Glass Class: Leaded Stained Glass Window
Tuesdays, September 6, 13 & 27; October 4 & 18; and November 1: 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Stained glass art has been around since the pharos, incorporated into windows first by the Romans, and used in brilliant lamps by Tiffany and others. This six-week class teaches students how to use simple techniques to build magnificent leaded stained glass windows. Registration covers basic supplies to build an introductory piece and use of glass tools. Students will purchase additional supplies when necessary. The introductory window will be built during the first two weeks whereas the remaining four will allow students to design and build a custom one-of-a-kind piece of stained glass art. All students are requested to bring on the first day of class their own safety glasses, a Sharpie marker, X-acto knife, and ruler.

Chestnut’s Glass Class Teacher Scott Hebbring will be monitoring these Open Studio sessions. Some experience is recommended, as this is not an instructional course. Scott is a great resource, and he is there to assist participants as they work on their own projects. Complete unfinished projects or start new ones. Scott has project ‘ideas’ students can probably do in one night if they choose. Some tools and a grinder will be provided.
Participants need to obtain their own supplies. Once registered, you may attend as few or as many of these 3-hour sessions as you want. Bring to your first session your tools and glass (some glass available for purchase).
