The apprentice will develop practical skills and knowledge in the research, design, craft, construction, and fitting of architectural and stained glass.
This can include conservation and restoration of stained glass as well as working on new commissions or architectural work. Projects range from small to large-scale public and private commissions, which can involve the research, design, and construction of new and existing stained glass within historical and/or contemporary contexts in public or domestic buildings.
The apprentice will develop practical skills in handling and cutting of glass, glass painting, leading, soldering, and cementing. This is essential to creating stained glass.
In addition to these practical skills, apprentices will develop skills in dealing with people and working as a member of a team, they will learn to research and analyse historical and technical information.
