Description

Using the traditional method of combining coloured glass with lead, this one day workshop will enable you to create one colourful stained glass spectrum stick which can be hung in your garden.

Traditionally, stained glass windows were associated with cathedrals, churches and country houses, but these days stained glass is also used for decoration and bringing light and colour into the home as well as the garden.

PLEASE NOTE:– Glass cutting requires a certain amount of strength and mobility in the wrist. Soldering irons will be shared during the course. Lead and lead solder will be used – these are toxic substances both to handle and to breathe in the solder fumes.  This course is NOT therefore suitable for pregnant women.  Glass colours with be similar to those shown, subject to availability.

Suitable for beginners and those with experience.
