STUDENTS LEARN in a relaxed atmosphere by selecting from a catalog of projects suitable for beginners. By "suitable for beginners", we mean that the overall size is relatively small and the complexity is limited when compared to a professional-level piece. We do this because creating stained glass art is a multi-step process and there is a lot to learn! You will learn to select glass (choose your own colors!), transfer designs to pattern paper with appropriate layout markings, safely cut and grind glass, solder, apply putty, patina, wax, and polish your project until it's something you will be proud to display in your own home or that of a loved one. See the accompanying image for an example of a very pretty finished piece made by a student.
FEE AND SCHEDULE: This is a six week class. The class fee is $100, which includes the use of the shop, shop equipment, and professional instruction. Materials such as glass, lead, and zinc are additional. You will also need a GOOD glass cutter; we have these for sale at the studio. We'll store your in-process project for you during the week.
ONGOING CLASSES are available on a weekly basis for those wishing more advanced instruction. At this point, students will have the freedom to choose between designing their own project or choosing another from our catalog of designs. The weekly fee is $15.
AGE RESTRICTION: No experience is necessary, but due to the presence of power equipment, hot tooling, and sharp edges, we do have a minimum age requirement of 16.
