Stained Glass Weekend WestPort
Have you time to fit a Stained Glass weekend into your life before the summer ends? If you want to learn how to make stained Glass there is a course coming up on the 13&14 September.
We will be doing a little bit of Fusing during the course too (because it’s fun!).
When: 13 & 14 September
Price: €80pp – Payable via website
Where: BlueGlasshouse.com (WestPort)
Who: Linda Mulloy 087 7981123, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Commission a truly beautiful traditional or contemporary stained glass panel or learn the skills for making your own.
We teach traditional methods of making stained glass, leading (leaded lights) and the copper foil technique. The courses are held in our Studio on The Quay and are very ‘hands-on’, inspiring and great fun!
People often come back after taking the basic course to make more ambitious pieces such as a lampshade or a panel for a specific window in their home.
You don’t need to have any prior experience or be particularly artistic to take our courses. You will quickly find out how good coloured glass looks when the light shines through it; you’ll be surprised at what skills you develop as your enthusiasm grows.
Most of our courses are suitable for beginners and improvers. We keep our groups small (usually 6 participants) to ensure you can work at your own speed, learning from each other throughout the course.
