This two day course provides a detailed look at making a stained glass panel, working on a simple design within a template. You'll choose your glass from a selection and the tutor will show you how to cut it to a pattern. You'll then be taught how to cut and shape your lead came, then solder, cement and polish your stained glass. You'll complete a 28cm x 20cm stained glass panel which can be hung or displayed in your home.
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.
