Christmas Gifts and AWOL ICE

Christmas Gift experiences in Stained glass and ICE at AWOL Studios, Hope Mill Ancoats.

With the importance of less waste and changing the way we consume goods, being at the forefront of our minds, buying less ‘stuff’ and locally is the thing to do now.  I don’t feel too bad saying please buy local from makers and artists this Christmas. There is a host of exciting workshop experiences out there, where one takes home not only a beautiful creation but a lovely memory that lasts.

Why not look at the workshops and courses I run as gifts for someone this Christmas. I still have spaces   Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop   Stained glass for beginners weekend workshops   Evening and Daytime classes     Do have a look and please do feel free contact me and ask questions.

The workshops I run are based at AWOL Studio’s in Hope Mill Ancoats Manchester, where a few of us Artists who teach and run workshops have pulled together to create ICE’, ‘independent Creative Educators’. “We offer unique creative experiences in a Unique Grade 2* listed venue – Hope Mill.

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.

It’s a wrap! 2018

On this, the shortest dark day, I am calling ‘time’ on a beautiful colourful Stained Glass 2018.

I’m looking forward to 2019 with more amazing stained glass panels being made, and a new daytime class too, and of course the longer lighter days.

In the meantime, I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Peaceful festive season, with maybe one to many mince pies! I do love mince pies.

There are still a few spaces available on the Introduction to Copper Foiling and the Monday evening class, if anyone wants to join, please do pop me an email and it can be organised by the New Year.

Here are the last few finished stained glass panels of 2018 (not polished or fitted yet) brightening up the day.
