Learn the basics of stained glass ornament making in this short 2-3 hour beginners class as you make a seasonal design ornament. Each class will make a different design, check list below. Photos of the different designs will be posted as they become available.
Glass pieces will be precut and edges smoothed so you can jump right in. You will be dealing with fine details and reflective surfaces so be sure to bring your eyeglasses or readers. Class is set up in the morning so students can enjoy a nearby lunch and an afternoon of shopping or hiking in one of our many parks.
