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!!

What a splendid way to spend our wedding anniversary. Anna was very welcoming from the moment we arrived & wasn't rushed throughout whole day. Highly recommend.

Anna is the most positive teacher you could wish to have and before we had even finished the course on Saturday we had booked up to attend a mosaic course!
