Using the copper foil method, students will be able to create their own abstract project in the shape of a glass rectangle. Students can choose a pattern or create their own design out of many types and colors of stained glass. The Instructor will emphasize the importance of the stability and structure of the glass piece, along with learning about preparing a pattern for a project. Other techniques covered are scoring, breaking and grinding glass and the use of stained glass tools. Students can bring some of their personal small treasures (i.e. small seashells, bits of broken china, costume jewelry, agates, etc.). The Instructor will provide the stained glass and other materials to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind design. The students will take home a completed stained glass piece. There is a supply list which includes safety glasses, pen, and black sharpie. Please wear closed heel and toe shoes.
