Stained Glass Windows: Basic to Intermediate Copper Foil Method
We will continue to advance our stained glass skills in this workshop through the making of a small, framed stained glass window. This class is for you if you are a total beginner or if you have even the smallest amount of experience in stained glass and want to practice, refresh your skills or take them to the next level. You will learn pattern work for windows using provided patterns, glass cutting, grinding, copper foil work, soldering and zinc framing. This class will stress the importance of precision in order to create a square window.
Students should wear work clothes and closed toed shoes.
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.
