About the Course
On this practical workshop you will make your own panel of leaded stained glass to take home and display. We offer a choice of patterns and a large selection of gorgeous coloured and textured glass to choose from. If you'd prefer to do a 1-day course, please get in touch.
Workshops - I offer three different types of stained glass workshop:
Tiffany Style/Copper Foil method
This refers to stained glass work in the style of Louis Comfort Tiffany where each piece of glass is wrapped in copper foil before being soldered together. This method is generally used for making gifts and smaller pieces such as sun-catchers.
Stained glass mosaics
This is the process of creating a design or pattern using small pieces of stained glass adhered to either a mirror, glass sheet, vase or wooden shape.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

We attended a fabulous stained glass terrarium workshop with Gigha in her studio in Bideford. Gigha is a great teacher - professional, informative but most of all friendly and fun. Our confidence grew by the hour and we all came away with wonderful terrariums and big smiles on our faces. Thank you so much Gigha - we'll be back! xx

I have done three courses with Gigha, a 2 day garden panels workshop, a one day bunting & a one day lead panels workshop. I can't get enough! Highly recommended. Gigha's workshops are informative and good fun. You leave with new skills and your creation/s have had a day where everything else in your life is temporarily forgotten while you are engrossed in putting your new skills into action.

I have been on two of Gigha's courses and both were excellent. Gigha gives you confidence to try everything in a quiet supportive way. Hopefully I will try some of her other courses in the near future.

Thanks to Gigha for the help and encouragement on her leaded light window course. There was a lot to fit into the day and luckily we could overrun on time as some of us took longer than others, but you stayed calm and tried to help as much as possible.
We were also very well looked after by your helper who cheerfully provided us with refreshments throughout the day and was very encouraging too!
A very enjoyable day!

I have now been on two of Gigha's courses - one for Tiffany glass making Christmas decorations and the other for stained glass lead panels. Both days were brilliant, I learnt new skills on each day, found it to be a challenge but enjoyable. Gigha's instruction is excellent - she's very experienced with stained glass and has a really nice way of teaching people. The lunch is good too and the location is beautiful. Thanks Gigha, I will hopefully be back!
