Then this four-session stained glass workshop will shed some light on the process of stained glass.
Now you can try your hand at making stained glass art in this workshop for beginners. All of the basic
techniques will be covered, from glass cutting, foiling, soldering, and completing with patina and polishing compound. Glass artist Lois Pollock will share her expertise and knowledge, teaching students the skills involved in working safely with stained glass, and creating a beautiful, sturdy piece of art.
