Stained glass is a well recognised traditional craft often viewed within the windows of sacred and historical buildings with spellbinding designs that use bright colours and bold details. Join expert glass artist, Kerrie Hanna, as you learn how to create beautiful designs for glass as well as paint mixing and paint techniques to complete the linework for multiple pieces on coloured glass.
Kerrie will also demonstrate the tools and skills required for glass cutting as well as how to work safely with glass. Each participant will paint 2-3 final pieces within the 4 hours utilising the inspiration of the stained glass windows in St Patrick’s cathedral; these will then be brought back to the artist’s studios to undergo the firing process for collection from the venue 1-2 weeks after the event.
