Create a design and learn how to transfer your illustration onto sheet glass to make your very own stained glass suncatcher!

In this workshop you will learn to transfer your illustration onto sheet glass.  Score and break the glass and smooth the edgesand, before learning how to apply copper foil to each edge. Then, solder the pieces together to complete the suncatcher, adding a hook for hanging.

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in the Rural Arts Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit the café page to view our menu.
