Stained Glass For Beginners - two day course
Tutor: Naomi Brangwyn, glass artist
Using the Tiffany (copper foiling) technique of stained glass, you'll be introduced to the basic skills of cutting and grinding glass, foiling, soldering and finishing. We will start with a small warm-up project, quickly followed by a hanging glass panel - approximately A4 size.
The course will be suitable for beginners and improvers as everyone will work on their individual projects. There will be a range of designs available to choose from, but help will be there for you to design your own simple panel. If anyone already has a design, they would be encouraged to email an image of their idea in advance of the course to ensure suitability of design and suitable available materials.
NB: When this course is full, please ask to go on the reserve list by ringing Anne on 01787 229955 or email via the contact form above.
