RESIDENTIAL GLASS COURSE
Sandra Lindsay studied glass manufacturing at North Glasgow College, Scotland, and after completing the course she taught at the college until obtaining a position with Pearsons Glass.
From 2006 Sandra worked in her home studio in Scotland producing artworks for galleries and private clients. Some of these pieces employed a variety of techniques such as leading, copper foiling, painting, and fusing. Sandra now works from her studio in France in the beautiful region of Lot.
The introductory course is suitable for beginners with little or no previous glass experience. It is intended to develop a sense of design and an ability to transfer that into a finished glass panel. We will manufacture the panel using the traditional method of lead came, but the design can be abstract and contemporary. You can produce your own design or use one from the studio. The choice is yours.
Guests should arrive on the Sunday and get to know one another over the evening meal before starting the course on Monday. If your flight arrives on the Saturday please get in touch with us to check availability for accommodation on the Saturday evening. The course runs for 5 days Monday to Friday with a break for morning coffee and a light lunch, then dinner in the evening (5 evening meals). For one evening we will recommend a restaurant for dining out. There should be 6 hours of tuition per day but this is flexible, it could be more, depending on how well we are progressing. I would hope that this course will give you an insight into how the creation of beautiful, glass works of art are achievable. The course is intended to give you some skills to proceed further, if you wish. But most of all – it should be FUN.
We would recommend that you take out travel insurance.
We can collect you from Brive airport or train station.
As all the meals are prepared here at home please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.
