Stained Glass

Everyone loves stained glass and the beautiful colours as the light streams through it. Well imagine being able to make your own?

u3In late 2015 a Stained Glass course was introduced to the Men’s group at the Kells Resource Centre. Such was their enthusiasm and passion the course became a popular mixed group class in 2016.

Over a period of 6 week (2 hour sessions) the beginners became familiar with all the tools and equipment used in stained glass and the techniques of glass cutting, grinding, copper foiling and soldering. The students were challenged to explore their artistic side by designing their own mirrors. The results were amazing!! There was a real sense of achievement.

Beginners completed stained glass sun catchers, photo frames, designed their own 12498406_1157708194241653_892927039_nmirrors, made clocks and lamps using copper foil technique. With further classes the students went on to create boxes, their own designs in both I and 2 sided lamps…..very impressive results.

Why not get creative and learn the art of stained glass in the company of a small relaxed group? Classes are suitable for beginners and improvers who want to expand their knowledge.
