I am a fine art graduate and winner of the 2019 Stevens Architectural Glass Artist of the Year Award. Also that year taking the craftsmanship award. I specialise in print on glass using traditional hand made materials and modern techniques to make unique works of art.
My print course will give a complete beginner the skills to print and kiln fire their own images on glass.
I also run more traditional stained glass evening courses as well as being available for 1-1 projects
"I'm a stained glass artist and I'd been wanting to learn how to screen print on glass for about 4 years but couldn't find the right course; if you're like me, then this is the right course.
It requires proper understanding of the many types of glass and glass paints/enamels to deliver this course and Jim clearly has years of experience. He is actively experimenting to push the methods as far as they can and he enthusiastically encourages you to start your own journey.
His course is very well planned to take you logically through the many stages of the process and he makes sure you're not struggling. I was really impressed to see how committed he was to ensure the students maximised their experience.
After two days I was so pleased with my images and feel confident to start making on my own.
"Before I took Jim’s course, I had been struggling for a while, trying to learn screen printing on glass by checking out YouTube videos and other sources. However, with this course everything came together and in a very short time I was creating beautiful images on glass consistently. James is a master of his craft and knows how to transmit the knowledge to his students in a very effective way. Highly recommended."
"Don't think about it, just book it! An excellent course full of information, tips and useful advice. Jim explained each step, checking that we had understood before moving onto the next stage. Each day was broken down into manageable chunks so that you weren't overloaded with information. I was amazed at how much stuff I did and very pleased with the results. The bonus was the lovely lunch served each day and the never ending supply of tea, coffee and biscuits! Go on, what are you waiting for!"
"This excellent course is very thorough, covering all aspects of choosing and formatting images to print, preparing the silk screens and finally cutting the glass and printing. James is an excellent and patient teacher. I was very happy with the results I produced during the two day course. I’m certainly planning on returning for a second class."
