Course Start Dates
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.


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.

Want to review this course?

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!!


Had a lovely at Amanda's workshop with my friend....we had a productive day coming home with a beautiful stained glass ornament each that we'd made.....and we enjoyed it so much we've already booked to go back in October for another workshop when we're going to make christmas decorations!!!


Thoroughly enjoyed my day today and made a lovely stained glass butterfly. Amanda is a great teacher and ensures that you really know what to do before you start. Can highly recommend this workshop.


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!
