Exceptional Times

Whilst the world is on hold, and we wait in self isolation to hopefully slow down the virus and give the NHS a fighting chance…

Lets look at some of the recent creations from workshops, courses and those who have carried on at home. Help keep our spirits up, maybe inspire each other to create and make, whilst I wait to re-schedule post-phoned workshops and courses.

I am starting to re-orientate how to precede with work and life in general.  Usually Artists are quite good at lateral thinking, but this, as for many, is being quite a challenge.  Talk about bringing communities together in shared experience. 

It was almost funny discovering this Tuesday  lunchtime that the studio would close by 6pm having just had word that someone wanted a commission, Yay and Ooh!  I tried to decide in a short space of time whether I should attempt to set up a home studio or not (space issue’s, free roaming cat Dr Seuss).  I rushed around, my brain in muddy confusion, collecting tools and a choice of glass together, squishing it  into my small car. How much and what glass and lead would I need…..how long is a piece of string type question.  I decided to problem solve the lack of space, workbench and cat later, one problem at a time. Today is Saturday, I have a wee home studio, bench as well, set up and ready to go! My hope is I can take small commissions, depending on the suppliers still open online….watch this space or send me an email if interested. 

I hope this slide show will  keep those creative juices flowing. Do email any lovely pictures of stained glass and copper foiling you have recently made or are making, I will post them onto the Facebook page to keep us all going.

New Stained Glass courses for 2020

Stained glass courses and workshops in Manchester – New dates for 2020

Come and learn a new skill and create your own stained glass panels. During the short winter months be up-lifted by the beauty and colour of glass,  whilst learning how to design your own pattern, cut and lead glass and solder the panel.

Courses are 9 weeks long on a Monday evening or a Wednesday morning, with only 4 people giving plenty of quality time with the tutor, that’s me.

There are also workshops held on the weekends, Stained glass for beginners and Introduction to Copper Foiling.

Have a look at the slide show to see some work in progress and previous stained glass made during courses. Some is made by people who have returned for a second course. The courses are also suitable for beginners with no previous experience, just a willingness to have ago.
