This class will teach students how to make a leaded glass panel in the Prairie School Style. Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries created a uniquely American style of stained glass and were highly inventive with how they integrated glass in their buildings, furniture and lighting. Students will look at these applications and then choose a design set to their interest and skill level. Class members will take away an understanding of design and fabrication necessary to build their own windows, through detailed demonstrations of essential techniques. Hand tools, strip cutting, glass selection and finishing techniques will be explored. If you’ve ever wanted to include leaded glass in your woodworking or just make windows to hide those pesky neighbor’s satellite dishes, this class is for you! This workshop is for students at any level.
