Marvel at how light sparkles and bright colours beam through stained glass in this fun and creative introductory workshop. You will learn all of the basics of this unique artform, including how to safely cut, grind, foil, solder, patina and polish to create your own striking 5-6 piece sun catcher. Each student will be given the choice of a simple bird design to complete while exploring the unique properties of glass with its many textures and colours. All tools and materials provided upon payment of Materials Fee to instructor at workshop. This workshop is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. Safety glasses and gloves will be provided. All shoes must be closed toed – no sandals please. You may bring a surgical mask if concerned with airborne particles and an apron if concerned with mess, however neither are necessary. Bring a bagged lunch.
