"Glass and Light". October 2013

Course example


GLASS COURSE 2013 at the Patch, Pillowell starting on the evening of the 24th, and continuing throughout Friday Saturday and sunday, 25th - 27th October


This workshop will begin by exploring black and white mark making through drawing, painting and basic printmaking techniques on paper. These images will inform the the way we work on the glass, when we will use such techniques as engraving, abraiding, enamelling, painting and silver staining



 The Forest is situated between the Severn and the Wye, the triangle of land between Gloucester, Ross on Wye and  Chepstow. It is an area of mystery and natural beauty where among the trees, there are standing stones, roaming sheep, wild boar, deer and a sculpture trail. My workshop in Pillowell is in a paddock with the forest as its border on two sides


All participants and tutors of the course will eat together on the Thursday evening, after which Catrin and I will introduce ourselves and tell you something about the course. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the course and we will share lunch. 


 £250 for the weeknd

£50 reduction for students

 we are setting up a permaculture garden around my workshop, and I would be interested in part payment of the course being exchanged for work on the land. I would pay in kind £10 per hour, so you can decide how much you would like to exchange, and we can arrange dates for this to happen when you book.


Accomodation - B&B, Self catering or basic camping available nearby. I can give you details when you contact me. There is also a pub that does very nice food. All these are in walking distance
