Make a slim stained-glass panel which can be displayed in the garden. The panel is framed in zinc and steel. This type of frame is rigid enough to support the panel being placed into the garden border. During the day you will work on a project chosen from a selection of prepared designs. You will learn how to cut coloured glass using a design template. The glass pieces are then assembled with lead and a zinc framework. The panel will be soldered and cemented to finish and the final clean is done the next day at home. There will be demonstrations of each technique and individual guidance. The tutor will provide all the materials and equipment needed for the course. Material costs aren’t covered in the course fee, they will be payable to the tutor at the end of the day. Material costs for a garden panel are £35 per person.
What to bring:
Apron and rubber gloves for cementing
Please do not wear open toe shoes/sandals
