The course is intended for students, both with and without experience in painting on glass and / or gilding of glass.  You will learn how to decorate the glass with real  metal leaf, glass paints (which will be fired in the kilns), etc.  This workshop enables anyone to work with this challenging process which gives exciting results. With Frances as a teacher, you will have five days in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere where your creativity can flourish.

In this course, students will learn traditional and contemporary methods of embellishing precious leaf.  Working on both surfaces of the glass with the glass paints and metal leaf, and exploring hot and cold gilding, as well as engraving, students will explore the space between layers, creating echoes and reflections with a variety of precious leaf and glass paint.
