Irisations Formation au vitrail : Introduction

It is not required to have skills in drawing or painting to register. Beginners are welcome. The following skills and abilities are required: manual dexterity, sensitivity to shapes and colors, ability to prolonged standing, good near vision (millimeter-scale accuracy).

Classes are all-level. You can design and make a personal project, as of the first stained-glass panel. We also suggest patterns depending on each level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and technics. The following technics are tought in classes: lead and copper-foil stained-glass, grisaille glass-painting.

Workshops are for beginners only and last from one to three days depending on the technics. It is an opportunity to get initiated to leaded stained-glass and grisaille glass-painting. There is a pattern provided for these workshops.

Last but not least, vocational training modules are offered to companies and individuals on a regular basis, especially towards adults that consider retraining.
