Traditional Stained Glass Painting for Beginners: A Two Day Workshop
Contact course provider
About the Course
This 2 day stained glass painting workshop in Shrewsbury is structured to cater for different levels of beginners, including complete beginners. It's a brilliant opportunity to learn or develop a range of traditional painting techniques that were practised by the craftsmen back in the earliest years of creating stained glass windows in Europe. Please read the schedule below for a further insight into what to expect over the 2 days.
Day 1 -
9:30am - 5:30pm
you will explore, with the most creative approach to traditional, kiln-fired, stained glass painting, the making of glass paint paste, applying it and texturing onto glass.
Day 2 -
9:30am - 5:30pm
You will practice the glass painting skill of tracing, where you will select and work from a range of patterns and light/pale coloured glass provided. You will select a pattern of your choice and create a piece using all of the skills you were introduced to. At the end of the day, your final pieces will be fired over night using my kiln. There will also be a theme to the workshop which will be decided once I have an idea of who is participating.
No prior glass experience is necessary!
The studio is located in Shrewsbury town centre within walking distance from the bus and train station. For parking, there is the Abbey public car park 1min walk away from the studio.

Nathalie had prepared her teaching sessions well with photographs she had taken especially for us to work from during the first day and materials set out ready for us on our tables. She took care to explain the processes thoroughly and then helped us to put into practice what we had learned, tactfully suggesting ways we could enhance our work as we went.
Nathalie was friendly and welcoming and took trouble to ensure that we enjoyed the course. An excellent two days!

Nathalie has a lovely teaching manner, she is passionate and patient and obviously an extremely talented artist. It was really interesting to learn the different techniques for applying the paint to the glass and how to create different effects. I was just sad when it ended! A great 2 day course!

I gained so much from working with such an experienced artist as Nathalie. She is so much more than an artisan and opened my eyes to the magic of working on glass. She is patient, encouraging and generous in her teaching. I learnt so much and had fun too in the magical place that is the couleurlive studio.
