Stained Glass 101 (2 session workshops)
During this two-day weekend workshop, students will learn the basic skills of stained glass. Instructors will start by teaching students to cut and grind glass. Then, using the American Tiffany Copper Foil technique, students will prepare their objects to be assembled. The final step is to solder the pieces together to create sun-catchers, window panels or ornaments. No prior experience necessary.
