Piotr Frac works with traditional methods but uses modern imagery to create his designs, drawing inspiration from Japanese art and iconography, tattooing, and street art.

He trained in “Opus Art” in the conservation and renovation of stained glass and art in the University of Silesia before moving on to learn the techniques required to create his own designs in the UK.

Three years ago, he started running stained glass-making courses in East London and found that he loves teaching and passing his extensive skills on to students.

This was a brilliant introduction to stained glass techniques, we learnt about different types of glass and the tools used for cutting and finishing glass. Piotr was encouraging and took us through the cutting process step by step. He was happy to answer our many questions! Highly recommend.
