This class will be a hands-on, in-depth exploration of the techniques used to create leaded art glass, with an emphasis on the American School of Leaded Glass, whose beginnings trace back to John LaFarge, circa 1870, in Boston, MA. Students will be pushed way beyond what is typically thought of as “stained glass.” Included will be an introduction to proper tools and their use, glass selection, and the artful use of colored-opaque glass, glass cutting, copper foil construction, soldering a copper foil panel, and the design and production of original designs. Students will also explore the secrets and techniques of Greene & Greene style leaded glass.
Throughout the week, there will be lots of hands-on practice that will help everyone learn the fundamental techniques that will lead to creating highly detailed and unique work and will enable anyone who attends to pursue adding leaded art glass to their fine woodworking. Each student will make an original art glass panel designed by John specifically for this class. This is a rare and special opportunity to learn this uniquely American style from a master craftsman in the medium of fine leaded art glass.
