The techniques of kiln-fired stained glass painting
We offer technique-based training in all aspects kiln-fired stained glass painting and silver staining.
Our studio is on the edge of a tiny English village, and students travel to us from right across the world:
From Peru, Australia, the USA, Japan, France, Ireland, Kuwait, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Singapore, the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. Also from across the UK.
Our students travel these distances because of what they can learn from us here and take back with them. Otherwise it would not be worthwhile.
Some students are beginners.
Others know something but want to improve the technique.
Other students run professional and successful studios of their own.
We mainly teach 1-to-1 or in small groups. This way you will always get the complete focus you need for your best progress.
The agenda depends on you – on what you all ready know, on what you want to learn, and also on the length of your stay; this is usually between two and five days.
We prepare stained glass designs in advance, which illustrate the techniques you choose to study here – this is so you concentrate on glass painting (not on drawing).
So you can come to us where you will learn things at our studio in Stanton Lacy.
Or we can visit you.
In November 2011 and July 2012 we gave seminars to Peli Glass / Glasatelier Oud Rijswijk in Zoetermeer (the Netherlands), where we trained professionals from Holland, Belgium, Germany, France and Romania
We will return there in 2013.
Also we are are booked to tour east coast US in Spring 2014, when we will work with various studios and also launch our new book. If you want to keep in touch with us about our US tour, please say write to us here.
