Summer Glass Workshops new dates

Creative glass workshops in July

I am about to run a Stained glass weekend for beginners this weekend 1st and 2nd June, and have set dates for the next workshops in July.

Whilst preparing and choosing glass for people to use, I found myself staring at the glass. I do not seem to tire of how beautiful and uplifting it’s colour and light transmitting properties are.

Here are a few pictures, although it is hard to really show the true splendor of glass through a photograph. Well I find it hard, with a smart phone!

For information on the next Stained glass weekend workshop and Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop follow the links. Why not try your hand creating with glass.

 

It’s a wrap! 2018

On this, the shortest dark day, I am calling ‘time’ on a beautiful colourful Stained Glass 2018.

I’m looking forward to 2019 with more amazing stained glass panels being made, and a new daytime class too, and of course the longer lighter days.

In the meantime, I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Peaceful festive season, with maybe one to many mince pies! I do love mince pies.

There are still a few spaces available on the Introduction to Copper Foiling and the Monday evening class, if anyone wants to join, please do pop me an email and it can be organised by the New Year.

Here are the last few finished stained glass panels of 2018 (not polished or fitted yet) brightening up the day.

Fancy trying Copper Foiling – Saturday 1st December

A place has become available on the Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop on Saturday 1st December.

In one day you can learn the copper foiling skills to make your own glass sun-catcher to take home, using a lovely selection of colourful glass and template ideas to get creative with. You will learn how to cut glass to a template, use copper foil tape and how to solder your glass creation together.

Here are a few examples of what people have created on the day.

New Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop

I decided to create a one day workshop for those who wanted to try their hands at Copper-foiling.

The Copper foiling technique, developed in the Tiffany Studios in the1890s, is ideal for decorative panels, sun catchers and mirrors as well as lampshades and other dimensional work. Copper tape and solder are used to create a seam joining the pieces of glass.

As a technique, it can be fun, relaxing and potentially easier to take up as a hobby from home, garage or the garden shed. Continue reading “New Introduction to Copper Foiling workshop”
