Stained Glass: Festive Decoration Making in Copper Foil

Sorry, this event is now sold out.

  • Booking essential

You'll choose designs and glass from a selection of vibrant colours, and you'll be shown how to cut it to a prepared pattern. You'll then be taught how to cut, shape and place your copper foil, solder and display your decoration with loops and wire. The completed stained glass decoration is yours to take home. The pieces can vary in colour, size and shape.

No experience is required. This course is suitable for adult beginners.

Your tutor for this course is Steve Lewis. Steve Lewis trained as a stained glass designer at Swansea Metropolitan University, gaining further experience at Lincoln Cathedral as a trainee in stained glass conservation. In 1998 Steve was awarded a scholarship to study stained glass conservation by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST). In 2012 Steve obtained a Masters in Historic Conservation at Oxford Brookes. In 2014 Steve established SDL Stained Glass, and continues to provide high quality services in design and conservation of stained glass.

Our class sizes are small, so you'll have a chance to engage with the tutor while you work.

This Stained Glass Course takes place on Saturday 16 November, 9am-3pm. There will be a break for lunch and a mess room to eat lunch in, alternatively there is an on-site café. Tea and coffee provided.
