Stained Glass

Description

Description

Using the copper foil method, participants in stained glass classes will be introduced to the basic techniques necessary to create a piece in stained glass: scoring and breaking, grinding, wrapping glass pieces in copper foil and soldering the pieces together. BEGINNING STAINED GLASS uses the copper foil method.  This class is for beginning stained glass enthusiasts or those who want to refresh their stained glass skills while creating new projects. Participants will be introduced to basic stained glass terminology and skills: glass safety, project pattern preparation, scoring and breaking of stained glass, grinding cut glass pieces to fit the pattern and removal of sharp edges, cleaning and wrapping glass pieces in copper foil, soldering the pieces together, and cleaning/polishing and framing your project.

Most participants will complete several small projects by the end of the class, depending on the size of the chosen artwork. Project supplies are included (including up to $30 worth of glass), and the instructor will provide patterns for class teaching projects or will work with you to choose your own. This workshop provides an opportunity for fun, fellowship, and creativity.

Supplies

Most materials are included in the cost of the class. If additional glass is needed (because your project is larger) that can be purchased online for $5 per order.
