1 Day Leaded Stained Glass Taster Workshop
This 1 day course designed to give you a taster of all the basic skills and techniques you need to make your own taster stained glass piece.
In this course you will be learning the “Leaded Stained Glass” technique.
Stained glass has been used for thousands of years, beginning with the ancient Romans and Egyptians, who produced small objects made from coloured glass. Stained glass windows in Britain can be traced back to the 7th century where they were widely used in churches to enhance their beauty and inform the viewer through narrative or symbolism. Today it is used in many different contexts from large public works to peoples homes.
