Intermediate Stained Glass

Maker Playground | Ages 12+ | $159 per person

The Part 2 to "Stained Glass for Beginners"  this 2-part intermediate class will cover several new topics to expand your knowledge base as you create a larger project than in the beginner class. During the construction of your piece, we will talk about how to design a pattern and prepare your templates from that pattern, how to use stained glass patina to “color” your solder joints after the project is soldered, and the different methods available to you to frame your piece.

But, if you’re ready to get started on your own, there will be starter kits and tools available for purchase at a discounted rate. Please contact the instructor, (Marc), at masterrepurposers@gmail.com for more details and pricing, and he’ll have your equipment ready for you at the beginning of the class.
