About the Course
Join a one day stained glass mirror workshop with Jackie Hunt at ArtisOn.
This is a one day taste of what it’s like to work in leaded stained glass. If you’ve always fancied having a go but want to dip your toe in on a smaller project before tackling a two day workshop, this is your chance! It’s quite an intensive day to make the a leaded stained glass mirror. There will be an option to simplify further to make a simple light catcher too.
During this one day session with glass artist Jackie Hunt, you will create a leaded stained glass mirror. The design will be prescribed though there will be a choice of colours. You will use some pre-cut glass and some that you’ll have a go at cutting yourself. The mirror will be leaded and surrounded by a leaded coloured glass frame consisting of a relatively small number of pieces so that it can be completed in a day. You will construct and solder the piece.
– Learn how a stained glass design is planned.
– Have a go at cutting glass safely.
– Work through the process of assembling and soldering your panel.
– Apply techniques for finishing a glass panel.
