Lead & Mosaics – During this class, students will have the opportunity to learn two methods of stained glass – lead and/or mosaics.  If you already know these methods you can work on the project of your choice.  This is a great opportunity to make a stained glass “window” using an old window frame by gluing glass pieces directly to the window glass.  If you don’t have a window frame of your own to use, we have them available at the shop for $20.   If you want to learn how to work with lead, students will be making a cabinet door or a stained glass panel in lead.
