The Stained Glass Centre in York has announced the dates of this year’s summer workshops. Four one-day, self-contained workshops in glass painting and leading will be held on the fol-lowing dates:
Saturday 23rd June – Glass painting
Saturday 30th June – Glass painting
Sunday 1st July – Glazing
Saturday 14th July – Glazing
Workshops on glass painting will introduce basic techniques of painting on glass, as used by artists from the medieval period to the present day. Participants will practice using different brushes to produce different effects, and by the end of the day will have produced a painted piece to be fired. Those who also attend a glazing day will be able to incorporate this painted piece into a leaded panel. The leading and glazing workshop will focus on basic techniques of cutting glass to shape, leading and soldering to produce a simple stained glass panel. Those who have previously attended a painting workshop will be able to incorporate their painted piece into a leaded panel.
The workshops are taught by Ann Sotheran, a Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, with over 25 years’ experience of designing and making stained glass. She has taught evening classes in stained glass for nearly twenty years as well as various workshops covering all aspects of stained glass work.
The workshops are held at St Martin-cum-Gregory Church, Micklegate, York, and run from 10.30am to 5.00pm. The cost of attending each day is £70, which includes all materials and use of tools and equipment. Numbers are limited to ten at each workshop.
