Glass Light Catcher Workshop

Make a glass light catcher using copper foil



5 hours Class size 1 to 10     label $150 - $165 ($165 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $150 for 2+ guests)


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, before cutting it out and refining the shapes using our glass tools including the grinder. You will also be able to add an additional dimension to your piece by using bevels that will ensure that your light catcher will spread a rainbow around any room if you desire.

Once you have laid out your design we will teach you to apply copper foil to each of your glass pieces before the real fun begins! You will then be guided to tack solder your piece together and then cover your piece in a solder coating before learning how to 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.

I had a wonderful time today - the teacher Rhain was fantastic - friendly and informative and the class was well-paced. The venue was comfortable and lunch was delicious. I’m inspired to start a new hobby!
