Spend a whole day emersed in the creative process of copper foil in our custom-built art glass studio in Kyneton. Learn the process of creating a two-dimensional copper foil (often known as Tiffany style) glass light catcher!

You will create your own light catcher from start to finish using one of our designs as a guide. After learning about the different types of window glass; transparent, opaque, textured or clear, not to mention a huge range of colours, you will learn to transfer your pattern onto the glass and how to cut it out. You will learn to refine the shapes using our glass tools including the grinder. Once you have laid out your design we will teach you how to securely apply copper foil to each of your glass pieces, then real fun begins!

You will then be guided to tack solder your piece together and then tin your piece in a solder coating and attach your hanging system. You will also be able to add an additional dimension to your piece by adding a bevelled crystal that will ensure that your light catcher will spread a rainbow around any room if you desire. Then you can finish your piece with patinas if you wish!

A delicious lunch will be provided created from all local organic produce and able to cater for any dietary requirements you may have. We also provide you with a divine afternoon treat and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course.

The workshop costs include all materials required and all tools will be provided in the studio for use by participants.

Health and Safety Warning
Please be aware that this workshop will place participants in contact with a small amount of lead in the soldering process, participants who are pregnant or have other medical concerns are recommended to seek medical advice.
