Beginning Stained Glass Workshop

stained gl

 

This workshop is designed for newcomers to stained glass as well as those experienced with stained glass art. Whether you are working on an existing project and need guidance, time, and space to finish, or you want to explore stained glass for the first time, this workshop gives you the time, space and expert guidance to help you make something beautiful.

Tools are available for use in class, although students may want to purchase their own to work on their project at home. Students will need to purchase and bring their own materials.

Students should visit Kiss My Glass to make project choices, materials selection and purchases according to skill level and interest. Pattern preparation takes a little time so students should plan to visit Kiss My Glass at least one week before class.

Please see Extension’s Class Resources web page for important information about what to wear, what to bring and other details to make your day enjoyable!
