Workshop Information

What to Expect

You will learn basic traditional stained glass techniques, including glass cutting and painting. You will construct your own small stained glass panel. You will be working with artist, Sue Delbridge, to develop your ideas and select the best approach to create your design in glass and make your own unique panel.

Sue Delbridge is an artist who uses traditional methods of stained glass. She believes painting and drawing on glass creates images in colour and light that no other medium can, and draws inspiration from a variety of sources including illustration, fairy tales, medieval stained glass and tapestry and tattoo art. It is her desire to inspire a new generation to engage with the medium of stained glass as she believes it can be used to tell narratives about the world and the communities we live in today.
