Meet your teacher

Diego’s passion for teaching Stained Glass Courses first began when he started teaching in England, at Halesowen College. The head of the collage’s art department saw some of Diego’s work and approached him to aks him to set up and deliver a number of courses in stained glass. These became remarkably popular.
Diego was a natural teacher, and his charisma and enthusiasm rubbed off on the students.
In 2003 he was awarded the City and Guilds 7302 Teachers certificate.
Today he regularly organises stained glass courses and courses in stained glass painting which he delivers to groups and individuals. You can admire here our student stained glass
Diego still maintains the same passion and enthusiasm. He teaches in English, Italian and Spanish his students have come from Canada, the USA, England, China, Russia, Australia, Argentina, Nigeria, Perù, Colombia, Japan, Korea…

For me, the magic of stained glass comes from the way in which coloured glass becomes transformed by light, the way in which the tiny bubbles trapped within the glass, give it movement and sparkle. The magic becomes complete once paint is applied to the glass, creating delicate shading, subduing the light in places whilst highlighting it in others. This art form is unique. It has transparency within its soul and this becomes glorious and radiant with light.

Leaded Stained Glass Course

What will I learn?

The leaded stained glass technique is the one we use most regularly for our commissions. We will share our experience and good practices with you to teach you each phase of this craft so at the end of the course you’ll be able to continue practice alone.
