What is happening in May ’22?

Wednesday Morning Stained glass course starting 11th May, that’s what 😀

On the 11th May the Wednesday morning stained glass 8 week course starts. It is suitable for beginners and those with experience alike, where you can develop your own project under the guidance of the tutor.

It is a small class, now going back to 4 people, which still allows for lots of support and time with the tutor, that’s me. It is good to be on a course with others, as well as the nice company and chatter, one has the benefit of hearing and sharing lots of creative ideas, I often been inspired by the design ideas of students. Quite often I’d like to keep their work too! (but of course everyone does take their lovely finished panels home 🙂

The studio is in Hope Mill, a grade two listed building and part of the AWOL STUDIOS, in Ancoats. It less than 5 minutes from New Islington tram stop, which is one stop form Manchester Piccadilly and has a big car park.

I think my studio is a friendly place, always lots of tea, coffee, herb tea and yummy biscuits and chocolates, it’s a given it helps the creative process.

Do have a look at the details and I am always happy to chat with you about the course and any ideas you may have. Wednesday Morning Stained glass course – starting 11th May ’22

It was a very busy creative autumn with lots of beautiful glass panels, sun-catchers and Christmas decorations made. The slide shows a range of work from the Copper foiling 4 week short course, Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop and Stained glass for beginners workshops.

Autumn is here & Summer work in pictures

A new Short Thursday Evening Course in Copper Foiling

It was great to get going again in late May, teaching three people at a time in Workshops. There is nothing quite like meeting folk face to face to create with glass.

I am still keeping all workshops to three people attending to keep us safe. But it is good to be back in an ‘almost regular’ swing of things.

The new dates for workshops and courses for this Autumn are filling up much quicker than I expected. I think people are keen in a safe way to get out and about again. A bit of creative play and making with colourful glass is so good for the soul.

I am running a new short evening course in Copper Foiling 4 weekly sessions on a Thursday 6pm – 8.30pm, suitable for beginners and those with experience. There currently is one place on the course starting on Thursday 30th September and two places on the course starting on 18th November. Do contact me if you are interested and find more information here.

Here is the summer work starting from when we could open in May in pictures, in no particular order:

If you would like to be kept informed of new dates for workshops and courses please do contact me and I will add you to the emailing list.

In the meantime I am having some fun creating a stained glass honey-comb with the Manchester bee design, along with a few Christmas decorations. I’m especially enjoying the iridescent glass!

NEW WORKSHOPS for November and December

Stained glass and Copper Foiling NEW DATES are ready to roll! 

Having nearly run all the postponed workshops (due to Covid-19) I now have new dates for workshops in November and December. I am limiting class size to 3 people attending, we will be wearing masks, which has worked well for the postponed workshops. Other than demonstrations people will have a bench each to create at.

Check out the links below for more information.
