Stained Glass Introductory Workshop

About the Course
Have you ever wondered how a stained glass panel is made? Have you ever wanted to try it yourself?
Come and join us for a fun, whole-day workshop to learn the secrets of either Tiffany's copper-foil technique or centuries-old leaded stained glass panel making.
By the end of the day, you'll be the proud owner of a suncatcher made to a pattern of your choice and will know all the basics of this wonderful craft.
We'll take you through:
* How to safely cut and break glass to almost any shape
* How to grind the glass edges smooth
* The use of copper foil OR lead came - two completely different techniques which we teach in separate Workshops
* How to solder your project together perfectly
* Finishing techniques
You'll learn a lot of tips and wrinkles through the day and also details of where the best suppliers are, what to order and what you really don't need!
