Intermediate Stained Glass -
The Copper Foil Method II

In this class you will create a 11" x 14" panel comprised of 30-60 pieces of glass. You'll recieve your own tools and supplies (glass not included) to complete each step at home in between sessions. You will also be able to choose from many patterns the studio has available.

We'll discuss art glass design basics and go over the different types of glass and manufacturers while learning the various techniques of pattern preparation, glass cutting, shaping, foiling, soldering, patination, finishing and framing.

Each step in creating a beautifully finished piece of copper foil art glass is thoroughly explained. This is the perfect class for those students who would like to increase their knowlegde and skill of art glass or those who would like to refresh and reinforce techniques they may have already learned.
