2-Day Glass Painting & Glazing Workshop

Wolds Workshop is pleased to offer a 2- day practical taster course, which aims to introduce you to the traditional craft of painting on glass, taught by professional artist and conservator, Helen Bower.

Learning outcomes:

This class will guide students through the techniques of glass painting, using examples of medieval glass painting applications as inspiration. On the second day, students will be shown how to incorporate their kiln-fired pieces into a simple leaded framework, including soldering and cementing. At the end of the course, you will be able to take home your own stained and painted glass panel approximately 220mm X 220mm.

This course is not advisable for anyone who may be pregnant due to the use of lead-based materials.
