Create a beautiful glass kaleidoscope using the copperfoil technique. Copperfoiling is similar to leadlighting, but it uses a slightly different method to hold the glass together.

This technique allows you to create 3 dimensional items such as lamps, boxes and suncatchers. During this class you will learn to cut the glass, apply the foil and solder your piece together.
