The beginners stained glass course is designed for those who have little or no skills in cutting glass. The aim being to finish a piece roughly A4 size with 10-15 pieces of glass. There will be help with design, if necessary, and choice of colours. Students are taught to cut glass, use the grinders, tape up their pieces and then solder them together and finish with patina etc. The course is aimed to give a basic knowledge in using copper foil ( Tiffany style) to make items in stained glass so that the student should be able to continue to explore the medium on their own.
There are only 3-4 students on the course.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Set in an idyllic spot, even on wet November days! We had a grand time and were very well fed with homemade lunches. On top of that I created something rather lovely considering I'd not tried it before. I would definitely recommend Brenda's courses and I'm hoping to go on another one soon and learn a different technique.
Spent a rewarding 2 days in beautiful countryside, with a brilliant (and patient!) tutor, lovely surroundings and the opportunity to try something new. I achieved far more than I expected and came away with a stained glass panel I'm really proud of! Thanks Brenda!
