Stained Glass for Beginners

Learn all the steps of creating a stained glass window. From cutting to leading to soldering, we will do two complete projects. One will be done using the lead came method, and the other will be done using the copper foil method. At the completion of the class each participant will be able to continue on and create designs of their own. 

The first class session will be used to discuss stained glass and our project. Tom will demonstrate glass cutting techniques and the process of making a panel. We will cover the materials and tools needed, safety concerns, and answer any questions. Everyone gets to cut glass the first night! The remaining class sessions will be spent working on the projects. Everyone will do the same project. Besides the class fee students will need to get some supplies and tools for the class project; materials are also available from the instructor. Expect to pay $25 - $70 for your supplies and tools. Some tools and materials will be supplied by the instructor.
