Copper Foiled Light Catcher - School Holiday Class
Learn the process of copper foiling!
Learn the process of creating a 2-dimensional copper foil (often known as Tiffany style) light catcher!
You will create your own design using our glass shapes while learning about the different types of window glass! Transparent, opaque, textured or clear, not to mention COLOURS! You will also be able to add an additional dimension to your piece by using bevels that will ensure that your light catcher will spread a rainbow around any room!
Once you have laid out your design we will teach you to apply copper foil to each of your glass pieces before the real fun begins!
You will then be guided to tack solder your piece together and then cover your piece in a solder coating before learning how to finish your piece!
