Intro to Stained Glass

Learn about the techniques of stained glass. By the end of the course you will be able to design a stained glass window, cut glass accurately, construct a panel or 3D object with lead and/or copper foil, solder joints or copper foil edges, neatly, plus cement and polish. This workshop is for anyone with an interest in stained glass. Previous knowledge/experience is not necessary.

Tutor: Jess Stroud

Jess has been working with stained glass for over 25 years.  She learnt her craft in the professional studios of several noted stained glass artists and she now designs and makes original pieces, from small decorative panels to larger window and door panels.  Jess also enjoys teaching stained glass techniques and encourages students to increase their knowledge and continue to build on existing skills.

“The West End Centre is a friendly non-threatening and well-resourced environment which provides the student with first class tuition and an opportunity to learn a new skill. Stained glass, an age-old practice, is interesting, absorbing and satisfying and Jess our tutor is highly skilled, patient and a very talented teacher. Thank you Jess and the WEC for the chance to learn something completely new and to gain new friends.”
