Stained Glass with Jen McEwan

X

Description

The copper foil method, also called the Tiffany Method, of stained glass construction involves wrapping the edges of each piece in your project with a copper foil tape. The pieces are then joined by soldering them together on both front and back which creates a metal framework that holds the glass pieces together.

This one day course aims to equip you with the skills, tools and glass to create between 1 and 2 stained glass sun catchers, using the copper foil technique.

We start the workshop with a description of the basic tools used to score and cut glass and a short demonstration on how to break glass safely. You will then be given the opportunity to practice your cutting skills on some standard ‘float’ glass.

Once you feel comfortable you will choose a design to make and will cut and prepare some pieces of coloured art glass, ready to build into your first design. You will then learn how to grind the edges of each piece of your glass ready for foiling.

After a break for lunch we will carry on and learn how to foil our edges and then to solder all our pieces of glass together. If there is time a second sun catcher can be made. And all pieces made will be yours to take home and keep.

I had a really great day, thank you. Very pleased with my end products. The techniques were well explained and we were fully equipped to make the glass items. Lovely place to be, with nice refreshments throughout the day, and I bought lunch in the cafe next door. Highly recommend this course.
