What you'll do

Experience the age old art of Stained Glass.

You will enter an atmosphere of creative work in a glass artists studio. Your mentor will guide you in the design and building of ONE of two choices (please indicate which you'd prefer):

1) TEA LANTERN: You will create four unique glass panels to fit into your lantern (black or white, indoor/outdoor). Once the panels are complete they will be inserted into the lantern and Voila! Let your light shine!

OR

2) SNOWFLAKE SUN CATCHER: Using pre-cut bevels, you will apply copper foil edging and then solder the sections together to form a beautiful snowflake sun catcher. Display it in a window with the sunlight filtering through, or hang it on your tree at Christmas!

All instructions and materials are supplied. No experience necessary!
Other things to note
Bring your camera in order take pictures of different steps of your work and wear casual clothes (closed toe shoes), since it's manual work.

Supporting the arts in a non-profit environment has been my dream retirement.

In 2017, with the support of our community I formed Priests Mill Arts Centre as a space for the display and teaching of all arts.

Through our glass experience program, I hope to pass on my passion for beauty to the next generation. http://priestsmill.com/

We had a great time learning how to make our stained glass lanterns. Our instructors name has slipped my mind but she was amazing. Thorough explanation and had a great time personalizing our windows. I would definitely refer to friends and hope to be back again. Excellent value for what you pay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stained glass experience. Kristen was friendly and very knowledgeable. She was very attentive and helpful and with Natasha’s help, guided us to get our project completed. We were a group of 4 friends and it was a wonderful easy to spend our afternoon.

Loved, loved, loved my experience with Eric and Chloe! Such a warm and welcoming environment. I was so proud of what I created...kind of how you felt as a child when you brought home an art project from elementary school that you thought was SO beautiful😊 As Arnold would say...”I’ll be back”!!

This was so much fun creating and learning how to do stained glass. This was the first class and thought it went very well. I wish I lived closer would love to do more. We were from out of town. It was a great night and reasonably priced.
