Event Information

Design and make your own copper foiled stained glass pieces on this course for students with some previous experience.

What will you learn on this course?

On this course you will have the opportunity to design and realize your own copper foiled stained glass projects. The tutor will support you to translate your ideas into stained glass designs and offer advice and guidance on appropriate techniques. You should have existing skills including glass cutting, grinding, foiling, taping, soldering and finishing. It is expected that you will also know how to safely use the specialist equipment and materials that are involved in the stained glass making process such as glass cutters, grinders, soldering irons, flux, patina and lead.

This course encourages students to work on independent projects, developing existing skills and refining your technique to create more complex and sophisticated work.
