On the one day workshop we start at 10am and finish at approximately 5.00pm. Students will learn the basics of making a stained glass leaded panel in the traditional way. This is ideal for beginners and those with a little experience.
We will cover the following;
* Health & Safety with glass
* How to cut glass
* Designing and making a pattern
* Cutting and fitting lead came
* Leading up
* Finishing and polishing
By the end the day students will have created their very own special stained glass panel to take home with them.
NEW – Fused and Leaded Glass Workshop – 2 days
This is a new course for 2017 and allows students to have a go at fusing glass together and then use these pieces within their stained glass panel which they will make on day 2. As well as learning everything they would on the one day workshop, they will also learn about fusing glass in a kiln and the creative opportunities it allows. Both days start at 10am and finish at 5pm. Materials and use of tools and equipment is included.
NEW – Home Project Summer School – 4 days
This is a one off course for those who have a project in mind, maybe for their home and would like the opportunity to work on it in the Firewolf Glass Studio under Kate’s expert tuition, taking advantage of her experience and knowledge. This is limited to 3 places only. Materials will need to be purchased by students according to their design.
Students wishing to book on this course will need to discuss their designs with Kate before booking.
What to bring
All tools and equipment are provided. Materials are provided for the One Day and Two Day Workshops. Kate can provide all students with a special glass discount card for use at Creative Glass Guild in Bristol.
Students will need to wear closed in shoes and comfortable clothing. Bring along any ideas or sketches, a notepad and pen would be useful and a camera to chart your progress. Come with enthusiasm, and a desire to create!
The art of stained glass is a very physical craft. If you are not sure whether it would be suitable for you, please feel free to contact Kate to discuss before booking.
