Introduction to Stained Glass
Discover the art of stained glass. In this intro class we will move through the techniques of selecting and cutting glass, learning the copper foil method, and soldering. Participants will create their own colorful glass suncatcher and leave with a basic knowledge of the stained glass process. A selection of nature-based patterns (flowers, garden herbs, feathers, etc.) will be provided along with a variety of beautiful colored glass to choose from. No previous experience necessary.
Participants should wear closed toe shoes and work clothes.
Dayna Sabatino studied stained glass in the Bay Area of California where she worked in all aspects of the industry. Building artworks one piece of beautiful glass at a time was a natural fit for her. Over the years there she taught courses in many techniques of stained glass and mosaic art, built commissioned works on her own and for other artists, and performed restorations, from small lampshades to large church windows. After returning to the East Coast, she landed in Vermont where she married her husband and became a mother. Currently, when not busy working on their homestead, Dayna is creating one-of-a-kind works of glass art, taking commissions, and teaching workshops around New England.
