Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this stained glass class:

Stained Glass is one of the most unchanged crafts in the world. The process and techniques you will learn in this workshop are centuries old, but the design you create will be one-of-a-kind. It will live in your home as a monument to your creative super powers!

This workshop is for anyone, from beginners to experienced artisans, who desires to dabble in small form sculpture, glass, color, and line design.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of Stained Glass as you create a work of colored glass art.

We will teach you the entire Tiffany stained glass process – from selecting and shaping each glass element to soldering it all together.

This 4-hour workshop requires no prior experience and will cover a variety of techniques and tricks to understanding the timeless art of glass. You’ll leave this workshop with a beautiful and unique stained glass piece that you designed and built.

Come to class with an idea of what you might want to make – a sun catcher, an ornament, or a nightlight. You are encouraged (but not required) to bring some design ideas for the workshop. Your design should be around the size of your hand and consist of 8 pieces or less. 

What You’ll Be Making: A beautiful piece of stained glass art.

What’s You’ll Be Doing: Cutting and shaping glass, then soldering the pieces together to create the finished product.

Skill Level: Beginner - no previous experience is required.

    I had a very negative experience in this class. Perhaps I should have done more research before the class as I had absolutely no idea how complicated the process would be. Also expected much more guidance and explanation. There were too many people in the class and it should have been divided into two classes to give us some more understanding of what kind of designs would be possible in the medium. We could have done one whole class learning how to come up with appropriate designs and how to cut the glass and use the tools instead of trying to complete a finished product in the allotted time. This class did not take into account different learning styles and was too difficult to be considered Stained Glass 101. I ended up so depressed I left halfway through. I’ve taken ceramics classes, a block printing workshop, and learned how to solder, so didn’t expect to have such a frustrating experience with this medium. If this were a true beginners class it should have been much more simplified instead of racing us through each process. Telling us beforehand that our design should be as big as a hand and could have eight pieces was also misleading for absolute novices. We could have been better prepared by being told that the process was more like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. This would have been a more accurate way to prepare us beforehand. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

    I enjoyed the stain glass work of art class. The amount of people in the class made me feel welcome. There were four other people in the class. So I received good one on one help. The teacher was kind & patient with me. Working with my hands to bring a work of art to life was great. I would take this class again. The studio was neat, clean, & arranged well. Job well done Craftsman.

    Very basic knowledge of making stained glass work, they only taught you how to do it, not how to do it well. More than 5 people attended.

    Great intro class! I'm a Graphic Designer and try to take a lot of different 'hands-on' classes to learn new hobbies and get away from the computer screen. Kelsie was a great instructor, taught us a ton in the amount of time we had, and answered all the questions I threw at her (which was probably a lot). I had such a great experience that I ended up buying my own equipment to continue practicing at home. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in learning the process of Stained Glass and glass as a medium.

    I took this class with my cousin and it was really fun, the studio had a chill vibe. The class was small enough that you can freely talk to the instructor. We actually made a whole piece of art which was cool and all the equipment and all the necessary tools were provided. We had a super chill instructor who was helpful and also not super strict about little things so we had a certain amount of artistic and technical leeway. I'm actually planning on going back for some other classes at the studio because I really liked the vibe and the people.

    The stained glass workshop for beginners was EXCELLENT!. The hands on learning experience revealed the artistry, creativity, and incredible skill associated with this art form. Kelsie was a superb teacher knowing when to pull the group together for a demonstration lesson, when to leave the group time for independent work, and when to offer her guidance in a time of need/advice. Her pleasant, encouraging, and kind demeanor is an essential characteristic for others to feel welcomed and vulnerable in a new learning experience. Her interactions were truly genuine.

    This was a fantastic class that did a great job breaking the stained glass process into very manageable steps. The teacher was very approachable, and did a great job helping with our initial designs. I was pretty intimidated going into it, but by the end, I wished I had gone with a more complicated design because it was much easier than I thought. I went with my wife and parents and we had a great time, walking away with finished pieces to be proud of.
