In this one day workshop you will have fun selecting from a huge variety of vibrant coloured glass scraps to make a colourful sun catcher. You will learn basic glass cutting, copper foiling and soldering techniques, and a bit about designing for stained glass or be spontaneous with your pattern, and make it up as you arrange your glass pieces.

The fun of this course is in playing with and arranging scraps and it is possible to make up a sun catcher without cutting any glass at all and therefore enables learners with weak hands to still enjoy working with glass. (Copper foiling is a way of assembling differently coloured glass pieces used in the making tiffany lampshades.)

You will end the day with a vibrant piece of glass sized 15 x 15cm approx to hang or place in your window, and be uplifted by the wonderful coloured light it harnesses. Course aims & objectives Learn how to make patterns for a small stained glass panel Learn and develop basic glass cutting techniqueas.
