This is a one day workshop for beginners. You will learn to cut glass safely and competently, grind glass, copper-foil, solder and finish your project to take home. By the end of the day you will have created a beautiful stained glass light catcher (see images) to hang in a bright window. There are patterns for you to choose from in the studio and you will get plenty of help and support throughout the day in a small group of 4 or 5 students.
Please visit my website for details of dates available throughout the year.
What's included in the price?
All tools and materials are included in the cost of the day as well as a light lunch,snacks and hot drinks.
Arrived at Caryl's workshop with no experience of stained glass, and came away with a wonderful piece of glass art.
Thanks to Caryl's patience and knowledge of what she is doing, she gave me the confidence to achieve things which i couldn't imagine.
All in all a great day, with plenty of one on one time, which was what i needed.
Also the lunch was a real bonus, and my partner enjoyed the cake too.
Many thanks to Caryl
What a brilliant day! This was such an enjoyable course, and covered everything you need to know to get started working with stained glass. Caryl is a great tutor, very helpful, very patient, with lots of great suggestions and solutions. We all ended up with amazing pieces of stained glass artwork that we managed to create in a day. Will definitely be booking another course with Caryl.
Can't recommend this course enough if you are interested in trying glass. Caryl is very patient and shows you how to cut and grind the glass safely before you start. She has lots of great designs to choose from and an amazing selection of glass for you to work with. My light catcher has pride of place in my window. Already booked myself on the lead panel class to further my knowledge. The lunch provided was lovely too.
I spent a very rewarding time at Caryl's light catcher workshop on a grey February day. It was immensely rewarding and delightful to take home a piece of art, predominantly made by me!
Caryl is a patient teacher and as she kept the attendance at the workshop small, she can provide quality support. A tasty lunch was an added bonus.
I attended the class not knowing anything and came home with a light catcher I am immensely proud of! Caryl is a very good teacher and is patient and helpful and I now feel that I am able to have a go myself at home. My family are amazed at what I've achieved and I think I will be making a few presents for people when Christmas comes! I can't recommend Caryl enough if you are thinking of having a go, the place is very easy to get to and with a light lunch thrown in it's a totally enjoyable day!
Have booked myself and a friend on another of these fab courses. We had a wonderful day - Caryl was so patient and gave us all the help we needed to make some beautiful (even though I say so myself!!) glass decorations. I never considered myself to be creative but it's given me the crafty bug for sure - can't wait for the next one!
Fantastic workshop and Caryl is a really great teacher. I went in not knowing a thing about how to make stained glass and came out with my very own takeaway piece which I cut, copper foiled and soldered myself. Caryl provided plenty of help, attention and expertise when needed and I really enjoyed the process of making the stained glass piece. Couldn't recommend this course enough!
