This class will cover the very basic skills and tools needed to work with stained glass. Choosing an appropriate pattern, cutting, grinding and fitting glass, as well as copper, flux, and soldering basics will be covered in detail. All tools, glass and materials are provided, so just show up ready to create a fantastic one of kind piece with your own two hands! Each student will complete their piece by the end of class, and will gain the experience to participate in Stained Glass Open Studio for intermediate and advanced students. This class is specially geared to beginning glass artists, so if you have always wanted to do it and were afraid to try–this is for you!
**Students are encouraged to bring in their own designs as a starting point, however, we have plenty of patterns available to choose from.
