Who is this course for?
This 5 session course over 4 weeks is for students who have completed an intermediate course with The GlassHouse or have previous experience with stained glass.

What does the course cover?
The aim of this course is to improve your skills, during this course you will have the opportunity to create your own design.
A copy of your design must be submitted to The Glasshouse for approval no later than three weeks before the course starts. Your design will need to be of a reasonable size and we recommend keeping to approx 24 to 30 pieces and include full measurements. We recommend that you include consideration to the type of glass and colours at this stage so that the tutor can suggest which glass and lead would best suit your design and time can be allowed to order glass into stock. Once your design has been agreed it must be drawn to scale in preparation for your first class, it is the students responsibility to prepare the scale drawing, please take care to include the lead within your measurements, your tutors will give advice when you submit your design.
What is included in the fee?
Material costs of glass and lead are NOT included in the course fee. Glass and lead can be purchased from the GlassHouse or sourced separately. The use of tools and equipment, bench space, other materials and supervision are included.
Please note we do not offer extended time or additional sessions to complete your panel if it is not completed during the course.
