Learn the ancient craft-skills of stained glass as still applied to contemporary stained glass design today. Join us and be inspired by historic and modern glass artists and then design, choose, cut and assemble glass to create your own vibrant and stunning works of art in stained glass. You will have opportunities to try leading, copper foiling and glass painting.
Tools are provided. There will be a materials cost of £30.oo depending on the glass you choose to order.
Experience is not required by we welcome participants who have done glass work before. Jill is happy to discuss your ideas for your own project in advance of the course if you have any questions.
These two course runs for three terms every year, each term consists of 10 classes (Thursday evenings or Thursday afternoons). We take a break over half term. Please check the Thursday afternoon dates carefully as the 10 sessions may not be consecutive due to instrument making taking place in the workshop.
This course is suitable for those with no experience.

Tutor | Jill Fordham
Jill has worked as a locally based stained glass artist for 25 years. Her work includes taking commissions from private clients, exhibiting regularly and teaching, and she enjoys following her own inspiration as much as encouraging and inspiring other’s creativity. The glass techniques she works with are leading, copper foiling, fusing and slumping, and glass painting. A source of inspiration for many of her designs is capturing fluid forms, and using glass to recreate the way these forms are affected by light and she also like geometric patterns! Find out more on her website: Hurdy Gurdy Glass.
Please note, the Stained Glass afternoon course dates vary according to Cambridge Woodwind Makers’ courses that share the same workshop. There may still be changes in dates, they will always be replaced by other Thursday afternoon classes.

“I knew I would enjoy the class but I was surprised at how therapeutic the process was. What a lovely class!”
“I had my window fitted into my bathroom door! I’m so excited and absolutely love it. I’m hugely proud of myself as when I started Jill’s classes I ouldn’t even cut a piece of glass straight. The fact that I managed to make a whole window is testament to Jill’s expertise and patience. Please can you thank her profusely as I’m chuffed to pieces that I’ve achieved my little dream. Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome.”
