These workshop sessions will introduce you to everything you need to know about making stained glass windows. You will learn and practice the basic skills of the classic American Tiffany Copper Foil Method. This includes creating and laying out a
pattern, selecting glass, cutting, grinding, soldering, finishing, and framing, with
ample time to perfect each of these skills.

You will leave this experience with an 8”x10” window of up to 16 pieces, framed and ready to hang. Each class will run for about two and a half hours.

All patterns, glass, tools, and additional materials are included in the workshop fees.
You will have a variety of glass patterns to choose from, as well as a large selection
of stained glass.

Your instructor for this course is Grounded Place Artisan, Peter Grandy.  With over 30 years of glass experience, Peter is a patient teacher willing to share all of his tips, techniques, 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 techniques 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).

Workshop Dates/Times

If you are interested in either of these workshops, please email, mentioning which class you’re interested in, and
including your email and phone/text number. Peter will get in touch with you to
discuss dates and times and to answer any questions you might have.

Class size is limited to 3 persons, to allow for personalized attention, and Peter is
open to holding classes for even one or two. You must be 21+ to attend.

All workshops are held at the Grounded Place Studio (4th floor), inside the Holliston
Mill, 24 Water Street, Holliston, MA 01746.
