BAEC runs Stained Glass courses for beginners, improvers and intermediates at the Kentwood centre with our experienced tutor Nicky Calvert.
Equipment and materials
Materials for stained glass classes will normally be discussed during the first session of the course and we recommend that you do not purchase equipment until you have agreed the list with the tutor. You are asked to bring any tools or materials you already have to the first session. Please note that quality Stained Glass equipment can be a substantial investment; talk to your tutor as soon as possible if you have concerns about additional costs for your course.
Safety in the Classroom
The maximum number of learners in each group is 10. We advise you to enrol early to secure your place.
Our learners' wellbeing and safety is our prime concern and we ask that you work with us to ensure social distancing and safe working practices. There are enough tables for each student to have their own workstation and/or there is enough room at shared tables for students to work safely. We realise that specialist equipment is used by multiple users at times; there are sanitising facilities in the classroom for your convenience. Other procedures e.g. protective equipment to use grinders, soldering irons etc. will be agreed at the first session.
Your tutor will demonstrate techniques on his/her own project, and direct you while you work on your item. Social distance should be respected at all times, and each student must be the only person touching their work.
To assist us in keeping classrooms clean and clutter-free, please only bring what you need and arrive promptly, but not before the start of your session.
Only bottled water in a sealed container is allowed, please keep it in your bag when not in use.
If you would like to speak to the tutor, let us know and we will arrange for our experienced teacher to contact you.
