This course aims to investigate the historic medium of painted and stained glass via a contemporary approach. We will work on the notion of assemblage and it’s historic design potential whilst utilising hand blown, flashed, pot metal, machine and float glass. We will explore both traditional and contemporary processes of embellishing, via painting, staining and simple surface abrasion whilst cross referencing this via group support, idea and process exchange, demo’s and hopefully a little magic?

The courses will include; Glass cutting/selection, cartooning, glass painting, glass embellishment/painting, masking/firing and other related methodology, and leading and soldering.

The course introduction will outline what is possible in terms of painted and stained glass creation and touch on historical precedents and contemporary possibilities, showing samples, discussion and ideas. The course will also include; painting demo firing glass, drawing up and cutting glass, other forms of embellishment, assemblage and a leading demo.
