Summary

This is a full-week workshop where you will be able to create an original piece of stained glass. You can interpret your ideas in beautiful coloured glass to make a leaded panel up to A3 size. You will also be able to experiment with techniques of kiln-fired glass paints, stains and enamels and glass fusing in our flatbed glass kiln. This is an ideal course for beginners to stained glass, and continuing students can develop their skills and try new techniques. Beginners will be taken through a structured course, step by step, to include all the essential stages for making a leaded stained glass panel. This will cover design, cut line drawings, selecting and cutting from a range of coloured glass, leading, soldering, cementing and finishing techniques. You can experiment with kiln-fired glass painting and fusing. Continuing students can develop their design and craft skills as well as try out new techniques, e.g. glass fusing, frits, inclusions, slumping and high firing paints/enamels, copper foil technique, kiln-fired glass painting, tracing and shading paints/silver 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 for10 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 Art School at Stroud Campus. 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 a panel up to an A3 size. If you want to make larger work you may choose to buy some additional materials from a supplier or the tutor. The workshop is suitable to make domestic rather than architectural scale work.

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?

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.
