Fascinated with stained glass? Ever want to learn how it is done? You can!
Class will meet on Tuesday's for 6 weeks starting April 16, 2013 @7-9pm.
In this hands-on six(6) week course, you will learn all the techniques needed to create your own stained glass pieces, all while creating your own panel using the Tiffany copper foil method.
What you get for your workshop fee: Six 2-hour fun and collaborative learning experiences, access to all tools required to create your stained glass panel, one pound of solder and one roll of copper foil.
You will need to purchase your own stained glass after the first evening. Glass ranges in price dramatically, but your initial piece should not cost you more than $30. It is possible to exceed this with the purchase of art glass.
