Painting on glass is important and it adds another vital dimension to coloured glass, Tuition  is availablefor the beginner, to advanced glass painting in this challenging medium.  The paint is composed of  metal oxides and glass frit. When fired in a kiln the paint becomes fused onto the surface of the glass and is then completely permanent.  I am able to take the student to a high level of multi-layer painting in comparitively short time.

Paintng days at the studio are usually Thursdays, but times are flexible and can be arranged to suit.

Del's Panel (after Chagall)

 

"I really  appreciated your 'tuition', you have such a wide knowledge and
experience of glass and in particular painting. What I liked was the
fact that you could see what I wanted to do and you were able to
stretch me beyond what I thought I would be able to achieve. I am
really pleased with my panel".

What a privilege to be taught by Andrew Taylor, stained glass artist. I would like to thank Andrew for teaching me his many years of knowledge, over a course of three days, helping me to produce a painted stained glass window that I am more than pleased with. Taught in a welcoming, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, where Andrew is very enthusiastic and supportive, to guide and share his knowledge and experience. I would thoroughly recommend this course."

Dell's Panel After Marc Chagall)

Dell made her design by doing  a freehand copy of  a section of a window by chagall. Her panel has a lovely texture of paint, which beds in and unifies the glass with a narrative.  It reminds  me  a bit of a cave painting
