Copper foiling and 3D work
One and two day workshops
Choosing from a wide selection of coloured and textured glass, you will use traditional techniques, sometimes known as 'Tiffany' to make lightcatchers and items in 3D.
Copperfoiling is very versatile, make abstract light catchers, angels, stars, birds and candle stands, boxes....there really is so much choice.....experiment!
You will learn how to cut glass, attach copperfoil, solder and add loops for hanging. On one or two day courses you will be working from templates provided for you but these can be adapted and you are welcome to bring ideas but please keep it simple! You are welcome to bring ribbon or chain for hanging items.
The day involves more soldering than on a leaded course and might not be suitable if you are prone to asthma or breathing difficulties. If you need more information or are not sure, please ask me.
All classes run from 10.30am - 4.30pm with a well deserved break for your packed lunch. Unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits are on offer throughout the day too!
