Instructor: Sue Smith
This is an excellent class for people who want to know about stained glass and what it takes to get started. Each student will learn the art of foiled glass fabrication by making a stunning sun catcher. Students will have a choice of glass colors. All materials and tools will be provided by the instructor to make their project. Skills will be demonstrated first and then every student work hands on to mark the pattern, cut the glass and using an electric glass grinder to shape and fit the glass. After the pieces are prepared, the students wrap each piece in stained glass foil and solder it using a soldering iron. After piece is clean up the project will be complete. You will pick your design. Both designs are between 4” and 5” . Students will leave with a ready to hang glass sun catcher. See Example 1 and Example 2. You may bring a bag lunch and drink or go to one of the nearby restaurants for lunch.
