Recurring weekly on Monday

Gaye's Introductory Stained Glass class is a pre-requisite to this Copper Foil class. Now that you've had a go with leaded stained glass, learn the copper foil method. Each student will complete a project, such as a sun catcher or 8 x 10 panel. Pattern books will be available in the shop prior to the first class and Gaye is available to consult with you on your project. As it is soldering-intensive, each student will need to have his/her own soldering iron for use during class. Class price includes tools and materials you will need, including your own copper foiler and foil. Once registered, each student will choose his/her glass prior to class via email instructions. Because of the time needed to insure delivery of workshop materials, registrations will close on Monday, March 16th.
