About the Course
Why not get creative and learn the art of stained glass?
The course is suitable for the beginner or those with some experience who would like to brush up on their skills. The course covers, glass cutting techniques for safe and accurate glass cutting, leading, soldering and finishing techniques. We have lots of designs available for you to use for your first project. Using one of our set designs does give you a chance to learn all of the basic techniques before you try your hand at your own design but if you particularly want to make something to your own design we will do all we can to make it feasible within the timescale.
The workshop runs over two days (usually Sat/Sun). We use venues around Northumberland including Whittingham, Longframlington & Rothbury. Many of our students make their glass workshop part of a holiday in Northumberland as there are lots of lovely places to stay in our beautiful county (You can find some recommendations on our website or email us for more).
Dates ongoing throughout the year. See our website for more information or visit our facebook page - The Glass Barn Studio

Materials are not included in the course fee but can be purchased as you need them at the class. To give you a rough idea materials for a starter panel usually cost in the region of £20 depending on the glass you choose to use.
A christmas gift from my wife, after I had mentioned I would like to try making some stained glass items for our new 1930's home.
Although I had some experience, the class I was with had a variety of knowledge levels but Dawn and Jan were very attentative and specific to every individual.
I managed to make two items which are now proudly hanging up in our bay windows and we very much enjoy them, even more as I have made them myself.
If you have any interest in attempting any sort of stained glass activity I highly recommend!

A really enjoyable two day course, Dawn and Jan are great teachers, they explained all techniques with great skill and patience. As a total beginner in stained glass making, I was very pleased with the end results and if I lived nearer would definitely attend other classes. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in stained glass making, I loved it. Thanks to Dawn and Jan for making it such an excellent experience.

My husband and I attended this course as part of a wedding present and we absolutely loved it!! Jan and Dawn are both great teachers. They take great care in introducing you to the art of stained glass and are both patient and knowledgable. We both can't wait to sign up for another course to get some new designs made as presents for family. We both cannot recommend The Glass Barn Studio 2 day workshop enough! One of the best courses we have ever attended :)

I attended this two-day weekend course as a complete beginner and I loved it. Dawn and Jan are both very patient, knowledgeable and attentive teachers. The atmosphere was relaxed and congenial and the end result (a glass panel) looks great. Very rewarding.

Booked this as a Christmas gift for the wife, and I also attended. Great patience as teachers with a knowledge that extends due to their vast experience. Which does help as a novice when things go wrong. Loved the final results for the projects we made. Will be looking to book another in the future. Thanks to both Jan and Dawn.

I recently attended the two day workshop held at the end of March and had a great time. I was a complete beginner but both Jan and Dawn took time to explain the various techniques involved and demonstrated examples. I managed to complete two panels by the end of the 2 days, which I'm very pleased with. I will definitely be signing up for another course and would highly recommend the workshop.

Had a brilliant weekend learning a new skill. Dawn and Jan are great teachers, very patient and willing to pass on their extensive knowledge. Left feeling I had achieved something and with a glass panel which I now use as an internal window and a lovely light catcher both of which attract many compliments.

I loved the weekend. Really felt that I learned new skills and it was a great feeling of accomplishment being able to bring pieces of finished work home. I've got the bug and will be back for more.
