Please do not wear any clothing, especially wide sleeves, that can drag in the paint. Workshop presented in Nederlands-English. Minimum 3, maximum 4 persons.
Reactions of previous workshop participants:
“Thanks for the fine working environment and the interesting projects and sending the photos… Fantastic lesson.”
Ellen van der Leeden, Atelier Lux-Nova
“The workshop was extremely beneficial for me. I thought the build-up of methods over the 2 days was excellent, and the number of varied sample pieces we got a chance to produce. Am looking forward very much to implementing and developing what I have learned in my own work. I appreciated your open and patient approach as an instructor, and the extensive scope of work that was included over the 2 days.”
Margaret, West Kerry, Ireland
“I learned a lot of new techniques which I can/will certainly apply in my future projects.”
Chris van der Werff, CrW Stained Glass
“Found it very cozy and above all a very informative workshop. Busy, learned a lot. My work was not as nice as I’d like, yet I’ve learned enough to get myself nicely started. Thanks!”
Kitty Selles, Kitty Glas-in-lood
“For me it was a very instructive workshop and would be worth repeating.”
“Thank you so much for an absolutely supergreat workshop! I really learnt so much during those days. I can use all this as a springboard for future exercises with glass painting. I’m so happy that I made this journey. So good to meet all the nice people.”

“I really enjoyed the workshop and was inspired by the new techniques we learned! It was nice to meet other colleagues and what I experienced as very positive was the openness regarding glazier techniques…”

“I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. The work you showed demonstrated how much is possible with glass, much more than the rigid windows with horizontal and vertical lines. I love spacious and free-form work. I already have ideas for contemporary application of glass painting, I’m inspired!”
