The stained glass centre at St Martin-cum-Gregory in Micklegate, York, is offering four workshop days, which will be led by designer Ann Sotheran, on 18 May, and 1, 2 and 22 June.
Two different workshops are available, and each workshop is self-contained:
Saturday, 18 May 2013 Glass-painting
Saturday, 1 June 2013 Glass-painting
Sunday, 2 June 2013 Leading and glazing
Saturday, 22 June 2013 Leading and glazing
Running from 10.30am to 4.30pm, the cost of attending each day is £50, which includes all materials and use of tools and equipment.
In this one-day workshop you will be introduced to basic techniques of painting on glass, as used by artists from the medieval period to the present day. You will have the opportunity to practice using different brushes to produce different effects, and by the end of the day you will produce a painted piece to be fired. If you also attend a glazing day, you will have the opportunity to incorporate your painted piece into a leaded panel.
Leading and Glazing
In this one-day workshop you will learn the basic techniques of cutting coloured glass to shape, and leading and soldering pieces to produce a simple piece of stained glass. If you have previously attending a painting day you will also be able to incorporate your painted piece into a leaded panel.
