Stained glass mosaic course on Monday 16th March- an eco friendly craft
Come for a stained glass mosaic course on Monday 16th March- it’s beautiful and eco friendly. It’s a great way to make environmental art from glass offcuts and makes the perfect creative staycation in the beautiful village of Chilham, near Canterbury, Kent.
What does it cost?
A day’s course including all materials, lunch and refreshments costs just £70 per person. There are no single supplements either.
What’s stained glass mosaic?
Also known as glass appliqué, it’s a style of glass art that uses offcuts of stained glass that would otherwise be wasted. Instead you get to transform them into a work of art to take home and treasure.
There’s more information here.
What can I make?
In a day, you can make a panel of around A5 size, with an almost unlimited number of pieces. You don’t need to be able to cut glass; if your hands aren’t strong enough, you can still make something beautiful from our huge range of precut pieces of glass.
Is there an age limit?
Under-18s (and over 80s too!) can take part, if they’re safe handling sharp pieces of glass. Under-18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult who’s also taking part.
Where are you and how do I get there?
We’re on the A252 in Chilham, midway between Ashford (Kent), Canterbury and Faversham. We’re a 15 minute stroll from Chilham railway station (for services between London, Canterbury & Ramsgate; change at Ashford if you’re catching the high speed train out of London). Chilham is also served by a number of buses from Ashford and Canterbury and is a short way from national cycle route 18.
If you’re coming to enjoy the area for several days, do bring your walking shoes & / or your cycle. Chilham is on the North Downs Way, a long distance footpath with stunning views, & has lots of other walking and cycling routes too.
