This is a great workshop series for those interested in learning how to work with stained glass. No prior experience necessary! During this three-part workshop series, you will learn the basic skills of the classic American Tiffany Copper Foil Method. This includes creating your pattern pieces, selecting glass, cutting & grinding, soldering, finishing, and framing. You will leave this experience with an 8x10 glass piece of your unique creation, ready to hang!
All patterns, glass, tools, and additional materials are included in the workshop fee. You will have a variety of beginner glass patterns to choose from (or you can even bring your own). We have a variety of glass to choose from in our stockpile.
Your instructor for this course is Grounded Place Artisan, Peter Grandy. With over 20 years of glass experience, Peter is a patient teacher willing to share all of his tips, technique, and lessons learned over the years.
Class size is limited to 3 to allow for personalized attention. You must be 21+ to attend.
The skills you learn in this workshop series will provide the needed technique to move on to more complex designs. This series is also the pre-requisite for all other Grounded Place Stained Glass Advanced Workshops (e.g., Moravian Stars).
Date & Location
This workshop is a series of three sessions (or equivalent as determined by you and the Instructor). You must attend all three to learn the technique and complete your masterpiece! The class will run at the Grounded Place Studio, 24 Water Street (4th floor), Holliston, MA. Additional information will be emailed to participants prior to the 31st.
