Through the Looking Glass

Inspired by the Physic Gardens these beautiful pieces would look lovely in my home. Unbelievably these were designed and created on a One Day Course at the Old Hall Cowbridge. Learners spent the first hour exploring the Physic Garden, taking simple thumbnail sketches or some used their mobile phones to take a photograph. The lines and colours identified from their image were used to inspire their design in which to create their stained glass. The course enabled you to cut the glass safely and accurately, how to grind the edges, apply copper foil and solder together. The tutor Ingrid Walker was so encouraging and provided all the materials needed. All you had to do was remember to wear closed toe shoes and have arms and legs covered. A fantastic day out.

My First blog post

This is my very first post. Blogging is a little out of my comfort zone so you will be going on a learning journey with me. My reason for using a blog is to really show off the fantastic work that is being achieved in our Art and Craft Courses. We have so many talented learners and tutors that I felt I wasn’t really doing my job properly or indeed giving them the recognition they deserve. Until now I have been busy posting on Facebook and sending out tweets but to be truthful its all hard selling adverts promoting our courses, when really the best form of marketing is to show you what you are missing out on. So lets get started.
