Last Course Dates

There's only two more dates available for my stained glass courses. Due to needing more space in the workshop and keeping my commissioned workflow going I'll be resting my courses for a while so it's the last opportunity to book a place on the remaining dates!

STAINED GLASS TASTER DAY - Friday 16th June - £120

The stained glass taster day serves as an introduction to the techniques of stained glass. You will have a go at cutting glass and assembling a small panel to take home with you. There's only 4 places on a course so there's plenty of one to one time.

2 DAY STAINED GLASS COURSE - Thursday 18th & Friday 19th May - £240

The two day stained glass course offers a more in depth experience of how to make a stained glass panel. You will learn how to cut glass, draw a design, choose your colours, lead, solder, cement and clean. There's only 4 places on a course so there's plenty of one to one time.

The Lodge Window, The Cathedral School, Llandaff

The Lodge window was commissioned by The Cathedral School, Llandaff to commemorate the opening of the new building that houses the nursery and infant school.

The design was made in collaboration with the pupils and was developed after running a series of workshops with the pupils where we made drawings of leaves and seeds. The drawings were then collaged to make the final design into a tree form with the theme of nurture and growth.

Made By Hand Film

Have a look at this great film by R&A Collaborations of Made By Hand 2016. I'm in there and I think I'm talking at one point although to me it sounds like my alter ego…

Made by Hand will showcases a highly selective group of makers & artists set in the sumptuous surrounding of Cardiff's City Hall. This premier event is part of a portfolio of events organised by Sarah James & Nina Fox. Sarah & Nina also organise the multi award winning, The Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey and founded Made by Hand at Tredegar House near Newport. http://www.madebyhand-wales.co.uk

Ysgol Nant Talwg Installation

Yesterday saw some new work installed for Ysgol Nant Talwg, a primary school in Barry, South Wales. The enamelled toughened glass units were made by Proto Studios in Wiltshire and are based on drawings and collage made with the pupils in workshops earlier in the year.

The strong colours look amazing in the space, it was great to see them in place and I'm looking forward to taking some photos when the building is finished!
