Painting on Fused Glass for a Leaded Light Panel



Stained glass has been used for centuries to create colourful windows, and can be seen in churches, public buildings and private homes. Fused glass processes can be used to create painted elements within a piece of glass work.

You will be combining contemporary painted fused glass with traditional leaded light techniques, to produce a small stained glass panel. Your painted glass will be fired (fused) after day 1, then these pieces will be used to create your panel on day 2.
The course will include short demonstrations to the group by the tutor when required, with the majority of the course taking the form of practical progress on your own personal project, and individual guidance from the tutor when required

Day 1: Creating a design for your panel; cutting your glass pieces as required; painting the glass pieces ready for firing
Day 2: Assembling your painted and fused glass pieces into a panel, using traditional leaded light techniques

Coloured and clear glass; glass paints; leading and solder; use of all tools and equipment as required

Preparation of a design in advance will be most advantageous - you will be sent dimensions and guidance after booking
Please wear closed-in shoes (no sandals)
Please bring a packed lunch on both days
