Autumn Workshops and a little video

September Stained glass – Workshop Dates

We are now half way through the Summer Holidays, although my kids are nearly grown up my mind set and routines are still governed by the school holidays. Bringing a sense of new beginnings in September, new uniform, new class room, new college or University and maybe new set of skills in Stained glass?

I have dates for workshops and classes starting on September 21st and 22nd with Stained glass weekend for Beginners  and Introduction to Copper Foiling on 28th September. Evening and Daytime classes start from the end of September. All classes and workshops are small and friendly.

Stained glass workshops – The Students work

I have a last workshop this Sunday then its putting on the sunhat for August before I start in September with a Stained glass for Beginners weekend Workshop on 21st and 22nd September.

Autumn is a good time to learn new skills of cutting and shaping glass and creating your own panel to take home. It is still light, with red overtones, beautiful autumn colours coming in to inspire, and the winter to hone those skills!

In the meantime a slide show of work made or in progress by those students attending the Monday evening and Wednesday morning courses and the last stained glass for beginners weekend. Some students come to several courses to make their special stained glass projects realised.

Thank you for viewing, if you have any questions about any of the workshops or course please do contact me.


Copper Foiling in July

Copper Foiling Workshop Sunday July 28th

There are places on the Introduction to Copper Foiling one day workshop in July, held at my Manchester based Studio in AWOL studios.

Copper Foiling is a fun glass craft to learn and can be suitable to develop into a hobby. Playing with colourful glass to create sun-catchers and decorative hanging for you home or to hang in the garden.

Here is a slide show of some of the pieces made by previous students from the copper foiling workshop, follow the link to book or do message me on the Contact page.
