Technical Skills Workshop - Soldering Masterclass
Improve your soldering, add new skills, achieve a better finish for your copper-foiled stained glass

"The course and surroundings were very inspiring " - Margaret

This workshop is for those who've done some copper-foiled stained glass already and wish to improve the appearance of their work though neater soldering.
The workshop incudes practical exercises as well as some theory to help you understand what's happening when you solder your pieces.

Half-day copper foiling Stained glass Soldering Masterclass class for up to 4 people

The course covers:

  • Soldering Irons, solder, fluxes and which to use, when
  • The types of soldering styles used in copper foil - beads and edges
  • Cleaning and caring for your soldering iron, including tinning the tip
  • Types of patina and how to achieve a smooth finish

We'll start with demonstrations of the essential techniques, and looking at how to deal with problem areas.
You'll work on pre-foiled exercises, with feedback on progress throughout.

We'll share some of our secrets, and encourage you to put these techniques in to practice on your own work at home.
Towards the end of the workshop you'll experiment with patinas, learning about preparation and application, and cleaning for the best end result.
