You will also gain an insight into historic glass making techniques and development, from medieval to modern day. You can choose to work from your own design, or use one of Helen’s pre-prepared designs for your glass panel. At the end of the course, you will be able to take home your own stained-glass panel approximately 220mm X 220mm.
