Tiffany Style Stained Glass Workshopsstained glass 4

Dates – 19th March, 28th May and 25th September   Time- 10am – 4pm

An inspiring workshop learning how to cut, foil and solder glass into a beautiful art pieces, all materials and refreshments included

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 from the many templates available. You 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. You will be shown how to foil the pieces of glass.  After a break for lunch we will carry on and learn how 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.

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 6.

Health and safety notice – No sandals, flip flops or opened toed shoes to be worn.
