Description:

Learn the basic skills of copper-foiled glass in a day and leave with your 15cm square panel to keep. Maximum three people, £100 each (reductions for group booking).

! Not suitable for children or pregnant women !

The course is taught in a small dedicated stained glass studio, all the tools and materials are provided to learn the basic skills of copper-foiled glass so that by the end you will have created a small panel from a template to keep. You will learn something of the history of the technique, and Iain will be on hand throughout to help you. As well as your panel, you will leave with hand-outs providing information should you want to continue this wonderful hobby.

Copper-foiling (or Tiffany technique) is an alternative to leading which allows for more intricate designs, with finer joins between glass pieces. It also allows for varied 3d shapes such as lampshades. However it isn’t weatherproof, and hence isn’t used in front doors and exterior windows. If you'd eventually like to make more detailed smaller pieces, or maybe 3d objects, choose this course.

What's included in the price?

Everything to make your panel is provided, including all materials, and use of tools. Just bring a packed lunch, an apron or clothes you don't mind getting messy, and your enthusiasm!
