GOOD NEWS, LEAD, FUSION AND MOSAIC CLASSES ARE BACK!

Studio du Verre
 offers a full range of stained glass classes of between 5 to 6 students where you may learn the different methods of doing stained glass. We have classes for beginner's copper foil, lead came, glass fusion, and also a mosaics class. The recently added combination class teaching lead came and painting on glass is full but April dates will be added soon. More advanced techniques can be learned in a private tutoring class, which can be adapted to each student's specific needs.

SATURDAY from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm​​​​

  • February 10 & 17 

  • March 30 & April 6    New Dates

PLEASE NOTE : There is a growing demand for lead classes. Leaded windows are the traditional method and, to some purist craftsmen, it's the only legitimate way to create stained glass. This is the only method our studio uses in its own creations and to restore old projects.

In this course, you will learn how to assemble a panel using lead came and how to solder and clean your panel like a professional.

FUSION AND SLUMPING WEEKEND

SATURDAY 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and

SUNDAY - 11:00 am to 1:00 pm​​​​

  •  Dates TBA   

Glass slumping is when art glass is placed over a glass mold and placed in a kiln. When the temperature is hot enough, the glass will soften and then 'slump' into the mold. Choosing from a variety of molds - bowls, square dishes, sushi dishware etc - students will design their project.  After adding cut glass choices, glass frit, and stringer embellishments, students will prep the piece for a flat firing. Day 1 ends with pieces being placed in the kiln for firing overnight. On Day 2, students excitedly remove creations from the kiln.  There follows a discussion of how and why the glass fired as it did.  Day 2 ends with glass pieces being placed on their respective molds and set in the kiln for the final slumping firing. Finished pieces can be picked up at our studios the following week or be sent by parcel post for those students who have come some distance for this class.
