working with glass

The AGC in collaboration with the internationally renowned Swansea Architecural Glass Department at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Swansea, organises and hosts a range of courses for professionals and interested amateurs.

Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses

The glass department offers a portfolio of courses from BA to PhD specialising in architectural glass and glass in public arts, either as the core subject or as part of a programme of study related to another subject or profession.

All the courses have a strong vocational element that draws together the best traditions of hand working in glass, with the latest creative technologies. For more information on courses visit the .


The AGC runs a range of workshops each year, many of which are suited to both the novice and those wishing to update or extend their skills. Past workshops have covered skills such as fusing, sandblasting, glass painting, adhesives and bonding, gilding and architectural mosaics.
