Everyone loves stained glass and the beautiful colours as the light streams through it. Well imagine being able to make your own decorations to display at Christmas. This one day copper foil stained glass class will introduce you to the art of making stained glass with the copper foil method.
During this one day workshop you will be provided with ready cut and ground glass – one cut to create a dove and one an angel. You will foil and solder them, and finish them off with a ribbon to be used for hanging in the window or on the tree – or anywhere else!
***Lead-based solder will be used – this creates toxic fumes and pregnant women are advised not to handle lead or breathe in fumes.***
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO ILL HEALTH, TERI LOCKTON IS UNABLE TO TEACH THIS WORKSHOP. HOWEVER, WE HAVE A SUBSTITUTE GLASS ARTIST, DAVID TEECE, WHO IS ABLE TO STEP IN AND GUIDE YOU THROUGH THIS GREAT DAY.
What to expect
Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.
Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.
Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.
We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!
