Stained Glass Classes
Leaded Glass windows are found throughout history in church cathedrals. This lovely technique found its way into the home with Victorian Era design, and has remained popular ever since. Stained glass is cut and fitted into the channel of lead came, then soldered at the joints and cemented to provide strength that will endure for years to come.
The technique of copper foil was mastered by Tiffany and is just as popular today. Stained glass is cut and wrapped in copper foil tape, then the foiled seams are soldered together, holding glass permanently in place.
Stained glass classes at the studio are enjoyed by those with beginner knowledge of the craft and those who have had experience in it before.
