Glass appliqué experience day for the new year – postponed due to lockdown
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO LOCKDOWN. Have a look on our “bookings” page for other dates. Thanks.
Join us for a glass appliqué experience day on Monday 4th January. It’s perfect for both beginners and improvers in glass art and is a very environmentally friendy craft, as it uses the pieces of glass left over from making stained glass panels. (That’s also why it’s our least expensive course!) Come and make something beautiful whilst doing your bit for the planet. Accurate glass cutting isn’t needed, so it’s pretty easy too!
Glass appliqué is also known as stained glass mosaic. The difference between this and regular mosaic is that you work with coloured glass on a background of clear glass, which lets the light shine through. The pieces of glass don’t need to fit accurately together, so it’s great for beginners and people with weak hands. If you’re a seasoned stained glass artist on the other hand, you’ll find it a brilliant way to use up your small offcuts of coloured glass. Here’s an example by Catherine Van der Woerd in the USA- not made here, but still very pretty!
We supply virtually everything that you need. Just bring yourself, perhaps a friend, some closed-in shoes, your glasses (if you need them) and a smile!
Whether it’s your first time cutting glass or whether you’ve cupboards full of art glass waiting for a new use, come and join us. In a day, you can expect to make a panel of around A5 size. All materials, refreshments and lunch are included, plus free parking.
What better way to start the year than on a glass appliqué experience day!
