This course develops skills in working with and designing stained glass including cutting, leading, soldering fusing and painting on glass with enamels. Attention will be paid to how technical skills and an awareness and understanding of the use of light can inform the development of related ideas to enable students to make a series of samples and finished works. Students will be encouraged to develop increasingly innovative and experimental approaches to the medium supported by research and development of visual ideas.
