Stained Glass Projects - Day 1 and 2

I run 2 one-day courses which together cover the basic techniques you need to create your own stained glass.

DAY 1 PROJECTS - mirror, mobile, hanging, suncatcher

DAY 0NE - The Basics

Part 1:- general practice using household glass

  • Scoring (cutting) the glass
  • Breaking the glass
  • Cutting straight-edge shapes (squares, rectangles, triangles)

 

 

Part 2:- starting your own stained glass project

  • Creating your design
  • Making the pattern for each glass piece
  • Copper foiling each piece
  • Soldering the glass pieces together
  • Cleaning, patina and waxing your completed work
DAY 2 PROJECTS - picture frame, light catcher, garden stake, tealight holder

DAY 2 -  Basics continued 

You'll be practicing the same techniques as the first session, but this time you’ll be focusing on creating a stained glass panel with curved pieces.

 

 

 

 

This will include the following:-

  • Cutting S-shaped curves
  • Cutting circles, ovals and outside curves
  • Cutting inside curves – the most difficult cut!!

Wonderful introduction; Anna was organised and had planned the day thoughtfully so that we made a lovely mosaic piece to bring home. A new hobby. Thank you.
