About this course

Inspired by 1970s flower power, celebrate the 50th Anniversary of West Dean College by making a stained glass golden daisy leaded panel. You will learn how to cut glass followed by leading, soldering and finishing.

Course Description

This unique one day course gives you the opportunity to make a piece of traditional stained glass with a golden daisy pattern, designed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of West Dean College. The panel is 25cm square and on this practical course you will learn the basic construction processes of cutting glass, putting a panel together with lead, soldering, cementing and finishing.

All the materials needed to create your stained glass piece are supplied. Due to time constraints, you will not be able to design your own patterns. Please be aware that most of the work is done standing up.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your GP before enrolling on this course, as working with lead and solder can be harmful to the developing baby.

This course is part of our 50th anniversary celebrations – learn a traditional skill with a selection of 50 special one-day courses inspired by original 1970s subjects or focusing on heritage crafts.
