I offer three very different types of stained glass workshops:
In these classes we use the centuries old method which has hardly changed since the 12th century. A panel or stained glass window consists of pieces of coloured glass held together strips of lead came which is then soldered and cemented to create a weatherproof window.
Copper foil (Tiffany) method
This refers to the method where each piece of glass is wrapped in copper foil before being soldered together. This method is generally used for making gifts and smaller pieces such as sun-catchers. Thought to be invented by Louis Comfort Tiffany who was a prolific maker of lamps.
Stained glass mosaic
This is the process of creating a design or pattern using small pieces of stained glass adhered to either a mirror, glass sheet, vase or wooden shape.
