This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those more experienced who need a refreshing on their cutting, designing or foiling skills.
We will start from the very beginning: learning how to cut glass (and how to grind it, if necessary). Depending on your skill level you'll achieve a simple or more intricate sun catcher!
We'll go through the whole process of copper foiled stained glass making, including:
-Designing for stained glass
-Templates and cartooning
-How to cut & shape glass
-Applying the copper foil
-Soldering and hanging
At the end of the workshop you will take home a lovely stained glas sun catcher.
All tools, materials and consumables included.
What to bring : Please wear comfortable clothing in layers. The process can get mucky, so please bring a smock or work apron! Closed-toed shoes are required, and socks are advised. Bring a pencil, pen and paper for notes -- and a pack lunch!
PLEASE NOTE: We will be dealing with tin/lead solder in this class -- therefore the class is not appropriate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
