These costs can vary depending on the size of the project and the choice of glass. It is possible to spend as little or as much as you decide. If you have a specific project in mind please feel free to ring first to ascertain its suitability for the course time and the available space within the studio.

Both beginners and experienced students will be able to create their own projects guided by artist Sharon Campbell. As a beginner, or as a refresher for those with experience, you will learn about the techniques involved in making a stained glass panel, cutting glass, leading and soldering.

Whether you are interested in experimenting with a variety of techniques, or repairing that old panel in your cellar, or designing your own panel, the tutor will be able to guide you through this process. Sessions will be focused but relaxed, limited to 4 students, so students have quality time with the tutor.
