Glass Painting Workshop with Derek Hunt

*** FULLY BOOKED *** Please contact us for waiting list


Event category: Adult Workshop

Price: £120 per person including all materials, equipment and tuition
Location: The Stained Glass Museum, South Triforium, Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB7 4DL
Book

The art of painting on glass was mastered in the medieval period. Over the following centuries, stained glass artists have used painting techniques to draw with line and light, to create depth and detail, and to control the atmospheric quality of light’s transmission through glass.
In this practical workshop, glass artist Derek Hunt will teach traditional painting techniques. Using vitreous pigment and silver stain on clear glass, students learn to work with a variety of brushes, sticks, quills and sponges to create different effects and shading in both wet and dry matts. Glass work will be fired at intervals throughout the workshop, and ready to take home at the end of the day.
