Copper foiled (Tiffany style) stained glass course in beautiful Kent

X

Description

Join us for a wonderful two days of Tiffany copper foil stained glass in our lovely studio. We'll introduce you to the wonderful world of stained glass (or give you the chance to expand your skills if you've done it before). Warning- glass art can be addictive! We accept no liability if this course kindles a passion in you for stained glass, glass fusing, glass casting, lampworking... This Tiffany copper foil stained glass 2 day experience is perfect both for beginners and those with some previous experience that they'd like to build on. Why not have a long weekend in the beautiful Kent Downs. Visit Kent & enjoy a Kent staycation! (See our "where to stay" page if you'd like to book accommodation nearby.) You can choose whether to make a Tiffany stained glass suncatcher (e.g. we've had some beautiful birds made on our courses) or a more regularly shaped panel (e.g. a square, circle or rectangle). What's involved? If you're new to stained glass, we'll also teach you to cut and shape glass with confidence. Next you get to design your own stained glass cartoon (template), so your creation will be completely unique. In two days you'll have time to make either a suncatcher or a panel containing up to ten pieces of glass- it takes longer than you think! Then choose from our wide range of coloured glass & cut it to size and shape before learning the “Tiffany” technique of applying copper foil. This is really relaxing when you get the hang of it. You'll then solder your panel together. You can choose whether to leave the solder its natural silvery colour or use a patina to make it coppery again or black. What will I take home with me? You will make either a suncatcher or a decorative panel up to A4 in size, with up to ten pieces. The shape is entirely up to you. People with previous experience can make a more complex panel or something with more pieces. Past students have made some beautiful swans; landscapes and sunsets are always popular too. Can I bring my children? Sorry, but the lead in the solder means that this course isn't suitable for under 18s (or pregnant ladies either). Do have a look at our glass applique / stained glass mosaic courses or our glass fusing courses instead, as these are lead free. Thanks.

Maker


I'd been working with glass for over 30 years before starting to teach glass art in 2014. I've exhibited with the Contemporary Glass Society and at the International Festival of Glass as well as taking part in masterclasses in glass fusing and glass casting. There are few things I love more than sharing my passion for glass art with other people, whether complete beginners or people with years of experience under their belts. Come, try a course and see if you love it as much as I do! If you'd like to book more places than are shown on the site, please get in touch. Not all availability is shown on here, as I also take bookings through my own website. So there might be room for a larger group. Mattt
