During this 10 week glass art class you will learn a range of glass techniques, including cutting, cold construction, etching and copper foil stained glass. Participants will experiment with transparency, colour and shape while creating 2D projects using the Tiffany glass technique. Materials are included in the price of the course. Class size will be kept small to ensure maximum tutor guidance, and places are therefore limited. Please enrol early to avoid disappointment. This class fills up quickly.
