Skills you’ll learn:
glass cutting, soldering, copper foiling
Capture the sun’s beautiful rays with a handmade sun catcher! Participants will use reclaimed bits of glass to compose a custom design. Theresa, Perennial’s Lead Instructor + Craftswoman, will demonstrate how to safely use a glass cutter and grinder to create custom shapes from reclaimed glass. Participants will learn how to use copper foil, flux, and lead-free solder to assemble their colorful, textured glass pieces.
Note: This class requires hand strength and the use of a very hot tool. Patience, an eye for safety, and hand dexterity will help participants achieve their design goals.
