Description

Make Tiffany style coloured Glass Christmas decorations with Lizzie Hippisley-Cox of Eden Stained Glass .... " Christmas Crackers"

Join Lizzie for a fun and festive day of mince pies, fresh coffee and discover the art of creating copper foil Stained Glass 'Christmas Crackers' each around 10cm long, to hang on your tree, fireplace or festive window this year. Or for a unique handmade Christmas gift for someone special! You should be able to make around 3 or 4 over the day, depending on how quickly you can work.

Lizzie will arrive with many carefully prepared templates and various colours of stained glass. Following her live streamed demonstrations projected onto a screen, you will start with cutting your chosen glass and then prepare each piece with copper foil edging. his ensures people stay well distanced and safe whilst watching instructions /demos from the safety of their desks.

Next, you will move on to burnishing/preparing the glass, before each piece is edged with copper foil - just like the Tiffany Glass of the early C20th. After this comes the assembly stage which brings your pieces together by spot soldering, with a professional FFP3 mask (supplied in the materials package) before applying a final solder over the entire piece to ensure its integrity and bringing together the whole assembled piece, including an integral loop for hanging on your tree.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
