Description

We have a number of Courses working with glass.  Our STAINED GLASS LEADED PANEL course will introduce you to the basics of stained glass, cutting glass, stretching lead, soldering and cementing. Please see the booking Page for the Course Programme.

Our STAINED GLASS COPPER FOIL – HOME AND GARDEN Course will introduce you to the world of creating garden ornaments and window decorations to hang and enhance your garden or living space. This technique is used to create the famous Tiffany Lamps or 3 dimensional pieces with copper foil wrapped around the edge of the glass before the pieces are soldered together.  If you would like to create some gifts for Christmas or tree decorations then you need to select STAINED GLASS COPPER FOIL – CHRISTMAS on our booking page.

STAINED GLASS APPLIQUE/MOSAICS is a method of creating a stunning piece by gluing small pieces of glass onto a large pane of glass to create a picture similar to the technique used to mosaic.  The end results can be truly amazing and will enhance any window or garden area. Please see the booking page for the course programme.
