Summary

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 an individual project. 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 and kiln-fired glass paint/stain/enamels. If you want to enrol for 20 weeks on the autumn and spring courses, you will be able to enrol for the L1 AIM Award qualification. After that, you can progress to the L2 AIM Award (20 weeks) or the L1 AIM Certificate (30 weeks), or you can enrol on the practical class which sits alongside it. 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 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 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.

What do I need to join?

It is beneficial to have at least three terms of previous experience in stained glass, or at least one term of stained glass if you have a lot of other experience within art and design. Contact the tutor at ruth.adams@sgscol.ac.uk if you want to discuss the course's suitability for you.

How will I know how I am doing?

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 individuals' 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.

What can I do next?

You can enrol on the Thursday morning or evening All Levels course, or enrol on the Easter Fusing Glass or Summer Intensive Stained Glass course, as well as other arts courses at the College. There are AIM Award courses that run at the same time as this class or on a Thursday morning, 9:30 am–12:00 pm – Level 1 AIM Award and Level 2 AIM Award – if you want to gain a qualification.
