Stained glass windows adorn structures across the globe, activated by light to reveal dazzling narratives. Students will explore the connection between color and light through the Tiffany copper foil method. Camp will cover the fundamentals of stained glass construction, including drawing a design, selecting color palettes, cutting sheet glass, sanding with grinders, and soldering with copper foil to assemble designs. From geometric patterns to elaborate imagery, students will take inspiration from history and personal experience to tell their own stories in glass.
No experience necessary. Open to all rising and current high school students.
