Glass painting and decorating is much simpler than stained glass yet creates an equally beautiful piece of artwork.  The painting technique can look similar to traditional stained glass although colours are generally brighter and more versatile. Glass painting and decorating can be as challenging or as simple as you like; kiln fired or not. No great painting or drawing skills are required – a little practice and patience are all you need.

Many course dates are not available as the Creative Glass Guild is closed for renovations until late August.
