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.

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.

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.

Summer Glass Workshops new dates

Creative glass workshops in July

I am about to run a Stained glass weekend for beginners this weekend 1st and 2nd June, and have set dates for the next workshops in July.

Whilst preparing and choosing glass for people to use, I found myself staring at the glass. I do not seem to tire of how beautiful and uplifting it’s colour and light transmitting properties are.

Here are a few pictures, although it is hard to really show the true splendor of glass through a photograph. Well I find it hard, with a smart phone!

For information on the next Stained glass weekend workshop and Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop follow the links. Why not try your hand creating with glass.

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.
