Whole Day Stained Glass Workshop

Cost: £85 per person

eVouchers are available for this course

Plan of the day

In this whole day workshop you will be able to make a stained glass suncatcher using up to 8 pieces of glass.

The process is as follows:

  • We will discuss safe handling of the glass and I will teach you how to score and break the glass to make the shapes you need for your design
  • Design your suncatcher, choosing opaque (solid) or transparent (see-through) glass. Some textured glass is also available.
  • Draw your pattern out at full size (in the business it’s called a ‘cartoon’)
  • Draw your shapes onto your chosen glass
  • Score and break the glass
  • Grind the edges of each piece to ensure a good fit
  • Wrap all edges with copper foil
  • Use solder to join all the pieces together
  • Wash the glass and polish the soldered edges

The simpler design the better, and straight lines are easier to cut and fit together than curved ones. Soldering is most challenging part of the process so I will provide you with a practice piece to work on alongside your work of art.

You take the finished piece away with you

Notes

Please bring your lunch with you, this will be eaten away from the studio, within the house or garden (weather permitting). I will supply drinks but feel free to bring your own if you wish.

Please note that open-toed shoes are not permitted in the studio as glass shards have a nasty habit of finding their way into your sandals.

This workshop is unsuitable for pregnant or breast feeding women

Testimonial

PW: Thank you for an amazing and very full day. We absolutely loved making our stained glass pieces and felt proud of our achievements. This was all down to your teaching, guidance, support and encouragement.  My daughter-in-laws thoroughly enjoy themselves and felt it was the best birthday presents ever! We will definitely be back.
