G-105: TRADITIONAL STAINED GLASS
Lead came (lead channel) construction is ideal for traditional or geometric panels, bevel panels, and large architectural construction, but it can be challenging to learn, because it is so different from copper foil work. Using simplified techniques, artist and instructor George Ayars will guide you through the process, teaching you how to create beautiful lead came work, in this five-week class. Topics include helpful tips for cutting glassspecificallyfor lead came projects; making & using piece patterns; assembly, cementing, and cleanup techniques. Students will choose a pattern from a group selected by the instructor for this class. Some previous glass cutting and soldering experienceis recommended, but not required. All tools are provided, or you may bring your own glass tools to class.
