Discover the relaxing technique of glass painting and make your very own exciting and unique hand-painted suncatcher that you'll be proud to hang in your home with this online class and kit!

During the live online class, your teacher will demonstrate the technique of glass painting, the technique of applying an outliner on the glass, as well as mixing different mediums. Then she will guide you as you make your own beautiful artwork.

To begin you will learn about glass painting in general, as well as materials and techniques which can be used to achieve various results. Then using this Christmas stencil or one of the other provided stencils, you will transfer this pattern on square glass using an outliner and special glass paints. If you want to use your own stencil please confirm the design with the teacher to ensure it is suitable.

This virtual workshop runs for three hours, providing enough time to show you different techniques and get to a point where you will feel comfortable on your own playing around with colours. You will also have ample to ask questions in real-time throughout the class.

The best thing about doing this class online is that:

  • You can finish your artwork at your own pace, with no hurry and stress if it takes you a bit longer (and trust us, it can take longer when it comes to choosing colours).
  • You still will have some materials left which you can use to create another masterpiece!

After the class, you will get chat support in our Facebook group. That means that you can send your teacher questions and photos of your artwork if you need any help or advice.

Please note:
  • The listed time for this workshop is flexible. You can request any other day that suits you and we will do our best to make it available.
  • This class is not suitable for pregnant women.

Stunning stained glass and ceramic painting

4.9 (45)

I am a ceramic and glass artist who originally hails from Russia but over 5 years ago moved to Australia and now based in Tweed Heads, North NSW. I graduated from art school in my youth, but applied myself to the field of economics before returning to my roots with a course in Interior Decoration in the International Design School in Moscow in 2014 after 10 years of auditing.

To quit my job was a big desicion but now I can say - the best in my life. My family used to say that hobby can't be your full time job, but I disagreed.

I specialise in glass and ceramic painting, having started the former in 2013 in Moscow. I learned glass and ceramic painting by myself, step by step, year by year. And still learning: learning new techniques, new materials, new surfaces...

Constantly developing my work, I am currently in a period of transition and evolving from my previous style. I found contemporary art interesting to me and decided to use my mediums to create some pieces of art in another way.

If you are the one who loves stained glass painting, painted ceramic tiles or plates, fluid art...if you want to learn how to do it yoursellf, you are more than welcome to my workshops! I will tell you everything that I know.
