STAINED GLASS CODE: 121 Mon 19.00-21.00 10 sessions, 3 terms.

Full fee £110.00, 60+ £104.60, benefit £77.00, per term

Tutor: Teri Lockton

Students will learn to cut glass to a pattern (or “cartoon”), lead up the glass into a stained glass panel, solder all of the joins and waterproof the panel by using leaded light cement. We will also learn how to design for stained glass and students can then embark on their own projects. Those who wish can also learn the copper foil technique, invented by Louis Tiffany and now familiar to us in “Tiffany” lamps and lightcatchers. There will be many books available to inform and inspire you. Tools will be available for students’ use at the beginning of the class and then, for those of you who wish to carry on the skills learnt, a list of tools to purchase and suggested suppliers will be available. I look forward to welcoming you to the class!

Autumn is traditionally the time for planning and preparing a vegetable garden and this short course looks at both the establishment and running of a vegetable garden. We consider the siting of the plot, plot management and how much to grow. Potential problems and possible solutions are discussed with the emphasis on organic management. Following this there will be the opportunity to discuss issues surrounding general garden maintenance and answer any questions you might have, particularly if they are raised in advance!
