This course is designed for complete beginners but can also be adapted for those who already have some experience in this field.
Made famous by Tiffany with their lampshades, the copper foil technique is particularly suited to smaller, more detailed work (eg. suncatchers) or 3D pieces. During the morning we cover the basics of how to cut and shape glass, how to apply and work with copper foil and solder, and how to design patterns for stained glass.
After learning the basics we go on to design and then create unique individual stained glass panels to take home at the end of the day.
Lunch and refreshments are provided on all courses, as are all materials and equipment. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies. Please wear closed toe shoes for safety reasons.
Unfortunately pregnant women are advised against working with stained glass as the lead can harm a developing foetus.
Whilst we strive to be totally inclusive, the Stonefield Glass studio is attached to our family home and we are unable to accommodate some wheelchairs. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
Please note that courses will only run with a minimum of two participants. If your booking is the only one for a date then I will contact you to arrange a date change or a full refund.
