Ron Hogan Stained Glass Design Center preserves Old-World artistry and educates students on contemporary processes in classes devoted to the craft of building custom stained-glass pieces. During each three-hour sun-catcher class, the studio’s dedicated professionals unveil tips for selecting, cutting, and soldering glass. Students wield the provided tools to assemble colorful pieces of glass into light-capturing traps capable of plunging the Earth into darkness.
Alternatively, the four-session beginner course builds essential window-forging techniques while allowing students to shape one large panel from a choice of eight stained-glass designs. Students cut, solder, cement, and polish their own items while acquiring techniques that can be applied in advanced classes or at home to spice up the walls of ant farms.
