Poppies of Rememberance
Copper Foiled Poppy Sun Catcher
In this class you will make a copper foiled Poppy. There will be a set of pre-cut petals that will make up the poppy suncatcher. You will learn how to wrap the copper foil around the individual pieces before finally soldering the pieces together to complete the poppy. You will then polish the poppy and take away with you at the end of the workshop. Please be aware that the poppy should be hung indoors Ideally.
This workshop is suitable for adults and Children over the age of 14 (all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the duration of the workshop). All students will be using a hot soldering iron to construct the poppy, this gets very hot, so extreme caution and common sense are required throughout this process.
Cost £40.00 per student max of 6 students (£5.00 is donated to the poppy appeal for each complete poppy piece)
Saturday 5th November 1 x morning session 10.30am to 12 noon
Fused glass slurry poppy complete with 2 x glass leaves (1hr to make the petals)
On this workshop you will learn the slurry technique and will make 8 x petals to be fused into a double thickness poppy head and this will be fused in 2 x separate firings. In addition to the poppy you will be able to have 2 x fused glass leaves added to the copper pipe stem and this can have a personal message added (up to 6 characters per leaf) This technique is very simple to do and you can choose whether you would prefer a traditional red poppy or a different colour (selection available on the day)
Due to the firing process you will need to arrange to collect your completed piece from the studio the following week.
Cost £40.00 per student max of 6 students per class (£5.00 is donated to the poppy appeal for each complete poppy piece)
