Making a Stained Glass Panel with Jackie Hunt This course will enable you to create your own stained glass panel using the traditional method of combining coloured glass with lead. The panel that you choose to make could be for a location in your house and will be suitable to either build into a window or frame as a hanging panel The course involves working with coloured, clear and textured glass; learning how to handle and cut it safely and to design, 'lead up' and solder a panel of about A4 size. All glass, tools and equipment will be provided for use on the course. There is a charge of £25 per person to cover materials used over the two days, payable to the tutor. No experience is needed. This is an informal workshop with a small number of participants and there will be demonstrations and practical help throughout. If you have some experience of making stained glass you can use this course as an opportunity to improve your skills.
The tutor Jackie Hunt is a professional stained glass artist. She has a design training as well as specific training in architectural glass and has taught workshops and evening classes since 2004 in Yorkshire and Cumbria, and in Dorset. She has done a number of public art projects that involve research into local history; her work can be seen at www.jackiehunt.co.uk There is a café on site for teas, coffees and lunch, or you are welcome to bring your own lunch. Please wear sensible shoes (no high heels or open toes) and be aware that the work can be messy so you may want to bring an apron or similar. If you have ideas for a panel bring them with you to discuss; there will be designs available to use if you prefer. Health and safety issues Lead and lead solder will be used – these are toxic substances both to handle and to breathe in the solder fumes. Pregnant women are advised not to handle lead or breathe in fumes. A health and safety briefing will be a part of the course and the use of safety equipment which is provided (e.g. safety goggles while glass cutting, latex gloves for handling lead) will be required. If you are allergic to latex gloves please bring your own similar.
