Join Chris Lyons of Glass Visions for an introduction to the BEAUTY and HISTORY of Stained Glass Art
Humans have produced glass for thousands of years and it's been a main art form for 1200+ years. From the beautiful, colorful and wide scoping lead-came glass construction used in Cathedrals to the amazing Opalescent glass creations produced by Tiffany Studios using the copper-foil technique, the historical significance of glass art is truly amazing.
We'll also provide an overview of the copper-foil technique and you'll get some HANDS-ON TIME to try glass cutting, grinding, foiling and soldering. Come feast your eyes on some great images of glass art and gain a basic understanding of the Stained Glass Art Form and how glass art projects are created. Please join us!

Attending students receive a $10 discount for Glass Visions' 15-hr Beginning Stained Glass class.

120-min TOTAL -- 90-min PowerPoint Presentation + 30-min HANDS-ON
