STAINED GLASS WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

8  6th form students and a staff member of the Art Department at University Academy Holbeach attended an afternoon’s workshop, led by Gillian and David Wing of Strawberry Glass.  They learnt about the traditional skills of stained glass making using the copper-foil method, made famous by Louis Tiffany during the early part of the 20th century. The event was organised by HCCT and funded by Heritage Lottery.
