Stained Glass Workshop

This is a beginners introductory workshop.

During the 5 hour workshop you will learn the basics of the stained glass copper foiling technique. This technique has become popular for hobbyist and artisans as it allows more intricate and detailed designs, perfect for small panels, sun catchers and lampshades.

Pieces of glass are hand cut and ground into shape, each piece is then wrapped with copper foil tape, placed into its final design and soldered together, it is then given a good clean and finished off with patina and polished.

You will get make a sun catcher or small panel (A5 size) of your own design or I can help you design one on the day, I suggest designs are kept simple with no more than 8-10 pieces to allow them to be finished on time, I will also have plenty of patterns to choose from.

The day will start with a demonstration that shows you each step of the process and how to use the tools safely, you will have a test piece of glass you can practice on so you can get used to the tools, you will then make a start on your own panel with lots of help and advice along the way.

I like to keep tuition days as relaxed and fun as possible with the attendees taking the lead so they really get the most out of it, it can be quite fiddly so please bare in mind you will need to be agile with your hands (again I will be there to help if you struggle) and we will be stood at the workbench for prolonged periods of time.

All materials and tools are provided and included in the cost so all you need to bring is ideas, some snacks/ lunch and enthusiasm.

Session time is 10am-3.30pm including a half hour lunch break

The studio is upstairs in a shared building so unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible.
