Introduction to stained glass workshop



This is a beginners introductory workshop.

During the 5 hour workshop you will learn the basics of the stained glass copper foiling technique. This technique has become popular for hobbyist and artisans as it allows more intricate and detailed designs, perfect for small panels, sun catchers and lampshades.

Pieces of glass are cut and ground into shape, each piece is then wrapped with copper foil tape, placed into its final design and soldered together, its then given a good clean and finished off with either patina and polished.
You will get make a sun catcher or small panel (A5 size) of your own design or I can help you design one on the day, I suggest designs are kept simple with no more than 8-10 pieces to allow them to be finished on time.
The day will start with a demonstration that shows you each step of the process and how to use the tools safely, you will then make a start on your own panel.

This is a group workshop, there will be maximum 4 attendees.
