Approx. Material Cost: Included
Experience Required: Some copper foil experience
Type of Class: Demonstration and hands-on projects
Class Description: Work a stained glass masterpiece without foiling or leading! Start by gilding oak to showcase your glass design. Multiple layers of glass will be chosen for its peculiarities, its special qualities and its texture rather than for its light transparency. Work with cold fusion and “Just Make Glass” without the constraints of lead, solder, or flux! Sharpen cutting skills as you begin to think of glass as a sculptural art object rather than a color component. Get to know Cathy Claycomb and her work in our blog.
Safety: Please do not wear sandals if cutting or handling glass. Safety glasses are recommended
