Classes & Workshops
Thank you for your interest in taking our stained glass classes, please check the calendar for 2016 class schedule. Classes Subject to Change. Call for details.
Build your own stained glass panel during this introductory 14hr two day class. Tools and materials are an estimated $250 extra (Contact Jimenez Stained Glass for a tool & supply list). When class is finished, students will have the necessary skills and materials to continue the craft at home.
There are two ways to make stained glass, leaded or copper foiled. The major difference between the two is in the construction. With leaded stained glass, the construction must begin at an outer corner, the individual pieces are fitted into lead came. Once all pieces are cut and placed in lead came, the joints of the came are soldered. Then the completed piece is cemented. With foiled stained glass, the construction can begin at any point in the design and worked out from there. The individual pieces are wrapped in copper foil and soldered together.
Due to the extra steps of constructing leaded panels, many students choose to start with the foiled technique first. Both techniques are offered to beginning students.
