Glass Arts Studio

Stained Glass


Build confidence by learning and gaining a good understanding of the copper foil technique for stained glass. Learning starts with hand-cutting clear glass in straight lines, using copper tape and then soldering shapes together. By the end of the week, you'll be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to fine tune your glass pieces to make a perfect fit. 

Projects can range from a 10-square design with clear glass for beginners and then progress to more intricate patterns using a range of colored glass. Experienced students can suggest their own project design.


  • For students ages 10-14.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 31.
  • A $30 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all needed materials.
  • Wear close-toed shoes and long pants in the Glass Studio at all times.

Registering Youth

  • New registrants: When you register, select Others Only in the "Who Are You Registering?" section. On the next page, Add New Registrant. Create an account for your child. The email address on their account must be unique. 
    •  The next time you register your child, you will be able to Search Registrants to select them.
  • Complete and return this minor permission form.
  • You may register your youth  for an optional supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.


After completing a 10-square pyramid with copper foil, students will advance to create a heart or star in stained glass and finish the week with a small panel to hang in a window or on a stand.

Students with previous glass cutting and stained glass experience may choose a more complicated pattern with the instructor’s approval. The instructor’s focus is on your completion of a nice-looking project rather than the project's complexity.
