The training

The Swiss School of Stained Glass and Creation offers the possibility to a very large public to acquire the basics of the traditional technique of stained glass. This course does not require any previous training and is open to anyone who wishes to become familiar with the art of stained glass.
The School's workshop has a unique capacity and the courses are supervised by a professional and experienced team.

Course curriculum:

Each participant makes two pieces. The first "white" stained glass panel allows for a review of all the steps involved in making it. The second panel is a personal project in colored glass.


Theoretical introduction and safety.
Drawing of the first stained glass window, cutting of the glass, lead setting, soldering and finishing.
