Learn to paint on glass. Emma will pass on to her students the ancient glass painting skills that she learnt from stained glass master craftsmen at the top European stained glass studios. Using kiln-fired glass paint, students will learn Victorian paint layering methods using lavender oil and vinegar. It’s a lot less scary than it sounds! After the class the glass paintings will be taken to Emma’s studio in Hunworth North Norfolk and fired in her kiln at 620 degree. Then the fired glass paintings will be framed and posted or delivered by hand to each student.

For children with their parents…for adults…for GCSE students, retirees, people who are good at art, people who are bad at art…anyone!   Materials, tools, lunch and refreshments are provided.

See below for more details.

All standards catered for and all confidences boosted!

No previous experience necessary.

Skills and use of tools that will be learnt; Design skills (noticing detail; composition; balance of line, shape light and dark; focal point of a painting; controlling value gradation in order to make things appear three dimensional; creating different textures); mixing and grinding the kiln-firable glass paint with gum Arabic using a pallet knife on a glass pallet; applying a vinegar wash with an applicator brush; diffusing a vinegar wash using a badger brush; removing the highlights of the image using a stick or pin; applying the low lights with lavender-oil-mixed glass paint using a rigger tracing brush (including controlling density of line, curves and a circles); firing temperatures.

All tools and materials will be provided.

It’s going to be AWESOME!

Covid Safety Precautions; I will ask each attendee to take a rapid flow test before each class; I will wear a mask myself and ask attendees to wear a mask at all times unless eating or drinking; students will not share tools or materials; there will be no more than ten people in the large room at any one time so it will be possible to remain 2m away from each other; the surfaces and tools are cleaned and disinfected before and after each class.  I will take into account government guidelines at the time and amend safety precautions accordingly.

I’m DBS checked (as I’m a carer for the elderly, employed by Home Instead).
