This two-day glass painting course will guide you through the process of creating your own painted piece which can be made into a stained glass panel or displayed as a window hanging. You can choose from a selection of designs to paint, or bring along your own image to reproduce onto glass. You'll learn how to plan the design, mix and apply glass paint. The completed painted piece will then be kiln-fired onto the glass to make permanent, and finally you'll frame your piece into an A5 (148mm x 210mm) size panel for display.
No experience is required. This course is suitable for adult beginners.
Your tutor for this course is Steve Lewis. Steve Lewis trained as a stained glass designer at Swansea Metropolitan University, gaining further experience at Lincoln Cathedral as a trainee in stained glass conservation. In 1998 Steve was awarded a scholarship to study stained glass conservation by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST). In 2012 Steve obtained a Masters in Historic Conservation at Oxford Brookes. In 2014 Steve established SDL Stained Glass, and continues to provide high quality services in design and conservation of stained glass.
Our class sizes are small, so you'll have a chance to engage with the tutor while you work.
