Copper Foil Glass Workshops

This creative workshop will introduce you to the craft of copper foiling (Tiffany Style). You will be given step by step guidance to create your own unique, hand cut suncatcher to enjoy for years to come.

Half day classes run for 4½ hours. In these taster workshops, you will create a suncatcher using up to 10 pieces of glass to ensure that your project is completed in the time frame.

You will learn how to design and structure your piece. I will give you a choice of templates and design ideas. You will cut glass, use a diamond grinder, apply and burnish copper foil, assemble and solder your pieces together including making and adding hooks if you want to hang your finished piece. I will guide you through the lovely process of copper foiling and you will create your own glass art.

I will provide all the tools and equipment, including gloves, aprons and safety goggles. I have a wide selection of lovely coloured and textured glass for you to choose from. Beginners and those with some experience are all very welcome.

Skills required: You need to have good hand dexterity and reasonable hand strength. You also need good eyesight.
