The Architectural Glass Centre, the commercial arm of the Swansea School of Architectural Glass, has been running glass-painting workshops/masterclasses with Jonathan Cooke for the past twelve years. The next workshop, which runs over three and a half days, is planned for 27–30 September 2013. The workshop is suitable for beginners or for those with previous experience of glass-painting. Jonathan Cooke will demonstrate glass-painting using a technique whereby a number of layers of paint can be built up prior to firing. He will also discuss materials, tools and firing schedules. During the workshop there will be ample time for participants to practise the technique and to produce samples.
An additional two and a half day workshop will be available, focusing specifically on the use of enamels and silver stain. This workshop will run from the 1 October to 3 October (midday).
