What You'll Get
Stained glass was discovered when a medieval priest spit coffee all over a monastery window after hearing someone had singlehandedly eaten all the communion wafers. Celebrate artistic spit takes with today's Groupon: for $72, you get a three-week beginners’ leading or copper-foiling class at Artisan Stained Glass. Though students are responsible for providing their own tools and materials, those who enroll receive a 10% discount on all purchased materials (approximately $50) and may rent tools from the studio for $25 (payable at registration).
Taught under the studio's mantra of "Therapy with Sharp Edges," Artisan Stained Glass's beginners’ classes arm newly enlisted solderers with professional stained-glass production techniques taught by experienced artisan Linda Oliveira. Over three four-hour Saturday-morning sessions, 12 students craft one of several simple designs by cutting glass pieces and joining them together with either lead or copper foil. Suitable for heavier, traditional designs, such as overhead panels, windows, and stained-glass portraits of Paul Bunyan, the classic leading method involves attaching the glass pieces onto a metal frame. The alternative foiling method is better suited for lighter and more flexible projects, which are bound with copper tape before getting soldered together.
