Stained Glass

Our stained glass classes teach students all the basics to create the most beautiful pieces. 

From simple geometric plates to Christmas decorations bound to twinkle in the fairy lights, your make is bound to be eye-catching and smile-inducing. Create hanging decorations inspired by nature, or even refined glass art installations based on a wide range of designs. During our classes we offer something achievable for everybody. 

A class taught by a seasoned glassworking professional, this is your chance to try your hand at this technique, and come away with something truly delightful in the process.

Lino Printing

Whether a gloriously simple nature print or a more complex multi-tonal work, lino printing is so rewarding. Take a simple linoleum tile and carve away a design, before inking up and printing - once or many times. 

Back in fashion due to artists such as Mark Hearld and Angela Harding, naive, nature-inspired lino print artworks are all the rage. Yet they are so unique and personal, shaped precisely by your own vision, that your creativity will be given free rein in our lino printing classes. 

Simple relief prints of seed heads and animals make beautiful cards, and a wonderful memento of a new skill learnt. Linocuts meanwhile create one-off works of art of astounding beauty and complexity. Be led by our expert to truly understand the processes involved.

Cyanotype / Sun Printing 

This camera-free technique uses the sun’s light and found objects or overlaid markings, plus iron compound washes, to create stunning cyan-blue and white artworks.  A technique perfect for capturing the beauty of nature and found objects, cyanotype printing is also a great opportunity to be creative and expressive, using different mediums to block out sunlight to differing degrees - creating some spectacular results.

Our fairy light shade courses offer that bit more whimsy. Another wonderful touch for the interior design fan (they also make the perfect present), these courses teach you lampshade making on a miniature scale, creating shades for a string of fairy lights.
