On this half day taster workshop you will make a small stained glass sun catcher for your home. Whether you have had a go at stained glass in the past or not you can come and learn all the techniques for making copper foiled stained glass. They include
  • cutting glass
  • grinding the edges smooth
  • copper foiling
  • soldering
You'll practice first on some plain glass and then get to choose from a range of beautiful coloured textured glass to finish your piece.

There will be a selection of templates for you to choose from including angels, robins, boats, hearts and stars as well as others, templates are regularly updated. Some of the pictures show what people have made on previous workshops. 

A great way to try something new and make a lasting decoration for your home.

This workshop requires strength and dexterity in your hands.

"I'm Sue and I live in Lyme Regis. I was always fascinated by stained glass and so I did a couple of taster courses in Bristol a few years ago followed by a Night School course at Strode College in Street. I then bought a starter kit and started making stained glass from home gradually improving my technique. I most enjoy using the "Tiffany" copper foil method of making stained glass as this allows you to make pieces of all shapes and sizes and doesn't take up too much space! I love every single piece that I make and each piece is unique. 

If you'd prefer to buy stained glass decorations, we have a lovely selection available in our shop and on our website. They include Sue's work as well as that of the Devon Glass Studio and Kwerky Krafts.
