Summary

An ideal course for those who wish to gain a qualification. Beginners are taken through a structured course to include all the stages essential to making a leaded stained glass panel. Continuing students will develop design/craft skills, experimenting further with kiln-fired paints/stains/enamels. In this course, you will gain knowledge and the skills to produce a finished leaded glass panel of your chosen design. Research and plan your design, develop your ideas, use practiced techniques safely and reflect upon your finished piece. Use a sketchbook and log experiments in your journal and worksheets to record your progress. Ruth Adams taught Fired Stained Glass Painting at Central Saint Martins, where she previously completed her postgraduate studies in Glass with distinction. She taught Stained Glass for 10 years at the City Literary Institute in Central London. Ruth relocated to Stroud, where she works as a practicing artist and set up the Glass department within the Art School at Stroud Campus. She is a respected educator, with an enormous amount of experience and enthusiasm to help you engage with this fantastic subject. Your fee includes a sketchbook and the finest materials to make test samples and a panel up to A3 size. For larger work you will need to buy some additional materials from a supplier or the tutor. If you are in receipt of benefits, a waiver may apply.

What do I need to join?

No experience is necessary. A notebook and sturdy shoes (no open-toed sandals). Any designs and doodles that you may want to develop to discuss with the tutor.

How will I know how I am doing?

The tutor will give demonstrations and one-to-one support. The tutor will help you and check your work to make sure you are progressing well.

What can I do next?

The follow-on qualification, AIM Award Level 2, starts in September 2020. Or join: All Levels, Thursday mornings, 9:30 am–12:00 pm at Stratford Road Campus. All Levels, Thursday evenings, 6:30 pm–9:00 pm, off-site at the Hub Academy, Hope Mill Lane, Brimscombe. For those with more experience, the Advanced/Intermediate class runs on Friday mornings, 9:00 am–12:00 pm in the College. The Fusing Easter Workshop, across 4 days, will give you a really good grounding in the fused glass technique. A 5-day summer school in July will give a chance to work on a particular project or further experiment with techniques.
