About the Course

One day Copper Foil Stained Glass Taster at Lincoln Castle.
Explore the possibilities of copper foil stained glass!

The copper foil technique, developed in the Tiffany Studios, is ideal for decorative panels, sun catchers and mirrors as well as lampshades and other three dimensional work. Copper tape and solder is used to create a seam joining the pieces of glass. The one-day workshops are suitable for beginners. They are practical and engaging, providing a choice of patterns and a large selection of coloured and textured glass for you to choose from. As we work with small numbers the way time is spent is tailored to individual needs. You will go home with your own piece of copper-foiled stained glass.

Skills learnt:

selecting suitable glass
scoring and breaking glass
grinding the pieces
applying copper foil tape
soldering the seams and attaching hanging rings
polishing for display

Participant Information: Suitable for ages 16 +. Please wear casual, comfortable clothes and preferably an apron or old shirt

Want to review this course?

When I visited the Heritage Skills Centre earlier in the year it felt like a friendly place and I wasn't disappointed last Saturday. I commend you and your staff for creating such a warm and supportive environment, it was a real pleasure to spend the day there. If David was disappointed to only have two students he certainly didn't show it and I gained a lot from the course.

I look forward to returning for the Lime Pointing course.
