Ask me more about me coming to your home or venue to teach stained glass. See a description of the lesson below. You will make your own leaded light – it’s really fun!
When I teach at Hunworth Village Hall, NR24 2EQ 10am – 4pm it’s £125/person including a cracking lunch. Unfortunately I can’t offer refunds, but credit can be transferred to future classes.
Stained Glass tuition. For children with their parents…for adults…for GCSE students, retirees, people who are good at art, people who are bad at art…anyone! Materials, tools, lunch and refreshments are provided.
Students will make their own leaded light. See below for more details.
All standards catered for and all confidences boosted!
No previous experience necessary.
During this day, students will make a coloured glass leaded light.
Students will make a 7×9” leaded light that is comprised of five pieces of coloured glass connected by lead came, soldered at the joints, with copper wire hanging loops.
Skills that will be learnt; cutting glass straight and curved; drawing a cut template; cutting using a cut template; choosing coloured glass combinations; cutting lead; putting glass in the lead; assembling the leaded light on a cut template on a board using horse shoe nails; soldering the lead joints; soldering copper wire hanging loops onto the leaded light. The attendees’ leaded lights will be made and ready for then to take home at the end of the day.
Use of the following tools and materials will be learnt (all tools and materials supplied); glass cutter; grozing players; cut template; lead knife; horse shoe nails; oyster knife; glass; lead came; solder; tallow flux; straight-edge; sharpie pen; soldering iron (dangerously hot, adults only, thick gloves should be worn, water will be nearby). Masks will be worn throughout the day apart from while eating and drinking, because of covid, and because during soldering, the solder emits lead fumes when heated, which must not be breathed in). Plastic gloves will be worn while handing lead because lead must not enter the blood stream.
Then we will all have a delicious lunch.
It’s going to be AWESOME!
Covid Safety Precautions; I will ask each attendee to take a rapid flow test before each class; I will wear a mask myself and ask attendees to wear a mask at all times unless eating or drinking; students will not share tools or materials; there will be no more than ten people in the large hall at any one time so it will be possible to remain 2m away from each other; the hall and tools are cleaned and disinfected before and after each class. I will take into account government guidelines at the time and amend safety precautions accordingly.
I’m DBS checked (as I’m a carer for the elderly, employed by Home Instead).
