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 four people and all coronavirus regulations and safety precautions are heeded. However due to the changing conditions in relation to lockdowns and tier restrictions, the dates may not take place when planned, so please bear this in mind. You will be offered later dates should this be necessary without any penalties regarding deposit payments and voucher timescales.
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.
