Stained Glass Rabbit

Diego’s passion for teaching Stained Glass Courses first began when he started teaching in England, at Halesowen College. The head of the collage’s art department saw some of Diego’s work and approached him to aks him to set up and deliver a number of courses in stained glass. These became remarkably popular.

Diego was a natural teacher, and his charisma and enthusiasm rubbed off on the students.

In 2003 he was awarded the City and Guilds 7302 Teachers certificate.

Today he regularly organises stained glass courses and courses in stained glass painting which he delivers to groups and individuals. You can admire here our student stained glass

Diego still maintains the same passion and enthusiasm. He teaches in English, Italian and Spanish his students have come from Canada, the USA, England, China, Russia, Australia, Argentina, Nigeria, Perù, Colombia, Japan, Korea…

Your Project

Before you arrive, we’ll agree on a project that you would like to work on. It can be your idea for a window or panel and when you get to the studio everything will be ready for you to get started. We’ll show you how to enlarge your idea into a cartoon which you’ll use to plan cut-lines and turn your paper design into a beautiful creation to keep and take home.

We’ll provide all the tools and materials you need, and help you source these when you go home.
