What you'll do

Join us at our home studio in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales.
Using the copper foil method of stained glass (sometimes called the Tiffany method) you will create a beautiful and unique glass panel.
We'll start the day with tea or coffee and an informal chat while taking a quick look around the studio.
Next comes the H&S talk, tool familiarisation and instruction for the day ahead.
You will learn how to score and break glass and will spend a short time practicing your new found glass cutting skills before moving on to the design stage.
We will then look at patterns and templates which can be worked from, or tweaked to a design which you are happy with.
Once you have your design you can spend some time choosing your glass from a large selection, before beginning the practical process of cutting, grinding and foiling the glass to fit your design.
Finally, you will solder your panel together, adding hanging rings and patinas if required, before cleaning your piece off ready to take home.
Somewhere in between all this we will break for lunch :)
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners. Each step and technique will be demonstrated by the tutor and support is offered throughout.
Use of tools and all materials are included in the price.
Closed shoes are a must! No sandals or open toe shoes please.
Aprons are supplied but you are advised to wear old clothes

I have worked with stained glass for over 20 years, creating and selling beautiful bespoke pieces and taking on private & public commissions throughout the area.
For the last 5 years I have been running workshops and love sharing my passion and enthusiasm for stained glass with others.
If you love the challenge of taking on and learning a new skill this is a great craft, and at the end of the day.... you get take away a beautiful piece of work made with your own hands
