               Materials and equipment List

              Basic / essential equipment

     A pair of safety Glasses these can be purchased cheaply from DIY
     Glasscutter – a basic glass-cutter can be purchased at DIY stores or
      hardware shop, approximate cost – £4.00 these can be very
      difficult to use particularly when trying to cut curves or irregular
      pieces of glass
      The best cutters to use are specialist oil-filled glass cutters which are
      a lot more expensive at £20.00 but will last for years and allow you
      to cut glass more precisely and the flexible head will make cutting
      curves and circles much easier.
     A Rigid Stanley knife
     A Pair of pliers
     A piece of chipboard or similar wood this should be at lest half an
      inch thick and approximately A3 size. Your wood should always be
      a little bigger than the glass panel you are making.

A sketchbook which will be used to show progress of your design work
and can also be used as a scrapbook to show examples of your source
materials, photographs, postcards and pictures you have collected

     Supply of glass
     Glass can be purchased in a wide range of colours, some can be
      opaque, and others translucent, glass can also have a variety of
      surface textures. Prices of glass also vary widely. Red, yellow and
      orange glass is usually more expensive whilst blues and greens are a
      little cheaper to buy.
     For your first piece of stained glass work I have brought along a
      range of basic colours for you to choose from to make up your
      panel which I will sell at cost price. Going along to the suppliers
      yourself will allow you much more choice over colours and textures
      of glass.
     Supply of lead This is sold in strips approximately 2 metres long and
      can be purchased in a range of widths to suit your design.
     Approximate cost - £3.00 - £4.00 for 2 metres, dependant on
                              Specialist tools

      Oil-filled glass-cutters   Approximate cost £20.00

      Grozing pliers              Approximate cost £11.00
       (for “nibbling” glass after it has been cut if it breaks unevenly)

      Lead knife                                     £9.00
