Stained Glass Two Day Workshop in the Lake District, Cumbria

Description

In the relaxed atmosphere of Hare Hill Barn, this practical two-day beginner's course is a great introduction to the wonderful craft of stained glass.  Guided by Nikki Clark, stained glass artist, you will learn the necessary steps and techniques involved in making a small stained glass panel (approx. 21cm x 21cm) including choosing and cutting glass, leading up, soldering and finishing your panel ready to be hung in your home.  No previous artistic experience is required as Nikki will provide a choice of designs as well as all essential tools and equipment. Your tutor, Nikki, has her own studio at her home in Gilcrux, West Cumbria and has over 20 years' experience in designing and making stained glass.  She also enjoys glass fusing and foiling, often incorporating these elements into her work, exploring texture, colour and light, and, apart from her own work, has completed several restoration projects for clients Accreditation:  HND Architectural Stained Glass, West Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education, Swansea (now the University of Wales Trinity St David). There will be an additional £30 materials cost payable directly to Nikki at the start of the course. Please note we are unable to offer this course to pregnant women and nursing mothers. This is a small class limited to 4 people. This Workshop will also be running earlier in the year on 20th/21st July.
