About the Course

1 Space left for 2nd February 2019

Learn the basic skills of stained glass (leaded lights) in a day and leave with your 20cm square panel to keep. Maximum three people (reductions available for group booking).

! Not suitable for children or pregnant women !

The course is taught in a small dedicated stained glass studio, at our rural home, all the tools and materials are provided to learn the basic skills of stained glass so that by the end you will have created a small panel from a template to keep. You will learn something of the history of the technique, and Iain will be on hand throughout to help you. As well as your panel, you will leave with hand-outs providing information should you want to continue this wonderful hobby.

Stained glass is the technique you see in many front doors, hallways, and churches, with lead strips forming the join between different pieces of glass. If you want eventually to make a front door panel or window, or just a nice small panel on the day that can hang inside a window, this is the course for you.

The same course is available over two evenings - see website for details.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Everything to make your panel is provided, including all materials, and use of tools. Just bring a packed lunch, closed-toe shoes, an apron or clothes you don't mind getting messy, and your enthusiasm!

Thanks to Iain's expert guidance, tuition skills and patience I created my first piece of lead stained glass, which I am pleased to say that I am very proud of!
The day was a thoroughly informative, relaxed and interesting introduction to the many skills required to make a leaded stained glass panel.
I enjoyed the day and had a fantastic experience.

I attended this course with a friend in April 2018. It was her retirement present and what a fantastic day we had.
The course is really enjoyable and everything is explained and demonstrated brilliantly. The small class size allows time to be spent with each individual as needed. The finished product is lovely and although we over ran, we didn’t feel rushed and our window/sample was finished on the day!

A wonderful experience that I would HIGHLY recommended.

A wonderful way to spend a day - creating a beautiful, colourful and professional looking panel to take home and hang in a window. I am very pleased with my panel and it is already in a window shining splashes of colour on my room!
Iain is helpul and informative and guides you through the different processes involved with patience and a smile.
Excellent value and a great experience!

Response from Blue Kite Stained Glass:

Thanks Clare, glad you enjoyed it, you all produced great work, well done!

I had an excellent day with Iain. It was a gift from my husband for a special birthday. I have always been interested in glass and Iain was very informative so I learnt a lot. Many things that I had not thought about before. I will now look at a pieces of stained glass with new eyes, not only recognising their beauty but also really appreciating the amount of work that goes into them. Iain is a great tutor and very patient. I would highly recommend this course.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day learning to make stained glass. Iain is very patient & knowledgeable. I was with the previous reviewer and her husband I totally agree with her comments. I feel confident enough to be able to start doing this as a hobby! Thanks for a brilliant day.

I booked this course for me and my husband to have a taster into Stained Glass. Ian was very informative and made the day relaxing and fun. We both learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend it. The course was easy to book, and Ian provided a good amount of detail prior. The course only involves a maximum of 3 people so you have Ian's attention and help to guide you through the day and we were both pleasantly surprised at the item we both made. Well worth the money.
