COPPER FOIL STAINED GLASS COURSE , Saturday 18th May 9.30am to 4pm
This is an exciting, practical, hands-on course for BEGINNERS but I also welcome improvers who might appreciate the opportunity to expand their knowledge and develop their technique and creative ideas within a small group. It will be an intensive class and may run over a little depending on progress, but I can guarantee you will have a great experience as well as lots of fun. My new studio is a wonderful space, relaxing and supporting with plenty of room for lots of creativity.
This class uses the Tiffany Style or Copper Foil method of glass making, it refers to the style of Louis Comfort Tiffany where each piece of glass is wrapped in copper foil before being soldered together. This method is generally used for making gifts and small items but it is also used in combination with traditional lead windows as there is much more scope for detail. It is traditionally used for fine delicate objects including lampshades, clocks, mirrors, boxes, terrariums etc. By the end of the day you will have created a beautiful stained glass mirror/picture frame/light catcher.
The course venue is The Studio, Quinta do Cobral, Lagares da Beira. The course will start at 9.30am prompt and finish at approximately 4pm, course fee €100 per person to include all glass and materials, tuition, course notes refreshments and a fabulous vegetarian bring-and-share lunch (you can book lunch for an additional €5 if you dont want to bring anything)
