Dispell any winter blues by creating pretty light-catching glass pieces.
Have fun selecting from a huge variety of vibrant coloured glass to make a colourful suncatcher. Learn basic glass cutting, copperfoiling* and soldering techniques, and a bit about designing for stained glass. Or be spontaneous with your pattern and make it up as you arrange your glass pieces.
There is plenty of fun to be had playing with and arranging scraps of glass without cutting any glass at all! This makes is suitable for learners at different levels of ability to still enjoy working with glass.
*Copperfoiling is a way of assembling differently coloured glass pieces, a technique used in the making tiffany lampshades.
You will end the day with a vibrant piece of glass to hang or place in your window, and be uplifted by the wonderful coloured light it harnesses. Approx. size 15×15 cm
Use of tools and all materials are included in the cost. Suitable for all levels of participant.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided but please bring a packed lunch.
