Copper foil workshop

I was delighted that one of my visitors to Art Weeks decided to make a glass piece using the copper foil method (Tiffany style). She took to glass cutting really well and learned the different techniques required through the day.

First Ann had to design her piece and draw it out full size. She then cut the glass, used the grinder to trim the edges and corners and gave the pieces a good wash.

Then Ann wrapped the edges of the glass pieces with copper foil. Then she soldered the pieces together and was thoroughly delighted with the result. She used nuggets and flat glass, some textured, some patterned glass. Here’s her result.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
