Stained-glass courses

The stained-glass course invites anyone who is looking for a creative way to relax or would like to try their hand as a stained-glass artist. Manual work is a perfect relaxation and escape from everyday problems, and the joy of making a beautiful object with one’s own hands is a unique feeling. 

Participation in the two-day workshop allows you to make your own stained glass piece from scratch. During the course we work with projects prepared by the participants, which gives a unique opportunity to realize your own idea!

We’ve prepared three versions of this course (described below), depending on the complexity of your design. We have:

  1. two days courses – in two options: 6 or 10 hours in total
  2. four days course with painting

II. Four days course with painting

The stained-glass course invites ambitious hobbyists, who want to try their hand arm in arm with professional artists – stained glass masters. For this unique course you can propose any design of your choice, e.g. your favorite painting or poster. Please send us your design at least two weeks before your course. Our art director (with 25 years of experience in creating unique stained glass art) will personally oversee its development, so that it can be done in four days. Most of the projects require the use of painting techniques, which will make them even more unique and close to the original dream design.

Our experienced craftsmen will guide you  step by step through the entire process of creating stained glass, taking an individual approach to your needs and preferences. The patinating process will be overlooked by our art director.

The course programme includes:
a) design preparation- the draft will be prepared up front, according to the participant’s preference

c) cutting and grinding of glass
d) applying layers of patina where it is required by the project (each layer must be fixed / fired in our professional kiln overnight)
