Stained glass is an ancient art which has developed over the centuries. We offer beginner courses in foil stained glass, which covers all aspects of the art form. We start the class with instruction into design, transferring the design to glass and cutting the glass. We explore the different types of glass available and learn how to cut and shape the glass. Next we go into the grinding and foiling of the work and onto the soldering and finally the finishing. In our beginner class everyone completes two pieces and learns the entire process from start to finish.
We bring all the tools and supplies required. Students need to bring a lunch and a desire to work. The beginner class prepares the students to go onto the intermediate class and specialty classes (Christmas, lamps, etc.)
Class size is limited to 12 people. Please call the Gordon Howard Centre at 204-785-2092 to reserve your spot.
You're Invited: If we could create the best centre for aging adults in Manitoba, what would it look like, what would it do, who would it serve? If you've got some ideas about what a new Gordon Howard Centre could do in the future ... then we need you in the room.
