Stained Glass 101: Starting Out
Skill Level: Beginner or Refresher Course
Age Requirement: 18 and up
Only registered students may attend classes.
Learn how to make a simple stained glass suncatcher! No experience required! Everything will be provided for you, with the EXCEPTION of your glass.
This course consists of THREE sessions of 2.5 hours each. In addition, beginning the day of your first class through the day of your final class, you will have use of the classroom and any tools needed to work on your project(s). Class use MUST be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance via phone or email.
Come into the shop BEFORE your first class session and we will help you select one of our 12 patterns and the perfect glass for your design and budget (typical glass cost is approx. $25 – $35, but can vary depending on your choices). You may not bring in your own pattern for this class. The 12 patterns we use are selected especially for the types of cuts and assembly process that a beginner will need.
This workshop is designed to offer an introduction to stained glass using the copper foil method. You will learn to cut and shape the glass to fit your pattern, apply copper foil to your pieces, solder them together and add the finishing touches.
**A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HAND STRENGTH IS REQUIRED WHEN CUTTING GLASS. IF YOU FEEL THIS COULD BE A CONCERN FOR YOU (ie. hand tremor or arthritis) PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE REGISTERING FOR THE CLASS.
