What you'll do

We'll start the beginner copper foil class with an overview of safety precautions and learning about the tools of the trade. You'll learn to cut glass using a pistol-grip cutter, running pliers, and grozing pliers. Once you feel comfortable cutting the clear practice glass, we'll move on to the main project.

You will be given a pattern for a simple, five-piece suncatcher. You even get to choose your glass from my extensive selection! Expect to spend 3-4 hours in this class, as you progress from being a beginner to having a completed piece to display proudly.

The cost of the class includes all tools and materials.

Booked this experience as a birthday gift for my dad and my parents LOVED this! They’ve told all of their friends about their time with Kathryn and their sun catchers display proudly in their home.

I enjoyed this experience so much. Kathryn was a great instructor. Never did I feel intimidated as a newbie. I wish I lived closer so I could create more pieces at her place!!

Our kids - 15 and 17, had a wonderful afternoon learning the stained glass technique while chatting with Mrs. Kathryn on a wide variety of topics. They loved this experience! and we as parents were happy to offer them a fun, safe and rewarding activity. Nuestros hijos (15 y 17), pasaron una tarde maravillosa aprendiendo la técnica del vitral mientras charlaban con la Sra. Kathryn sobre una amplia variedad de temas. ¡Les encantó esta experiencia! y nosotros como padres quedamos felices de poder ofrecerles una actividad divertida, segura y gratificante.
