Enjoy a relaxed, fun and informal day making stained glass sun-catchers, funky tea light holders or mobiles using the Tiffany foiling method.
​You will be carefully taken through all the processes, helping you to develop the skills of glass cutting, grinding, foiling and soldering.
Each student will go home with some wonderful and individual pieces that they have created that day. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

I offer two very different types of stained glass workshop:
Tiffany Style/Copper Foil method
This refers to stained glass work in the style of Louis Comfort Tiffany where each piece of glass is  wrapped in copper foil before being soldered together. This method is generally used for making gifts and smaller pieces such as sun-catchers.

Traditional Lead - Panels or Stained Glass Windows 
In these classes we use the centuries old method which has hardly changed since the 12th century. A panel or window consists of pieces of coloured glass held together strips of lead came which is then soldered at the joins and finally cemented to create a weatherproof window.

Such a well taught class. Very clear demonstrations and instructions as we went along. Extremely wide range of mayon offer to use and to top it all a filling freshly cooked lunch. Can't wait to attend again


Very well organised with lots of materials available to use. Each step was clearly demonstrated and if you were still uncertain Gihga helped you through. Gihga clearly explained how to use the equipment safely and kept a watchful eye on us without interfering. It was a lovely day - every one pitched in and the lunch was very good. You don't have to be an expert, just relax and have fun.


This day course was an absolute joy. I gave this course to my mum for her 70th birthday and we both enjoyed it immensely. Gigha was an excellent teacher and very patient and we came away with beautiful pieces tealight holders. We will be back


I am so happy to leave a review for you Ghia. I went to one of your Christmas workshops in Bideford last year and just had the best day ever. I would never have believed I could make three angels and a decorated tree to hang on my own Christmas tree. I look forward to taking another class so I can increase my collection of angels.


I did a bunting and mobile course and it was amazing and I’m now completely hooked.

Gigha was a great teacher and was so patient and made everything anyone wanted to do possible. She showed us all the different techniques well but was more than happy to go over them again on a more one-to-one basis if needed.

I was so happy with what I produced on the day and that was all down to Gigha.

I would really highly recommend any of her classes and I really look forward to doing another course in the future.


Had a lovely day doing the bunting and mobile course,the day went so fast.
Gigha is an excellent teacher and explained and demonstrated the different
techniques very well.Would thoroughly recommend the course. Look forward to attending
another course very soon.

I attended the 'Funky Tea Light Holder' in March. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, lovely relaxed atmosphere with good instruction. Great start to learning more about this glass craft, and came away with a fairly acceptable tea light holder. Look forward to attending another one in the future.


We thoroughly enjoyed the day, the company and the lovely lunch. It was excellent value. I can't tell you how pleased I was with my lightcatcher which now has pride of place in the lounge window. We'll be back. Sarah & Debbie
