Stained Glass Intensive

stained

Create a unique, custom designed stained glass piece with expert guidance and support as you go! Choose from florals, mission style, and several other patterns, or create your own unique, custom design. Students will create a stained glass panel roughly 1-3 square feet. Projects can be a little larger or smaller, based on complexity.  Please note that custom designs must be approved by the instructor to be sure they can be completed in the time available during class.

Before class, you will begin at Kiss My Glass to select or design your pattern, and choose your glass. Completing this prep work ahead of time allows you to have the pattern you have chosen, and all of your glass, ready ahead of time so you may use the entire class time working on your project.

Students should bring two copies of their pattern and all of their glass for their project to class.

Students may bring their own tools if they have them—but please mark your tools clearly with your name! You may also choose to use the tools provided in class. Glass purchase ahead of time is required but other miscellaneous materials like lead, zinc, solder and chemicals can be purchased in class for a flat discounted rate of between $40 -$60, depending on your project.

Kiss My Glass is located at 660 7th Ave, Santa Cruz, and their hours are Monday thru Saturday 10 am to 6:00 pm. Please be sure to stop by and choose your project at least 2 days prior to the class start.
