The stained glass course will provide a basic understanding of how to make a window – Traditional methods will be used to make a stained glass leaded window panel for you to keep and you will be equipped to carry on with more projects at home.
Since picking up my first piece of glass ten years ago my love of it has just grown. I now run my own stained glass business making windows, restoring old windows, I also make mirrors. I’ve been lucky enough to work on large and small projects supplying award winning restaurants, pubs, churches and of course private homes. I also create bereavement pieces and I’ve been asked many times to fuse ashes of loved ones and pets into glass and make light catchers. This is always a great privilege.
I’m currently involved in a community project involving two schools, in which the children do the designing. The finished large panels will be then put in a new community centre.
I would say that most people that start stained glass become hooked! Making a stained glass panel is truly magical experience and unlike most other crafts, you don’t get to see it properly until the very end because of the frailty, so trust in what your doing and a little patience goes a long way. I never tire of the surprise when I lift it for the first time and the light breaths life into it and the colour comes alive.
