Introduction to the Art of Stained Glass
These beginner introduction courses are held one night per week for 6 weeks. Participants should be skilled and confident in using hand tools or similar such devises. During these classes you'll be required to hold glass and handle it and even cut. Hopefully not your finger too. Patience is required in order to execute a suitable finished product
Lead Wrapping - With this method glass is cut and ground to shape using glass cutters, specialized tools and glass grinders. Each piece of glass is then inserted into thin strips of lead which has a channel on both edges. Zinc border channel is placed around the outer edges and the project is then soldered together at the joints with solder and a soldering iron. Putty is added to the gaps between the glass and lead. Moisture is removed from the cement. Chemicals can be added to change the color of the lead.Your final piece is solid, secure and weather resistant
The Lead Project - A leaded panel about 12" x 16". It consists of approximately 44 individual pieces, 24 which you cut and shape yourself plus 20 beveled glass pieces that are already cut to size.
