On this weekend workshop (1.5 days of hard and fun work) you will learn the bacis of glass painting applied to assembling a small panel using 0the copper foil technique.


Note that, if you are a complete beginner, we'll be working with pre-cut shapes and pre-designed images. 


This workshop will give you an idea of the whole process involved on the making of a piece of traditional stained glass with painted elements. 


On the first day we'll go through the basis of cutting glass and we'll introduce you to the ancient art of glass painting. At the end of the class, all our painting samples will be fired to be ready for next day.


The second day we'll learn how to foil the fired pieces and how to solder them to complete our very unique painted stained glass suncatcher. 


Saturday: 10am-4pm

Sunday: 10am-1pm


Photos attached are an illustration of the technique.


As we'll work with lead, this course is not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
