Class Description

Come to the Rochester Maker's Space to learn the basic skills for making a stained glass project. The Tiffany Stained Glass method will be taught which involves using copper tape to surround small pieces of colored glass to then solder together. Projects may include, but are not limited to, small windows, sun catchers, garden ornaments, jewelry, boxes and terrariums.

All the necessary materials will be provided by the Makerspace. However, after the first class you may want to consider purchasing some extra equipment recommended by our instructor.
