An introduction to traditional glass painting & staining
"Wonderful weekend immersive course that really teaches you the fundamentals of stained glass.
Jude is an excellent instructor who not only outlines the steps in a clear fashion, she also explains the techniques, concepts and history behind the art of glass work in great detail. By the end of the weekend, I felt I learned enough to begin making my own stained glass at home (after purchasing materials of course).
The classes are intimate with only a few students, so personalized attention is given throughout the course. Creative freedom is encouraged, and under Jude's guidance and instruction we all walked away with a stunning stained glass panel to display at home. Very much looking forward to attending her more advanced courses later in the year!"
"I really enjoyed my weekend making stained glass. It was hard work but very rewarding and I loved learning something new. My glass looks lovely hanging in front of our windows with the sunlight streaming through it. Thank you for a brilliant experience."
"A really challenging weekend but learnt such a great deal. Was amazed at what we achieved, Jude was both encouraging and exacting, which enabled us to learn and create our own pieces. Will definitely want to do it again. A wonderful way to explore glass, a dollop of history and hugely practical. Highly recommend the weekend."
"Loved every minute of it and could easily have stayed for another two days! Jude let’s you freestyle as much as you want while providing the inspiration and the help on techniques.
It feels so creative yet very accessible. I left with lots of pieces I’m turning in to jewellery."
