Whimsical shapes, illustrative scenes, or divine stories, stained glass has re-created the light in our lives for centuries. Stained glass artisans use both glass color and texture to produce light forms and patterns creating mood and character in small and large spaces. Want to know more? Then this three-session stained glass workshop will shed some light on the process of stained glass.
Now you can try your hand at making stained glass art in this workshop for beginners. All of the basic techniques will be covered, from glass cutting, foiling, soldering, and completing with patina and polishing compound. Glass artist Claudia McCall will share her expertise and knowledge, teaching students the skills involved in working safely with stained glass, and creating a beautiful, sturdy piece of art.
