What you will do
5.5 hour workshop
Brighten up your home or garden or give someone a truly unique gift - in this workshop you'll learn to cut mirror glass and coloured glass and work with lead and solder to make beautiful mirrors with stained glass borders.
Whether you have a specific design in mind or just want to try an unusual new craft, this workshop is a great way to learn the basics of working with glass and mirrors from a master craftsperson. Not only will you leave with your own stained glass mirror, but you'll gain the skills to keep making them at home.
Among many new techniques you will learn to design for glass, how to safely cut glass sheets and how to lead and solder a panel. All materials and safety equipment will be included.
Each class is deliberately quite small and intimate, so that everyone can benefit from bespoke teaching. And of course, the classes are informal and fun!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Aimee McCulloch Stained Glass
After a degree in Illustration, Aimee became fascinated by the beauty of stained glass during an internship with a glass studio in Glasgow. Learning the traditional skills of stained glass (which have remained much the same for hundreds of years), Aimee then completed an MA in Glass Design, and now runs her own stained glass studio in London, making contemporary stained glass panels, windows and sculptures.
Glass is an amazing material, and stained glass craft can result in extraordinary designs, from the traditional to the contemporary and from gallery artworks to beautiful additions to the home. The dazzling effects of colour and light are genuinely exciting to work with.
Aimee really enjoys teaching, and recently demonstrated her skills for an upcoming BBC TV series on craft and making. Class numbers are deliberately kept small, so that everyone can benefit from bespoke teaching and advice and can leave with real stained glass skills. And of course, the classes are fun! The studio is contemporary and creative, and the emphasis is on having an enjoyable day learning something completely unique!
All materials (glass,soldering equipment, cutting tools) are included, and safety equipment is provided. And if you're short of inspiration, there are loads of stained glass books and example designs to get you going with your own! Drinks and snacks are provided, but please bring a packed lunch. As you'll be using tools and craft-working, please wear comfortable clothes which you don't mind getting a little art-messy! Closed-toe shoes must be worn. Please also bear in mind that, as we are working with glass, it is possible that you'll end up with some small finger cuts! If needed, I will provide plasters and antiseptic!
