Copper-foiling is used as an alternative to a leaded panel, giving a similar effect but used for more delicate and detailed projects such as sun catchers, wall hangings, mirrors and smaller panels of any shape.

In this course students will learn the technique of copper foiling, they will choose glass from our large and varied range, grind the glass into accurate shapes, before joining the glass by soldering it together to complete a small item, such as a Christmas tree decoration or table decoration from designs provided.

This is a popular course because once the skill is learnt, you can easily continue this hobby at home without too much costly material, equipment or mess!
