The project

Prior to the course we will discuss your project ideas with you and you are encouraged to come with a clear idea of what you wish to create. You will begin by being instructed on how to enlarge the design to its full size, using strong paper, as well as making a perfect copy on normal paper. Each shape designed on the project represent a piece of glass, each piece is numbered on both copies of the design. Next students cut the strong paper templates following the design with special double blade scissors, these templates are used in the glass cutting phase.

Glass Cutting

Students will select the glass colors for their panel and with the use of a traditional glass cutter will cut the pieces of glass using helped by the strong paper templates. The edges of the glass are refined using a grinding machine, which we will show you how to use.

Copper Foiling

Once all the pieces of glass are cut, we teach you how to apply the copper foil along the glass edges.


The copper foiled glass pieces are then laid in their exact position on the normal paper and students will learn how to weld the panel together using solder and a soldering iron.

Yours to keep

All the work produced during the course will be kept by the students We will support your learning by offering all the studio materials you need and carefully supervise and advise you during the painting phases. At the end of our glass painting courses we support students purchase colours, mediums and brushes to continue practicing at home.
