The ancient art of stained glass will be taught to you during this one-day workshop. Maxine will show you how to design, build, and assemble either:
- Leaded Garden Panel (Includes steel frame to plant it in the garden (approx 10 cm x 60 cm, choices of frame available)
- Copper Foil Taster Day – Design and create small stained glass items in copper foil (your design or one of mine)
- Leaded Suncatcher Panel (20 cm by 30 cm) – your design or one of my selection of designs
- Festive and other occasion decorations – Angels, Christmas Trees and Holly or other decorations for seasonal events
The cost of the course includes everything needed to make your panel and all the safety equipment needed. Throughout the day, there will be plenty of one-on-one tuition. Classes can hold up to four people.
During the course, you will complete all the steps required, including glass cutting, copper foiling or leading, soldering, and cementing using either one of your designs or mine.
The purpose-built studio is located in North Dorset. The studio also has a dedicated cloakroom. Please bring a lunch packed, if needed this can be placed in a fridge (especially in summer). Lunch may be eaten in the garden during the summer or inside at other times.
Please wear old clothes and comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes, please). This course is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women due to the lead and solder. The studio has adjustable chairs, but some of the time will necessitate standing.
