- Canalside at my studio in Fairport
In this 12-hour beginner’s workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of the copper foil method of stained glass. Class size is limited to two (or three if requested) students, so you will receive lots of one-on-one attention. We will cover: - safety in the workshop - introduction to the tools of the trade - identifying different types of glass - scoring and cutting using hand tools - grinding and fitting - foiling - soldering - framing and finishing The studio is on the Erie Canal so, weather permitting, we will enjoy the outdoors and do all of our soldering and finishing outside. This class is suited to students with little or no experience as well as those wanting to review the fundamentals. At the end of the workshop, you will have created a beautiful panel (up to 20 cut pieces of glass and 11”x17” in size) that you can hang in your home AND have the skills you need to create more pieces. Cost: $175 per (minimum enrollment of two students) The cost of the workshop includes access to all of our tools and equipment. There is a separate materials cost for consumables including glass, as the cost of glass can vary widely by colour and type. Once registered, you will be sent a PDF of different patterns from which to choose. Glass will be selected on the first day of class. Please note that once the workshop dates have been set, unless all parties agree to a date change, classes for individuals will only be rescheduled at the additional cost of $20 per hour.
