Stained Glass


1:00 pm – 3:00 pm


6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Instructor: Phoebe Katzin

This eight-week class will focus on the copper foil method of stained glass. Students will learn how to cut glass and, using a grinder, assemble a design. Once the glass is cut and ground to fit, you will learn how to apply copper foil around the edges. Finally, students will learn how to solder and use a zinc came to finish the edges and add hanging rings and patina their pieces. This class requires your own tools. The Studio has limited communal-sets of some tools that you can borrow during the class. Please see materials list for more info.
