Two days traditional stained glass for beginners


About the Course

Based in Herston, a hamlet sitting in a sheltered spot alongside Widewall Bay in South Ronaldsay, one of the beautiful islands that make up the county of Orkney. I have been making stained glass panels inspired by the Orkney scenery, nature and culture for the past 12 years and would like to share my passion with both locals and visitors to Orkney.

Join me for a fun filled two day course to learn the skills and use glass, lead and tools to make your own stained glass panel. The course is suitable for ages 15 and over, and will suit all artistic abilities. You will have a creative and fun time ending with a great sense of satisfaction as you show off your work, ever afterwards!

I will demonstrate the techniques and work with you to create a design for your panel, show you how to cut the glass and lead, pin out the design for soldering, then grout and polish. You will have a wonderful memento from your day, together with notes and tips for continuing your new skills at home.

The course is available all year round and is designed on a one to one basis, but if you would like to come along with a friend/partner the workshop can comfortably accommodate 2 students. There is a 25% discount on the course price for two attendees (£150.00 pp).

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials, safety equipment etc, and refreshments provided. Just bring a packed lunch, comfortable clothing and shoes, (no open toed sandals!). If the weather is good we can eat lunch outside and watch out for seals.

Parking space available. Pickup from public transport can be arranged.
