As COVID -19 is still not under control and very contagious (especially in groups), I will not be teaching in-person classes in September and will decide on a month by month basis when to start these back up. Instead I have started a YouTube channel called "Great Glass Galore" and am in the process of downloading instructional videos. These videos will be available after Labor Day 2020. Most likely there will be a fee to access the videos and a separate fee for "Zoom" time instruction with me. Watch for emails on access to the videos and "Zoom" instruction time.
I have updated my beginner stained glass class videos to show every step of making an 11x14" project of fifteen pieces. This detailed 7 part series covers working with a pattern, jig making, cutting, foiling, solder, framing, patinaing and cleaning. Students can watch the videos and work on the projects themselves, or join Zoom meetings once a week with me to get help. This means students will need to have all the tools and materials to work from home. I provide a list of tools and materials needed to complete the project. Students can purchase both from me or independently.
Beginner Pattern - Beginner Project Example
I know this class is more fun under a studio setting, where the student has access to all my glass decorations, but that will have to wait until COVID is under control. Meanwhile, beginners can watch the beginner fusing video on YouTube. Then come in and select glass and decorations for a project, or they can tell me what size and color project they would like to do, and I will supply the glass and some decorations for a set fee based on the size of the project (7" candy dish, 8-12" square slumper or 6x13" platter). The student takes the materials home, glues up the project, and brings it back to me for firing.
Private lessons will be available after Labor Day for 1 person or 2 people from the same household. Students will be confined to the first table and straight edge cutting table as you walk into my studio. Cost is $36/hour for 1 person or $48 for 2. All students must wear a mask and hand sanitize before coming in. Instructor will also be wearing a mask.
