Course description

Stained Glass

Stained Glass [HDF3248G]: Overview

During this course you will acquire skills which will enable you to make an attractive stained glass panel. Other techniques such as glass painting and fusing will also be covered.

What will we cover?

Using traditional methods, you will be encouraged to design a panel, select glass and cut it accurately, lead up, solder, cement and polish individual panels. Techniques such as glass painting and copper foiling are also taught. You will be introduced to glass fusing to create small items such as coasters, plates and jewellery. Beginners will make a small leaded panel while returning learners will be able to continue larger projects and develop their skills in this interesting and rewarding craft. The classes also collaborate on group projects and you will be encouraged to participate in order to broaden your skills. You must wear suitable closed toe footwear.
