In a copper foiled stained glass class Kent student solders her first stained glass window panel

Copper foiled stained glass for beginners and improvers

If you’ve not cut glass before, we’ll start with getting you confident with a variety of cuts in float (window) glass before guiding you in the development of your own design. You’ll be able to make a panel of around twelve pieces, up to A4 in size, or an irregular shaped suncatcher to hang in a window; the choice is yours. If you’ve already got some experience in glass art, you’ll be able to try something more advanced, with more pieces, or perhaps overlays or inclusion of other materials such as shells, beads, agate etc. (Please bring these with you; things that will sit flat & not melt tend to work best; we’ll happily advise in advance.) 3D items are also possible, such as candle holders and trinket boxes. All glass, copper foil, solder etc. will be provided, as will tools, refreshments and lunches both days.
