Beginning Stained Glass - $85 December 1st, Tuesdays, 4 weeks, 6
Heads or Tails - $65 December 2nd, Wednesdays, 3 weeks, 6 -
Glass head ends or tails are the rolled glass trimmings from full sheets of
glass when they come off of the annealing lehr. Usually we just cut them off and
relegate them to the scrap bins. But we’ve found artistic ways to use them in
our head glass candle holder and our tail glass jewelry box. The rolled edges
add texture and sophistication to an otherwise predictable glass project.
Embellishing with copper wire, jewels or brass stampings adds a finishing touch.
Two great dimensional projects for the beginner or advanced student that can be
completed in our 3 week class.
