“I had perfect fits first time”

I have been working on a gift for a friend and am amazed at how quickly and exacting it came together. From the design to the patina stage it was effortless.

Why did I develop the Stained Glass Foundation Course?

What I love most about teaching is the moment when a student starts to feel confident trying new things. That’s when I know their creativity is ready to fly.

I’m a qualified teacher and have included ALL the practical information you need to make stained glass in this course but my experience tells me that learning this craft isn’t just about hard skills. My mission is also about nurturing confidence so you feel able to try new things. It’s about fostering pride in your work so you can show it off to the world.

I’ve worked with hundreds of beginners – both face to face and online – and watched as they grow in skills and confidence until they’re ready to take anything on. That’s what I want for you and why I created this Foundation Course.

Milly is patient and kind and is interested in everything you do. I love how she got us to look at things and came up with ideas that we hadn’t thought of.

A super-quick look at the Stained Glass Foundation Course

Is the Stained Glass Foundation Course right for you?

Who is A Star Is Born suited to?

Who IS this Foundation Course for?

Who IS this Foundation Class for?
  • The class is suitable for both complete beginners and also refreshers or those quite new to stained glass. It is suitable for those who have never cut a piece of glass before but is also helpful if you have done a class or want to improve your techniques and knowledge.
  • The course is self-directed so you need to be the sort of person who is motivated enough to check in and follow along. All the answers to your questions will be in the course but you will need to log in, watch it, read it and answer fun quizzes!
  • Stained glass is a very special craft. You need to have the spirit to try something new, a patient outlook and be willing to practise accuracy. The best stained glass is made by those who practise and improve their accuracy.
Who ISN'T this Foundation Course for?
  • This course is not aimed at accomplished stained glass artists. It is designed for those who are either at the start or are early days into their stained glass journey.
  • A patient, accurate approach is needed for this craft. If you want everything done yesterday and are irritated by the very word ‘precise’ this may not be for you!
  • If you have done some stained glass already and have fixed views about how things should be done this course may not be for you. Part of the joy of stained glass is embracing different ways of doing the same thing and choosing the best one for you.
  • This course does not teach the Lead Came method of construction. You will learn some skills that are common to both techniques but this course concentrates on the Copper Foil method of construction. This is because the Copper Foil or Tiffany method is cleaner, takes up less space and is easier to learn for beginners.
  • Finally, this is an online course. If you feel you are the sort of person who needs direct face to face tuition then I would urge you to look for a local course initially. You will be most welcome to come back here later when you want to refresh or develop your skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can't do it, it's too hard! I'll never be good enough!

The simple answer is yes, you can!

I’ve put all my teaching experience into making sure that the level of the course is suitable for absolute beginners and those who struggle a bit at the most difficult stages. Everything has been carefully designed to make sure you finish this course with all the techniques, information and tips you’ll need to confidently create stained glass.

I'm worried I don't have enough space

Not everyone has access to a dedicated studio space but provided you follow some sensible guidelines you can have a stained glass corner safely in your home somewhere.

Many of my students have found somewhere to work, including utility rooms, covered porches, garages and sheds. The Copper Foil – also known as Tiffany – method that I teach in this course is very neat and tidy. All you need is about 2ft X 3ft and some form of ventilation for soldering. Some of the steps can even be done when you’re watching television!

So space CAN be found. With a bit of creativity even the most unpromising nooks and crannies can be put to use.

Don’t you need lots of special tools that are hard to track down?
Feel confident about all the tools with this comprehensive eBook. Worth $15

Feel confident about the tools with this comprehensive eBook

You may or may not already have the essential tools for stained glass. Either way, there is an explanatory slideshow of the most important tools in the Tools & Materials Module.

I am also including a special Bonus ‘discovering Tools & Materials’ eBook for all purchasers. You can use it as a guide for buying or a checklist. It includes a ‘Milly’s Buying Guide‘ with specific brands to help you make good choices and a list of online suppliers worldwide.

Isn't glass really dangerous?

Its normal and healthy to be anxious about starting to work with glass. After all it is a sharp material and it can cut you.

The course contains thorough Health and Safety guidelines and if you follow this advice the chances of serious injury are very low. Splinters and small cuts do occasionally happen but basic precautions make them much less likely.

Overcoming the psychological fear of breaking glass is one of the biggest hurdles. We were all taught about the dangers of glass as children; how we shouldn’t play with it and NEVER to touch broken glass. And what am I going to teach? How to ‘play’ with and touch broken glass! What is surprising is how quickly people become confident handling this beautiful material. I’ve seen it time and time again.

Treating glass with the respect and care it deserves goes a long way towards making a safe environment.

How will I know if I’m doing it wrong? You can’t see my mistakes.
Thorough trouble-shooting sections to help rescue mistakes

Thorough trouble-shooting sections to help rescue mistakes

Ah, but I can! I’ve seen lots of students get into difficulties with stained glass and have used all my experience to anticipate any problems you may have.

I had great fun in each Module compiling a detailed section called ‘It’s All Gone Wrong!’ that focusses on common problems and how to fix them. I take you through each mistake by first showing you what it looks like and then showing you how to rectify each problem.

Does it matter that I’m not very good with a computer?

Absolutely not. If you can log in and enter a password you’ll be fine. The course platform is so easy to use you won’t even notice it! We have a dedicated support contact at hand if you do have any problems finding your way around.

I don’t have time to take another course.

In total I have estimated that between 10-20 hours of course time will be enough for a complete beginner to learn all the different skills to complete the star.

Those who have done a bit of stained glass will take between 5-10 hours to brush up on their skills and become a confident stained glass maker.

Does this course come with tools and glass?

No, you will need to buy these separately.

If you don’t have a local stained glass store the Bonus Tools and Materials eBook provides you with a list of recommended online stores worldwide. Most suppliers have a comprehensive breakage guarantee.

Will I learn anything new if I’ve already done a course?

Yes, definitely. This course will fill in the gaps that were missed in a busy class environment.

Lots of people have written to tell me that the course helped them in the areas they were stuck with. It goes over the essential techniques but adds much more detail about each process than would be appropriate if faced with a class that are impatient to ‘get on with it’!

This course will help you bridge the gap between being a beginner with uncertain knowledge to being a confident stained glass maker.
