The 2-day stained glass course is designed for total beginners to design & create a stained glass panel (30cm x 30cm, with 15 - 20 pieces of glass). I ensure the course is fun, while also giving you the chance to learn a new skill.
During the first day, you'll create a design, then cut & paint the glass. We usually provide designs / patterns, but you can also bring your own. We can discuss your design & ideally have it prepared before the course starts.
On the second day, you'll learn how to do the leadwork, soldering, cementing, and then brushing & polishing the glass. Finally, you'll fit the chain & you can take your stained glass panel away with you.
I keep the stained glass classes small, to make sure it's easy to give everyone as much input as is required. There is a 2m gap between all work-stations, to help maintain social distancing. We also provide visors (or you can wear your own mask), and there is lots & lots of hand sanitiser. All equipment & materials are disinfected before the start of each day.
You don't need to bring any materials, as everything required to design & create the stained glass panel is provided. The only thing you need to wear are closed shoes (e.g. no sandals), and to bring some lunch. We can also arrange lunch at a small cost, if required.
If you need to self-isolate, or new Covid restrictions are introduced, your course can be rescheduled.
Timings: 10am - 4pm each day
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials required to create your own stained glass panel, tea & coffee.

I had a lovely time with Cass at the glass fusion workshop. I was the only person there so I had Cass’s full attention which was great since I had never done anything like this before. I’m really looking forward to receiving my finished piece, and would love to do something similar in the future,
I attended this two day course on 8th & 9th February 2020 and I really enjoyed it. There were only two of us with our instructor Cass, and I made two pieces of stained glass, never having done this before. Cass is a talented artist and a very good teacher. The class was informal and friendly and I learned a lot in a short space of time. Cass is very patient and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this class for beginners or a refresher course. Helen.
