Join Jackie Hunt for a one day Leaded Stained Glass Taster day workshop 

 An opportunity to dip your toe into and try this intensive one day Stained Glass taster day with Jackie making a leaded stained glass mirror.

Jackie will have some pre-prepared designs ready for you and there will be a choice of coloured glass along with some pre cut panels. At this stage Jackie willl explain the various considerations of creating a stained glass panel.   You will also have a go at cutting some of the glass yourself and learn safe cutting techniques, before then  carefully leading up the mirror according to the design. To complete your piece you will then finish by soldering everything together and finally cleaning and polishing using demonstrated techniques.

You will leave with your own bespoke stained glass mirrored panel.
