This is for the person who wants to learn how to do stained glass and be able to do it at home. In this class you have several patterns to choose from and they are 15 pcs. You will learn how to cut glass using several different cutters, finding the right one for you. You will trace your pattern using a light box and cut out the design using special pattern scissors. You will be taught how to use a glass grinder. This will help you smooth and shape your piece to fit into your design. You will be showed how to foil your pieces. You will learn how to solder your pieces together and if desired you can patina your finished piece. You will frame your piece with cane and attach hangers and chain. Lastly, you will clean and polish your piece. This class varies as to how long it will take. Each pattern is different so I let people go at their own pace. Therefore, you get the proper explanation and time to work on certain difficulties that you may have.
Each lesson (weather it’s in the morning, afternoon or evening) is two and half hours. Each time you come the fee is $25.00. All the glass, materials and tools are included except for a pair of safety glasses which you can bring or purchase here.
The average person has taken 8 or 9 weeks in completing their project, attending one session per week. Please note some have completed their product as early as 5 weeks and others have taken 13 weeks.
I also have just added patterns that are only 10 pcs if you are interested in them. I have no feedback on these because it is a new addition.
