Join Alison of WildBird Studio to learn the Copper Foil Technique of Stained Glass – also known as Tiffany Glass. You will learn how to follow a pattern, cut, grind and foil glass, assemble the pieces and finally solder them into your very own fabulous creation. Each student will make a light-catcher as well as learning more about the deeper legacy of Stained Glass and what its place is in modern Ireland. This course is perfect for beginners or for anyone who would like to see what Stained Glass is like as a hobby.
