Just a note at the beginning, this is NOT a workshop on glass painting. This is the original stained glass art where glass sheets are hand cut and soldered with lead and tin to make a piece of art. Tiffany-style lampshades and door and window panels are the best examples of this art form.
In the beginner's workshop of stained glass you will learn basic and advanced (basically all forms) of scoring and cutting glass sheets. For an eg. straight line, curves, triangles, circles, and deeper circular cuts, etc. The next step would be grinding of the glass, then Foiling it and finally soldering it to make a two sun-catchers for your balcony/garden.
Beaded wires and hooks will be provided along with your finished pieces. Although the practice cuts will be done on clear glass, we shall be using ONLY original colored imported glass for your finished piece. Takeaway - 3 finished pieces.
