Beginners Stained Glass Term 3 (Copper Foil Work) - 2017-18

This course can be enrolled online or at Hive from 2nd August 2017 from 10am.

Students will initially learn stained glass making from scratch, from cutting glass through to a complete copper foil panel within a period of ten hours. Skills will be developed in safely cutting & grinding glass. Students will be encouraged to create their own designs based around the constraints of the glass medium & produce cartoons & working drawings based on their designs of no more than 10 to 15 glass pieces. Students will be given instruction in the safe use of tools needed in the stained glass process & particularly in the application of soldering. Completion of leaded panels will enable students to use leading cements, patinas & polishes.

Students must be aware that there is a materials cost to be paid to tutor on the first day of the course of £25

Wear sensible footwear (not open toed sandals). Bring note pad, ruler & coloured pencils.
