Description

*** 2023 DATES FOR THIS COURSE TO BE CONFIRMED *** PLEASE CONTACT US TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST This colourful workshop provides a perfect introduction to the creative and practical aspects of stained glass and is suitable for complete beginners. The focus is on learning basic skills such as cutting, grozing and soldering which can then be put into practice as students develop their own projects. Over the 2 days you will complete 2 or 3 small copper-foiled light catchers to take home. A choice of templates are provided with the option to design your own piece on day two if you wish. Lilian will take time during the course to advise you on designing specifically for stained glass so please do not plan too much in advance. Tutor: Lilian Shaw Lilian trained originally as a painter working in oils and pastels. Her love of light and colour led her to pursue a career as a stained glass artist. She founded her own studio in 1986. She has many varied commissions to her name both in the UK and abroad. These include pieces for private clients, churches and the National Trust. Lilian is an experienced and conscientious tutor with a genuine passion for her craft. Health & Safety This workshop involves the handling and soldering of metals (specifically lead, tin and copper).
