Lockdown Video Glass Box
At the beginning the first lockdown here in the UK, I posted a free online course for a Stained Glass Garden Mosaic Panel. It was for everyone in isolation who either wanted to learn a new craft or take their skill in another direction. You can find this course plus many others on my YouTube Channel 'Sue Smith Glass'
The course is broken down into 19 mini videos beginning with tools, taking you through various techniques and ending with grouting, cleaning and polishing your finished mosaic.
As many of you got back to me saying you could not find the tools, materials and fittings I use for my Garden Mosaics, I have made them available from my online store. All the weather resistant fittings are made by local engineers to my own design. See 'Garden Display Stands' and
To accompany this free course I have also put together a Garden Panel Glass Pack with all the border strips, stained glass and inclusions I used, which is also available through my online shop (excluding the mirror base). The box contains enough glass to easily complete this mosaic and have plenty left over to use in your next project. Many of you have your own tools but if you are starting out or missing any, I can also supply these if needed, just ask and I can send a link.
The glass panel, when completed, can be displayed all year long in the garden - either by using a long stake which can be pushed into a border or planter or hung on a wall or fence. See: 'Fittings and Stands'
