Copper Foil Technique Stained Glass

X

Description

Amanda has been teaching copper foil technique stained glass for around 10 years. There is a strong emphasis on fun, whilst learning a fascinating traditional craft. * Currently, maximum of two people will be taught in a day, if you are booking as a couple / friendship group. If you are booking for yourself or one person, I will not mix people together, and so the day will be yours to create!!!! Covid precautions are in place - you will have your own set of sanitised tools to use for the day! It is a full day, usually starting around 9.30am and finishing around 4.30 - 5.00pm (although this can be flexible). I have a good selection of patterns for beginners, however, if you would like to design your own, please just email me a picture of the design prior to your day. This is just to make sure it is possible for you to achieve this in the time available! 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 a bit of glass cutting practise - straight and curvy lines! After choosing what you would like to make, 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 ( supplied by me, unless you would prefer to bring your own), 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 two, but sometimes three 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.
