Discovering Stained Glass ~ 2 days with Jackie Hunt

 9.30am – 4.30pm
£175 inc. a tasty 2 course Aga lunch & home baking

Material Charges £25

Join Jackie Hunt for two days creating a beautiful Stained Glass panel

Working with coloured, clear and textured glass, you will learn how to handle, cut safely and to 'lead up' a small square panel  (approx 200mm or 8" )  All glass, tools and equipment are provided. Traditionally, stained glass windows are associated with cathedrals and churches but these days it is also used in homes for decoration. Staining glass is an ancient art of using colour and light to create atmosphere and to depict images and stories.

The panel you make could be for a place in your house or could be built into a window or frame as a hanging panel. Please bring any ideas you may have!

Please bring: a sketchbook for ideas and notes. Also if appropriate, don’t forget a good pair of glasses to enable close detailed work. All equipment and tools will be provided. Old shirt to work in. Thin disposable gloves.

 Kindly note there will be a £25 materials charge payable directly to the tutor on the day. This price will cover the 8" x 8" glass panel. If students wish to have a larger glass panel this will be charged exceeding the original £25. Typically this course runs with around 8 students. Suitable for all abilities.

A health and safety briefing will be given and the use of safety equipment (provided) will be required. Lead, lead solder and the fumes are toxic substances both to handle and to breathe in. Pregnant women are advised not to handle lead or breathe in fumes. PLEASE DO NOT WEAR OPEN-TOED SANDALS
