This course is suitable for the committed student who wants to engage in
their study of stained glass. You can develop all your craft skills, try out new
techniques and work on individual projects. This is a really great opportunity
for you to develop a programme of study that suits your needs and to work
alongside other enthusiastic and productive students.

You can develop all your design and fabrication skills for leading or copper foil work, as well as experiment with fusing, kiln-fired glass paint/stain/enamels. 


Ruth Adams has 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 at Stroud College. She is a respected educator within this field, with an enormous amount of experience and enthusiasm to help you engage with this fantastic subject. 

Your fee includes the finest materials to make test samples and a leaded panel up to A3 size, or equivalent fusing materials.

There is a wonderful range of beautiful glass for you to use on your course, as well as lead, solder, glass paints/stains/enamels, fusing glass and sundries. 

If you want to make larger work, you may choose to buy some additional
materials from a supplier or the tutor.

How will I learn?

You can negotiate your programme of study at the beginning of the course and the tutor will deliver appropriate demonstrations to suit the group and individual needs. There is time to experiment and make tests before applying what you have learnt to a specific project of your choice. The tutor will help you and check your work to make sure you are progressing well. There will be one-to-one feedback and group appreciation.
