Instructor(s): Lyndon Pullins, Vangie Pullins. Glass artists for 20+ years and instructing since 2004 in their own studio. For years we gave glass instruction in our larger studio and customers included Santa Rosa Junior College, Rohnert Park Community Center, elementary and high school groups, Girl Scout troops and the Petaluma Garden Club, as well as on location at Petaluma Parks & Recreation Center, Sonoma Academy and Mayacama Golf Course and Country Club in Santa Rosa.
You will learn to make stained glass windows using the Tiffany style copper foil technique. These basic skills prepare you for the less forgiving traditional lead came technique. You will select a pattern which you can complete within 5 weeks. Your project may be stored at the studio.
Learn proper pattern layout - choose from our beginner patterns. Paper and pattern supplies are supplied by us.
We provide a plywood workboard for your use in our beginner's class.
Discover why and how to best choose your glasses from a wide palette of clear textures and stained glass manufactured in the U.S. We have blown, hand-rolled and machine made sheet glass and remnants for $5 per pound. Your total cost for glass can be as low as $20.
Learn to score and fit your glass with a lot of personal attention. Remember, our max class size is Five!
Learn to solder lines, not just joints. We start all beginners with foil instead of traditional lead came so you will learn HOW to solder. Useful for many future applications such as boxes, lamps, sun catchers, etc.
You will frame your window with lead came and you will learn how to make and attach hangers to your window. You will need to purchase one 6ft stick of lead came.
Using our supplies, we will show you how to patina your solder lines and finish your window with a professional look.
