5 star rating, 4 reviewers.
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!
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.
