The class is an eight week session.   In these classes there may be a mix of beginning students, intermediate students and advanced students all working together which make the classes not only interesting but also very stimulating.

Class Fee is $250. Students should expect to spend about $200-$300 for tools and supplies. This will get you a basic set of hand tools and supplies to complete at least two projects.  Students must have their own hand tools and supplies which can be purchased at class time.  All students receive a 10% discount on tools and supplies. Work tables and some of the studio tools (for example grinders & soldering irons) can be used during the class.  This will give the average student good groundwork for learning the procedures for making windows and the confidence to complete one on their own.  

Students can choose to learn the copper foil method, the lead came method, or both!  For the copper foil technique the glass is cut and ground, then wrapped with a sticky back copper foil tape. The pieces are then soldered to hold them together.  The traditional leading technique uses lead strips to separate the pieces of glass and are soldered at the joints to give the window structure. You are encouraged to make at least two windows but can produce as many as your time will allow.

Come in and see the beautiful things that you can make yourself!  We have a full line of tools and supplies.  We also have finished projects which you can look at or purchase.  We also do sandblasting, custom stained glass for your home, repairs, glass beadmaking and fusing.

Beginner Leaded Window

Choose from a selection of simple patterns for leaded glass windows.  Students will complete the first project in two to three weeks.  This is an example of a beginner leaded window in progress.
