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.
Starting on Tuesday January 30 at Little Italy, sessions will take place on January 30, February 6, 13, 20, 27 and March 5 – from 6pm to 9pm.
