Tiffany style stained glass windows remain popular after decades. Apart from being a beautiful addition to any home, garden, or commercial setting, they are fun to make!

 

In this introductory course you will learn how to design patterns, make patterns, cut glass, assemble the piece, solder, and finish. You'll learn the tricks needed to construct a window that will fit into the exact dimensions of an established opening.

 

At the first lesson students will use our tools while learning to cut plain window pane glass. We'll review design principles for your project and the tools and materials you'll need to purchase to begin. At the next four meetings we'll cut and assemble our pieces, solder, and putty them. Each student. should be able to leave after the six sessions with a finished piece.

 

For the first session please bring the following:

  • Safety glasses
  • A soft bristled brush (the softer the bristles the better job it will do)
  • A stack of newspaper

We use the newspaper as a padding under the glass to prevent breakage while cutting the glass. The brush is used to sweep small glass shards off the work surface which would contribute to the glass breaking instead of cutting as the artist desires.
