Tree of Life Workshop

No previous experience required, open to everybody.

This half day workshop gives you the opportunity to participate in a stained glass class and create your own personalised Tree of Life.  You will be copper foiling pre-prepared glass pieces and soldering your own tree and adding heat resistant “found” objects to personalise it or use some of my glass beads.  The trees are in a range of colours, the Winter tree boasts beautiful clear iridescent glasses, blues, purples and whites, whereas the Summer tree is in a range of various shades of green and the Autumn tree can be created in beautiful reds, oranges, yellows and browns.  It is predominantly for those people who prefer not to cut their own glass as pieces will already be cut and prepared for you. I will be demonstrating glass cutting during the class.  Maximum 6 students.  Fee of £50.00 per person includes all materials and use of tools.  Gift Vouchers available.
