The Stained Glass Centre: Stained Glass Workshops 2017

The Stained Glass Centre in York still has places available on three of its one-day, self-contained workshops in glass painting and leading to be held over the course of the summer, on the following dates:

Saturday 17th June – Glass painting

Saturday 1st July – Glass painting

Saturday 15th July – Leading and glazing

Workshops on glass painting will introduce basic techniques of painting on glass, as used by artists from the medieval period to the present day. Participants will practice using different brushes to produce different effects, and by the end of the day will have produced a painted piece to be fired. Those who also attend a glazing day will be able to incorporate this painted piece into a leaded panel. The leading and glazing workshop will focus on basic techniques of cutting glass to shape, leading and soldering to produce a simple stained glass panel. Those who have previously attended a painting workshop will be able to incorporate their painted piece into a leaded panel.

The workshops are taught by Ann Sotheran, a Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, with over 25 years’ experience of designing and making stained glass. She has taught evening classes in stained glass for nearly twenty years as well as various workshops covering all aspects of stained glass work.

The workshops are held at St Martin-cum-Gregory Church, Micklegate, York, and run from 10.30am to 5.00pm. The cost of attending each day is £70, which includes all materials and use of tools and equipment. Numbers are limited to ten at each workshop.
