Choosing how to cut and arrange glass is important because grain and texture can affect how a finished piece of stained glass will look once assembled! This class will focus on cutting glass into various shapes and how to use textures and glass grain to your advantage. Students will choose and cut their own glass using a provided template. In a step by step process various techniques will be utilized to cut glass into shapes such as compound and convex curves, including circles!
