In this class, Chelsea Brewer of Brewer & Marr Glassworks will guide you through the basics of the copper foil method in order to create a beautiful stained glass sun catcher! For this class, you will choose a cactus and succulent-inspired design from the three shown in the photos above, which are Opuntia (Prickly Pear), Saguaro, and Agave. Each student will select a pattern and custom color combination for their piece. Chelsea will show how to wrap each glass piece with foil, solder them together, then add a black, copper, or silver patina to create a custom finish to the glass edges. After giving it a wax polish, each stained glass piece will be finished by adding a hoop and a leather lace strip! Students will leave with their very own stained glass sun catcher to hang, as well as a new appreciation for the stained glass craft!
None. All patterns, glass, and other supplies and equipment are provided. Each piece will measure around 4" X 4".
Please Note: We will be handling sharp objects, HOT irons to liquefy solder, as well as various chemicals. For your protection aprons, oven mitts, latex gloves, respirators, goggles, & first aid kit will be provided.
