About the Course
Our weekend courses are suitable for both beginners and experienced students.
During a weekend workshop your Saturday will be spent learning about the craft and everything practical to make your first beginner's panel. Stephen will teach you how to use each tool as well as glass cutting, grinding, leading or foiling and soldering your piece together.
If you're already familiar with stained glass you can use your Saturday as a refresher time or simply to get your teeth into making your panel by picking one of our numerous designs.
Sunday will be dedicated to making something a bit more challenging so you can take home your second masterpiece.
Or you can opt to make a mirror A4 size inclusive of stained glass frame.
Whether you're a beginner who's never handled glass or someone who has approached this craft before Stephen will follow your every step and make sure you leave with a stained glass panel you'll be proud of.
Stephen is a stained glass artist who loves a modern approach and strives on creativity. He constantly challenges himself by thinking up new designs like the cube lamp, one of his most original creations.
He was a consultant on the making of the pilot episode for "Craft: I Made This" on Channel 4 in which show host Clemency Green built one of his original Terrariums.
He's also taken part in an an episode of "Crafty Beggars In The House" and made a demonstration piece for hosts Julie Peasgood and Wendy Turner Webster.
During the class you'll have the chance to pick from a vast selection of designs and choose either the leaded or foiled method.
Max 6 people per class. This allows you to have a more personal learning experience as Stephen will be able to follow your progress and teach on a more one-2-one basis.
