Stained Glass Skills Showcased In Burnham

Date: 9 May 2007

Shining and beautiful examples of stained glass have graced churches and historical buildings in Britain for centuries, and now the tradition is being kept alive by a class held in Somerset.

A group of students meet in Burnham every Tuesday afternoon at the adult education centre, and are taught the intricacies and finer details of stained glass skills as part of the Somerset County Council's adult education classes.

Tutor Angie Dibble helps each student plan and make a variety of stained glass window projects from start to finish. Some of the projects worked on range from ambitious windows to smaller sun-catchers and decorative mirrors.

The students are just as varied as the projects they make, proving you are never too old or too young to learn and enjoy this craft. Students range from absolute beginners to others doing a qualification course.
