Stained glass course – Level 2 – Make a lampshade

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: ( 2) Level: Intermediate Category: ,

You have already tried your hand at stained glass and you have been dreaming of creating a lampshade since the dawn of time? Or you’d simply like to go one step further and take on a technical challenge that will enable you to light up your own home?

In this course of 6 x 3h sessions, you’ll use all the notions learned in your previous introductory workshops to create this pendant lampshade, as well as exploring new aspects of the art.

  • Day 1: Glass selection, cutting and grinding of 18 pieces
  • Day 2: Piece cleaning and copper tape wrapping
  • Day 3: Flat soldering of the lampshade panels and flux cleaning
  • Day 4: 3D assembly, addition of reinforcements and cleaning
  • Day 5: Continuation and completion of what was started in day 4
  • Day 6: Solder cleaning, patina application, rinsing, drying and waxing

At the end of the course, you’ll leave with your own creation!

Skills required: You must have already taken at least one beginner’s course in stained glass (here), as we don’t cover the basics due to lack of time. It’s highly recommended to have taken part in several stained glass workshops, not just the initiation, especially if you’ve only taken part in one of the 4-hour beginner’s workshops (Christmas balls or geometric heart) held in autumn 2022.

The price includes tools, glass, pattern and the good advice of our stained-glass artist. To ensure the quality of the final result and the feasibility of the workshop within the time and price constraints, no shape variants are available and you will not be allowed to design your own pattern. Glass of different colors, opacities and textures will be made available to you.

The electrical cord with socket for hanging the lampshade as a pendant light is not included. Our glazier can recommend where to get it. The opening above the lampshade is standard, according to the majority of what is sold in hardware stores or online.

Wonderful course with an equally wonderful teacher.

The course is paced well, with ample time to work through each step of the lampshade-making process. The lampshade’s pattern builds on the fundamentals of stained glass, making this project a delight for both newbies and experienced makers.

Furthermore, Isabelle is a fantastic teacher with much advice to offer. She’s my favourite type of teacher—one who can explain why certain methods or steps are used—which makes the process of learning and understanding concepts all the more enjoyable.

I would wholeheartedly recommend taking any of the stained glass classes taught be Isabelle; expect to come away with lots of knowledge, cheer, and a deep sense of satisfaction in challenging yourself!

Atelier bien construit, au rythme parfaitement adapté.

Une très très belle expérience tant humaine que d’apprentissage! Le format est parfait, Isabelle est un amour de professeur qui a à cœur la transmission dans la joie et la douceur, et le projet fini est un bonheur à regarder chaque jour chez soi avec fierté.

Je recommande chaleureusement, ça vaut vraiment la peine.

Les prochaines personnes à le suivre vont être bien chanceuses!!
