BEGINNER (The Basics)
You will make a stained glass window using the leaded method of construction. You will also be introduced to the copper foil method. You will learn glass selection, proper glass cutting, grinding, soldering, patina and finish techniques. At the end of the class you will have completed a leaded glass panel. We have different beginning patterns to choose from. No tools will be provided but we have several beginning kits to purchase.
With the “Basics” covered, you will now learn advanced techniques and receive instruction on more difficult projects. i.e. design work, 3-D, other copper foil techniques, etc… You may construct anything you want from copper foil panels, to kaleidoscopes, panel lamps and more! Project size is limited to a 2 ft. x 2 ft. size. Some experience using lead and cutting glass is preferred.
