Brief Description:

Have you ever wondered how glass is made and put together? Here is your chance to try a unique glass technique called ‘copperfoil,’ invented by Louis Comfort Tiffany which revolutionised the way that glass was made and put together. Small scale, delicate pieces can be made using this method. You will need a steady hand and lots of patience to learn this technique, but the results will be well worth the effort!  You will create a unique and beautiful copperfoil glass Christmas decoration using a combination of coloured glass and glass globs if desired.

Previous Experience and Knowledge Needed?
