Sarah 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 she will 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.
