About the Course

Amanda has been teaching copper foil technique stained glass for around 8 years. There is a strong emphasis on fun, whilst learning a fascinating traditional craft.
It is a full day, usually starting around 9 - 9.30am and finishing around 5 - 5.30pm (although this can be flexible).
Following a quick H&S chat, we will start by looking at the huge variety of glass sheet available, and how it can inspire your work.
We then move on to how to create a pattern and then use this to cut your glass.
The next stage in the day will be focused on grinding the cut pieces and copper foiling, in preparation to assemble your design together.
After a break for lunch, the second part of the day will be devoted to soldering your piece together - the most tricky part to master, but very rewarding when you see your finished work of glass art!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included in the course price - there will be NO EXTRA CHARGES!
Tea, coffee and cold drinks will be available throughout the day, as learning is thirsty work!
A light lunch is also provided, along the lines of homemade soup and freshly cooked baguette. If you have special dietary requirements, please let me know, and I will try to accommodate - or you can bring your own packed lunch if preferred.
At the end of the day, you will have at least one, but sometimes two small hanging pieces to take home with you ( depending on your rate of learning ).
I can also supply a booklet I have put together, if you feel you may want to continue with stained glass further at home. It contains some useful pointers, and goes through the different stages that have been covered on the day.

I have just spent a fantastic day on a one to one with Amanda at her lovely home/studio. The sun was shining and the birds were singing all day.
I learned how to cut class, chose different textured glass for the item I was going to make and how it would blend with other colours and textures. I had a go at grinding the glass to make it smooth, then I learned to attach the copper foil before soldering all pieces together.
Amanda has much patience and helps when required.
I came away with 3 pieces: a heart, bunny rabbit and a dragonfly.
I took with me a broken butterfly of glass art I had bought in Canada in 1990 and Amanda very kindly repaired it.
Amanda provided soup and warm baguette for lunch and drinks throughout our day, which started at 9am and finished at 5pm.
Would I recommend? MOST CERTAINLY

I thoroughly enjoyed my day spent with Amanda. She was very helpful and a great teacher. Amanda was clear with her instructions and with having a one to one session she had time to explain all the processes involved in making my two pieces. She was very encouraging and I felt at ease trying to make something new. I was very pleased with the end results and my glass panel and heart are now proudly hanging in my windows. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.

A fantastic day with a very gifted artist and teacher very patient, explained each step concisely and thoroughly. I have been on other glass courses and this was by far the best and most informative. Made to feel very welcome, not only great experience of learning Amanda was great company. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

Amanda is a patient and pleasant teacher. I managed to make a lovely glass heart and a dragonfly within the day, with plenty of tea and a tasty lunch provided. Not done anything like this before? You have nothing to fear. Loved the learning, and the resulting items have been much admired. Thanks, Amanda

We had a really lovely day with Amanda. She is very friendly and made the day really enjoyable. It was great to try something new and leave with a delightful blue tit. She was patient and a perfectionist so we had all the time needed to take us through each stage of the process. She showed us the variety of glass available and we could choose what we wanted to make from a selection of templates. When we saw the Xmas decorations she is making we have booked another workshop in October to have another go!!

Just back from a lovely day spent with Amanda. A very patient and methodical teacher.
I leant lots of new skills and felt confident very quickly with Amanda's encouragement (plus copious amounts of tea were supplied!).
Successfully made a beautiful glass robin.
Excellent day!
