Jim, the tutor, provided excellent teaching and answered all the questions I had. It was a small and friendly studio and I highly recommend it.
This 2 day screen printing on glass course was a very last minute find for me...and oh boy!! am i pleased to have spotted it. Screen printing on glass is pretty specialist stuff and not easy to get your head around. However, Jim made this so clear and direct, explaining repeatedly if any of us didn't understand the first time. He is definitely up for having his brain well and truly picked, and we did.😁. I loved making my own screen to take home and use again, (Jim explained all the screen options before the day). My reason for going was to learn this technique to use again in my own art works, others just wanted to produce some finished pieces. So all in all, a fabulous 2 day course, if you want to give it a go, Jim is the man. One other thing, lunch (home made soup etc) and snacks, coffee and tea, there were aplenty! Yum!!
I would certainly recommend #Haltglass to all.
I have recently been on the excellent course run by Jim at Halt Glass. I researched screen printing courses in UK for a long time & finally found one that ticked all the boxe ! This course takes you through the whole process in very pleasant surroundings, in a small group & with great results. I've been practising as a stained glass craftsman/artist for approx 25 years and I genuinely feel excited about the new skills I've learned on this course & I can't recommend it highly enough .
A nice relaxed atmosphere & a great lunch also helps :-}
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and thought it was good value. I learned a lot, and I particularly appreciated being able to produce more than one finished, fired piece of glass. The opportunity to make several enabled us to practice the skills we were learning, and refine them. The atmosphere was friendly and positive and the food was good as well. I will be doing further courses with HALT Glass and can wholeheartedly recommend them.
