Stained glass bank holiday getaway: two days of leaded stained glass, £190
If you’ve been looking forward to a short break in the UK, our stained glass bank holiday getaway could be just the thing. It’s also weather-proof. Just what you need at the start of May in the UK!
Our two day course in leaded stained glass will run on Sunday 1st and bank holiday Monday 2nd May, giving you the Saturday at leisure to explore the beautiful Kent Downs area of outstanding natural beauty or perhaps to take a day soaking up the heritage and history of nearby Canterbury. We’re nestled in the medieval village of Chilham, in the shadow of the Taittinger vineyards and close to Kings Wood, famous for its displays of bluebells in April and May.
Tell me more about the course.
On your two day course you’ll be welcomed with pastries and tea, coffee or another soft drink. We’ll then start by teaching you to cut glass (or brush up on more advanced cutting skills if you’ve done it before). Then you’ll create your very own design (we can help!), up to A4 in size, & you’ll get to choose your own glass too, from our wide range of colours and textures.
You’ll cut the pieces, then use an electric grinder to make them fit neatly together, before assembling your panel using the traditional leading technique. (Please note that this isn’t suitable for anyone who’s pregnant.) At the end of the two days you’ll get to take your masterpiece home with you.
What about lunch?
Lunch and refreshments are included in the price. We can cater for special diets too if you let us know in advance; vegetarian & vegan, lactose-free and coeliac for example.
What else is included in the cost?
The cost of £190 per person also includes all materials, the use of our well equipped studio and free onsite parking. Oh, and as much tuition and guidance as you need, plus friendly company.
Accommodation isn’t included, as some people like 5* hotels while others prefer camping! If a tipi is more your kind of thing, try this. Otherwise have a look at the “where to stay” page on our website.
