Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No formal entry requirements. All levels welcome. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course students will have learned: - the art of cutting glass; - choice of subject and design; - moving the drawing into cardboard templates; - cutting the different pieces of glass; - lead and copper foil; - welding; and - cementing, polishing, and finishing your project. We will learn skills like cutting glass, leading, soldering, etc., but also how to transform your own ideas into a piece of beautiful stained glass. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: The course is based on demonstrations and practice. For advanced students the tutor will guide you through all the stages to the completion of your panel. For beginners, we'll go through the basics of lead and copper foil to the completion of a small sample panel with each technique. Every week you'll receive an email with notes about the subject covered on the previous class and links to relevant glass artists or inspirational sources for design. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT; APPROXIMATE & ADDITIONAL COSTS: Students are required to provide their own materials, but may wish to wait until the course commences for info/advice from the tutor before purchasing expensive materials, and to confirm viability of the course. Tools and equipment are provided. But basic materials required are: 2 sticks of solder and two lengths of lead. Coloured glass, depending on your design. Initial cost for items will be approx £25. Glass options and glass suppliers will be discussed at first session. Students may source their own materials or request information from tutor at the class. Cost of materials will depend on size and complexity of your project.
