Would you like to learn how to make your own stained glass piece?
I have been passionate about the art of stained glass since first discovering the stained glass course at Edinburgh Art College 18 years ago. Since then I have completed my degree in Architectural Glass, worked in established stained glass studios throughout the UK and attended Master classes with world-renowned contemporary glass artists. I have developed a broad range of glass making skills over the years and I want to share all my tips and tricks with you.
Classes are tailored to suit all ages and abilities and can cover a variety of techniques from traditional leaded stained glass to copper foiling, glass painting and fusing.
Classes are held in my shared studio in Dennistoun, Glasgow and my private workshop near Bathgate in West Lothian. I also offer packages for local community groups where I will bring the workshop to you. Get in touch to discuss your needs.
Beginners Stained Glass Classes
We will make at least one small stained glass panel from scratch while learning all the skills necessary to craft a finished stained glass window. You will learn how to cut glass to a pattern, lead up, solder and putty your piece as well as how to add a decorative chain if you choose.
Beginner’s stained glass classes are offered as a block of 6 evening classes or as two-day workshops. All the necessary materials and tools are supplied. Please see the calendar for current available dates.
Intermediate Stained Glass Classes
These classes are available to students who have completed at least one block of beginner’s classes and those who have sufficient previous experience. These classes allow students who are already comfortable with cutting and leading glass to attempt more complex projects and learn new techniques such as glass painting and fusing.
Intermediate stained glass classes are offered as a block of 6 evening sessions, single drop-in evening sessions or 2 day weekend workshops. Cost covers tuition, tools and equipment only. Glass and other necessary materials will be available to purchase at additional cost or you can bring your own.
