Glass appliqué / stained glass mosaic weekend workshop

Why not join us for a glass appliqué / stained glass mosaic weekend workshop. 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 two day 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 another name for 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 weekend, you can expect to make a panel of around A4 size in a relaxed and friendly group of no more than 6 people.  All materials, refreshments and lunches are included, plus free parking.

What better way to spend a weekend than on a stained glass mosaic weekend workshop!
