Stained Glass

5 Wednesdays, February 18 - March 18, 2015, 6:30 to 8:00 pm

Location: Art Building, Room A-124

Instructor: Charles Wydeven

You can make beautiful stained glass windows and sun catchers using a simple stained glass procedure known as lamination. All you have to do is cut, grind, and laminate stained glass pieces onto a clear glass paine. After the glue dries tile grout is added to fill the gaps between the stained glass pieces. The stained glass windows can be framed with silicone adhesive. Bring an old (or new) picture frame with glass in it. The glass will be used for lamination and will be framed after completion. Come to class with some ideas so that you can start your project on the first day.

Fee: $74.00 includes materials ($69 if you register online)
