Stained Glass I - Alfred Taylor
This class will introduce you to foil techniques for creating stained glass. We will discuss the differences between glasses, foils, leads, channel and patinas and explain what tools we use and their purposes. Before we actually start making any projects we will practice scoring and breaking glass. This will give us a chance to try different cutters to see what works best for you. After that, we will be making a small sun catcher from beginning to end. We will make the pattern, transfer it to the glass, score, break, and grind and foil the glass, solder the pieces together and finish the piece by cleaning and polishing it. The next projects will increase in difficulty as we build up the size and number of pieces from the sun catcher culminating in the manufacture of a larger panel, a kaleidoscope and finally a 4d Angel. Lab fee covers all materials needed to complete basic projects including glass, solder, lead, marbles, mirrors, foil and edging material, as well as patterns and instructions for each project. Additional materials will be available for purchase.

Lab Fee: $100.00
Estimated Materials Cost: $0-$75

Stained Glass I - Marji Ferrell
This class will acquaint students with the various types of stained glass, tools, chemicals, and building techniques used in stained glass fabrication. We will start by making a small panel, which allows students to practice glass cutting and the copper-foil method of fabrication. We will discuss how to design for stained glass, considering color schemes and choosing the appropriate type of glass for each project. Students will chose subsequent projects with the instructors guidance. Lab fee covers the first project and some materials. Some glass and tools will be available for purchase from the instructor.
