About the Course
Stained Glass: Painting With Light
This course is suitable for all abilities since there will be time for everyone to learn or practise the appropriate skills they need to design and create at least one leaded stained glass panel.
Basic design concepts, different types of glass, glass cutting and leading techniques will all be covered so that you can design, assemble and finish at least one complete coloured panel during the week.
Carole Gray is a designer and maker of decorative stained glass, who uses many of the traditional techniques practised by stained glass artists over the centuries to create work which is highly contemporary and decorative. She also has extensive experience teaching these techniques.
Her own style of work is abstract and inspiration comes from a wide range of sources. Colour, repeating patterns and decorative motifs are a common theme throughout. Carole is as happy using strong, vibrant colours as with a cool, calm and restrained palette.
She is listed on the Crafts Council Register and a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and the British Society of Master Glass Painters.
Flatford Mill lies at the heart of the Dedham Vale, on the banks of the River Stour near the Suffolk-Essex border. The Centre buildings, particularly the Mill and Willy Lott’s House, are instantly recognisable since they feature in many paintings by John Constable. The rich mosaic of lowland landscapes, wildlife habitats and places of historic interest are all reflected in our extensive programme of courses. The Centre is located between Colchester and Ipswich and is about 10 miles from each, approximately 2 miles from the A12.

What's included in the price?
The fee also includes accommodation in your own room. Please enquire about the fees for shared room occupancy as well as non-residential rates (tuition only).
Tools and equipment (e.g. soldering irons, glass cutters and lead-cutting knives) are provided at the Centre and a selection of glass and other materials will be provided for students to buy from the tutor as required. Please expect to reimburse the tutor for the cost of materials you use, which will vary according to the size of panel you work on, but is likely to be between £30 and £50. Improvers are welcome to bring their own glass and lead if they wish, and should bring their own glass if they need a particular colour or style for their design.
