Students will be expected to purchase the cutter and glass for their project. All materials (except already discounted kits) can be purchased at the gallery at a 10% discounted student rate. Classes are small with much individual instruction. Attendance at first class is mandatory.

Lead Technique or Copper Foil Intermediate Class (Thursday Evenings 6:00-9:00-Five Week Class): Intermediate students may work with the copper foil or lead technique. Students new to lead will be taught the lead came method of stained glass. Since a Beginners' Copper Foil class is a prerequisite, this class will focus on the differences in working with lead came. Discussions include safety, types of lead came, prepping and cutting a pattern, grinding, cutting and fitting lead came, soldering, cleaning, and framing. The class cost is $235 which includes instruction, use of tools and grinder, lead, zinc, solder, chemicals, stop blocks, and nails. Students with larger projects will pay a prorated fee for lead. Students will supply the glass for their project, which is available at the gallery.
