Introduction to Stained Glass


On Saturday you will make a suncatcher that is yours to keep. You will be provided all of the tools and supplies to make this first piece. There will be 3 patterns to choose from, they are sufficiently challenging so you will understand the process but not so difficult that they are discouraging. On Sunday you build on what you have learned and make a small stained glass panel from supplied patterns.  The day will include a field trip to the Deluge Design Stained Glass Studio in Cambridge, NY where you will select glass and purchase your supplies.
