Leader: Sue Jones of Lymelight Glass Studio
Duration: 10am to 3.30pm
Venue: Coastal Craft Collective, 10 Marine Place, Seaton, Devon, EX12 2QL
At this workshop Sue will teach you to use the Tiffany copper foiling method to make a lovely stained glass and sea glass mobile. It's a really great way to use some of your (or our) precious beach finds and make them into something special for you to keep.
You will learn to cut scraps of glass into shapes that you would like in your mobile and you will solder each individual piece of glass and sea glass so that they can be strung together and hung from a piece of driftwood into a mobile.
All materials will be provided but if you have any sea glass, pottery or shells that you would like to use bring them along and you can use them if they are suitable.
This workshop requires strength and dexterity in your hands.
Suitable for age 16+
The solder used in stained glass contains lead. If you are pregnant you may want to check with your Doctor before booking this course
Sue is happy to run her classes with 2 or more people. If we only get one booking, we'll cancel the session. We will offer the person who has booked a place on an alternative day or a full refund, whichever they prefer.
"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.
