WORKSHOPS AND INDIVIDUAL TUITION
If you are interested in experiencing stained glass work for the first time or in improving existing skills there will be an opportunity for you at the Strawberry Glass Studio. Either use the contact form to email or telephone Gillian on 07714 458813 to find out about the possibilities. Dates are arranged to suit you.
Gillian first learned stained glass making in the late 1970s from Janet Banks who had her Studio in Somerset. Since the Strawberry Glass Studio was opened in 2008, Gillian and her partner David have been teaching from there as well as at a number of other venues. They believe in the importance of making this heritage craft as accessible as possible.
Take a look at the Events Section on this website to see the kind of activities that we are involved in over the coming few months, but remember that there are lots more dates available for workshops if the ones listed are not convenient.
The workshops provide relaxed and fun time, working with small groups of up to four people to ensure the right amount of attention and support. The tools you need, safety equipment and a choice of designs and glass are all available.
Beginners will learn to cut glass to a pattern, work with a choice of lead or copperfoil construction, followed by soldering and finishing the piece ready for display. Improvers are able to work with their own designs, building on their existing skills and tackling more adventurous projects. A number of students continue with their own projects at home and periodically book individual tuition when they need support with the next stage.
DEMONSTRATIONS AND GROUP ACTIVITIES
For larger groups, special events and demonstrations Strawberry Glass provides tailor made activities. Contact Gillian on 07714 458813 or via the contact form to discuss your requirements and a quote will be provided.
A venue with ample parking can be provided at our base at Unique Cottage Studios, or we can come to you if the facilities are suitable. Recent examples of activities include a 40th birthday craft evening, craft events on the monthly programme for a variety of special interest groups and sessional tuition for a community glass group.
For an unusual gift purchase a workshop voucher.
