This 2 day weekend course is designed for those wanting to learn traditional painting on glass techniques and also be introduced to modern glass paints which give an enhanced colour pallet. The range of colours available to the modern glass artist would have been the envy of glass painters for the last 1000 years who were limited by the glass itself to provide the colour to a window. • Areas covered : glass cutting, mixing paints & silver stain, traditional painting technique and kiln firing. We will also cover using different mediums such as vinegar, oils and gum arabic and dispensing them using spray gun, calligraphy pen and brushes. There is a limit of seven people per glass painting workshop enabling individual tuition, please note that we will only run this class once a year. Price for the weekend includes materials.
