These workshops are designed for those new to the craft of stained glass but can be adapted to provide challenge to intermediate makers too. The group is currently restricted to three people due to the coronavirus regulations and all safety precautions are heeded.
The workshops are usually held at the weekends- Saturday/Sunday(occasionally Thursday/Friday) at my studio in Harrogate. If you have a small group of friends that would enjoy a particular class on another date, I am happy to look at arranging this with you. Just get in touch for a chat about your requirements. Thank you.
