Figure, Flora, Fauna

August 2nd - August 6th

Participants will explore painted imagery techniques in glass through the designing and crafting of a stained glass work. Topics covered in the course include: image selection, design and layout, painting preparation, vitreous enamels and silver stain processes, kiln firing techniques for painted components, and copper foil and lead came fabrication.

This project allows participants to select their own subject matter, as they are guided in seeing it realized in a leaded glass creation. All levels welcome, as this process is scalable to your current level of proficiency. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. Our top priority is keeping our community safe. At UrbanGlass, masks are still required for all ages 2 and older (we recommend a KN95 or KF94 mask). Temperature checks continue at the security desk when entering through the Rockwell entrance. We ask that if you were recently directly exposed to COVID-19 and are awaiting test results that you do not come to class, and we will work with you to find another class placement or refund you the class fee. Current policies are subject to change based on additional information, including the city's new alert levels page.
