Stained Glass I


View class option details »

The art of stained glass has dazzled viewers for over a thousand years, contributing to some of the most stunning architectural displays in the world. In this 8-week class, students learn to cut pattern and glass, assemble and solder using either the copper foil or lead channel method. The technique, history and the practicality of stained glass will be discussed, as well as cementing, rebaring, glazing, and the disparity between the opalescent and the transparent materials.

Students will make a stained glass panel 8” x 10” with 8-10 pieces of glass. Students are encouraged to design an original composition with help from the instructor for a second project of their choosing. Students can choose from a wide variety of glass.

All materials are included.

No prerequisite.

This class is also offered as private workshop! Contact for more information.

“The teachers’ support and amazing breadth of knowledge helped me achieve something beyond my dreams – a beautiful piece of art I’ll be proud to display. I’m also coming away from the class with a deep appreciation for the art form. I cannot wait for the next class!” – C.B., Kansas
