Stained Glass Beginners Course
This is a relaxed, fun 2 day course designed to teach you all the basic skills and techniques to make your very own stained glass piece of art.
In this course you will be learning the “Copper Foil Technique”, widely attributed to the workshops of LC Tiffany. This was developed around 1880 to accommodate tiny pieces of glass and the curves of Art Nouveau shades like those designed by Tiffany.
Over the 2 days we will cover;
Stained Glass Design principles and designing your own template
Choosing glass and colours
Scoring and breaking glass in straight lines and curves
Cutting glass to templates, sanding and grinding glass
Copper foiling – wrapping, crimping and burnishing
Soldering – Tacking, Tinning and Beading
Finishing and Polishing
At the end of the course you will take home your very own piece of stained glass art for you and others to admire!
