This program focuses on stained glass creation using the copper foil method which is done in five principal steps: designing on paper and transferring the design to glass, cutting glass and grinding down the edges, wrapping glass pieces with copper foil, soldering the pieces, and applying finishing patinas.
Registration fees include use of grinding and soldering tools. Students are required to supply their own materials including glass, solder and foil. A supply list will be provided during registration. Beginners’ kits are available for purchase at $20, which is payable directly to the instructor and includes supplies for three suncatchers.
Robina Bagnell is a Sydney native who has been working with glass since 1983. She was a founding member of Glass Roots and was involved in the stained glass windows at the McConnell Library in Sydney. She has been instructing stained glass since 1985.
