Enjoy a week immersed in colour and light. Under Lilian’s expert guidance, you will design and complete your own chosen project. All levels of experience are welcome including complete beginners.
An exciting opportunity to develop your skills and creativity. The course will cover both copper foil and leaded light processes, although you may choose to focus on one or other technique. One to one tuition ensures plenty of practical support.
“Highly recommend this course. I have been to Zantium Studios three times and each visit has been a wonderful experience.”
Tutor: Lilian Shaw
Lilian trained originally as a painter working in oils and pastels. Her love of light and colour led her to pursue a career as a stained glass artist. She founded her own studio in 1986.
She has many varied commissions to her name both in the UK and abroad. These include pieces for private clients, churches and the National Trust.
Lilian is an experienced and conscientious tutor with a genuine passion for her craft.
“Lili is inspiring – she guides you through every step of the process, gives great advice and encourages you to learn through hands on experience.”
An attractive range of coloured glass will be available for purchase. The price varies depending upon your chosen project (panel size, colours, glass types etc). There is cover charge of £10 for basics (flux, tallow, cement, whiting) and use of tools.
On average, a panel made over the 5 days comes out at around £40-£50
Note: This is in addition to the course fee
