Copper-foiling is used as an alternative to lead came, giving a similar effect often for more delicate and detailed indoor projects such as mirror surrounds, wall hangings, smaller panels and light catchers of any shape.
In this course you will learn to cut and grind glass in to accurate shapes, before choosing your glass from our large and varied range of glass colours. You will be taught the art of copper-foiling and soldering in joining the glass together to create gifts and projects for the home. This is a popular course because once the skill is learnt, you can easily continue this hobby at home without too much costly material, equipment and mess! The course is led by our lovely resident tutor and stained glass specialist Steph Brown.

I had a wonderful day with Steph at The Cheshire school of Glass. This course was excellent and Steph is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and patient. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. The studio has a lovely barn conversion warmth about it, which was a pleasure to work in.
Steph is a lovely teacher. I really enjoyed being taught by her. She is really skilled and great at explaining the process . I came away with a beautiful copperfoiled panel that I am really pleased with. This course was fantastic. I will come back and do another in the New year!
