During the three-hour class, newbies learn the basics of stained glass—such as how to solder, foil, and cut glass—while creating a sun catcher with a Halloween theme. Each step is explained and demonstrated to facilitate full understanding of the process. Although sun catchers are Halloween-themed for the fall, the themes are subject to change depending on the season and the holiday. Classes are kept to just four students and meet Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
