An ideal course for those who wish to gain a qualification.

Beginners are taken through a structured course to include all the stages essential for 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 the knowledge and skills to produce a finished leaded glass panel to 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 ten years at the City Literary Institute in Central London. Ruth relocated to Stroud, where she works as a practicing artist, and she set up the glass department within the Arts School. She is a respected educator, with an enormous amount of experience and enthusiasm to help you engage with this fantastic subject.

Your fee includes the finest materials to include a sketchbook and 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.
