Through the Looking Glass

Inspired by the Physic Gardens these beautiful pieces would look lovely in my home. Unbelievably these were designed and created on a One Day Course at the Old Hall Cowbridge. Learners spent the first hour exploring the Physic Garden, taking simple thumbnail sketches or some used their mobile phones to take a photograph. The lines and colours identified from their image were used to inspire their design in which to create their stained glass. The course enabled you to cut the glass safely and accurately, how to grind the edges, apply copper foil and solder together. The tutor Ingrid Walker was so encouraging and provided all the materials needed. All you had to do was remember to wear closed toe shoes and have arms and legs covered. A fantastic day out.
