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.
