A relaxed, fun and informal way to learn about the art of Stained Glass, in a small class setting, with a very experienced tutor.
The intensive weekend courses will outline the techniques involved in making leaded glass windows, showing the many different types and colours of glass available and highlighting the techniques used to achieve different effects. The emphasis will be on practical work, with lots of demonstrations, with each student completing their panel by the end of the weekend.
The course is for mixed abilities, as I find all students learn so much from each other. Above all, the course will be FUN! In this two day workshop, you will make your own stained glass panel that you can take home.
Fi Kilpatrick has been a practising glass artist for almost 30 years, with a wealth of teaching experience, both privately and for Adult Education. Fi has taught her skills for many years to all ages and abilities. Having studied Mural Design at Chelsea School of Art, Fi specialised in stained glass and set up a glass studio in Portobello in 1988, designing and making glass panels to commission. After extensive travels, she finally settled in north Norfolk, where she works from the Norfolk Design Gallery & studio. Fi has studied under Mark Angus, Alison Kinnaird, Gayle Mathias and Detlef Tanz.
The cost for the two day course is £260 and a non-refundable deposit of £100 will secure your place.
All materials – glass, paper, drawing tools etc are provided and included in the cost but hand tools, soldering irons and other studio equipment are provided on loan. Tools and extra glass etc will be available to purchase from the studio during the course if necessary. You are welcome to bring your own tools with you if you have them.
If you have any ideas/ sketches/images you are keen to use, please feel free to bring them to the class or call me to discuss prior to the course.
The courses are non residential. There are many great Bed and Breakfasts close by, as well as pubs with rooms and hotels (with or without Spas!).
