The combination of cut glass arranged to create a picture is one of the defining applications of stained glass. In this class students will utilize a provided pattern to trace, then cut glass of various colors and textures of their choosing. When cutting stained glass it is critical to know how grain and texture can affect how a finished piece of stained glass will look. Because of this, emphasis will focus on deciding what glass is best utilized and how application can give you different effects. Following a brief tutorial, students will use their skills to cut, assemble, then solder the glass to complete a 8” x 8” pictorial sunrise scene using 9 pieces of cut glass. In this class lead came borders will be introduced, a traditional way of assembling stained glass with lead channels! No prerequisites are required but it is suggested that a beginner class be taken before this one.
