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. There are no hidden fees!

I have a full-time glass business with two studios, one for production and one designed and built specifically for teaching, utilizing 17 salvaged windows. It's bee-utiful, and I'd love to share the art of stained glass and my gorgeous studio with you! My two studios are nestled into my 5 acre property overlooking the Texas Hill Country. Come take a class at River City Glassworks!
