Come and learn the medieval craft of stained glass in my studio set in the beautiful Sussex countryside. Using traditional materials and techniques, together with comprehensive tuition, make a small stained glass window to take home.
Tutor Issy Brunsdon has been a stained glass artist for more than twenty years, working on commissions for houses and ecclesiastical buildings. I currently also teach stained glass to students of various levels at a further education college.
The day starts at 9.30am and finishes around 5-6pm
Maximum 4 students per class
This one day introductory course will enable you to produce an A4 size leaded stained glass panel. There will be informal discussions, lots of hands on practice and comprehensive tuition. An assortment of patterns will be provided for your project or if you wish, you can bring your own. Have a look at the work by some of my previous students to get an idea of possibilities.
I will teach you how to cut glass, practicing on clear glass, before choosing a variety of colours and
textures for your panel from my wide stock of glass.
We will break for lunch at 1.00pm.which will be provided.
After lunch I will teach you the process of ‘ leading up’ and soldering. Finally I will demonstrate the
cementing and finishing process. As this can be quite time consuming, depending on the time I can complete this part for
you, allowing the cement to dry, before the panels are ready for collection or delivery.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials are included. I also provide a light lunch and tea/coffee etc.
