Lead came (lead channel) construction is ideal for traditional or geometric panels, bevel panels, and large architectural construction, but it is very 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 two day class.
Topics include helpful tips for cutting glass specifically for lead came projects; making & using piece patterns; assembly and cleanup techniques. Students will choose a pattern from a group selected by the instructor for this class.
Some previous glass cutting and soldering experience is recommended, but not required. All tools are provided, or you may bring your own glass tools to class. Please enroll at least 10 days before class. You will be able to pre-select your pattern, and pre-order any bevels you will need for class.
