There is an emphasis on practical learning through the creation of your own stained glass panels.
In consultation with the teacher, you will design a stained glass panel that you will execute throughout the term. There will be lessons on different techniques to help you extend your skills.
Throughout the course, the teacher will work with students in groups and one-to-one at the different stages of the process.
