STAINED GLASS                                                                                          Tutor: Teri Lockton

The art and craft of making stained glass is ancient, but it is being practised today in both a traditional and contemporary way.  This class is for complete beginners, as well as anyone wanting to improve existing skills and learn new techniques.

Students will learn to cut glass to a pattern (or “cartoon”), lead up the glass into a stained glass panel, solder all of the joins and waterproof the panel by using leaded light cement.  We will also learn how to design for stained glass and students can then embark on their own projects.  Those who wish can also learn the copper foil technique, invented by Louis Tiffany and now familiar to us in “Tiffany” lamps and lightcatchers.  There will be many books available to inform and inspire you.

Tools will be available for students’ use at the beginning of the class and then, for those of you who wish to carry on the skills learnt, a list of tools to purchase and suggested suppliers will be available.  I look forward to welcoming you to the class!
