    Do you have a yearning for learning how to make a stained glass panel? 
At Colors of Glass we offer stained glass instruction for every type of stained glass, including copper foil/solder and lead came.
  This is an art form that dates back hundreds of years, and still inspires people with it's natural beauty. Yes, glass panels created with tiny pieces of foil-wrapped glass can look intimidating, but our Basic Stained Glass Class will make it easy. Colors of Glass will teach you how to create a 10" x 16" inch panel. You will learn how to lay out a pattern, properly cut and shape the glass pieces (we've got bandages just in case...), apply copper foil, solder, frame your panel and add a chain so the only thing you need to do is take it home and hang it in the window. The skills you learn in our Basic Stained Glass Class will enable you to make just about anything your heart desires, from Sun-catchers or Tiffany-style lamps! Our Basic Stained Glass Class is called that because, well, it's basic training! 
  We're trying to make it easier and more convenient for everyone to attend a nine hour class, so we do two four an a half hour classes, in two days time on a Saturday/Saturday, and on occasion we offer night glasses. We try our best to stick to our schedule but sometimes holidays or conflicts will occur. Please contact us for any special scheduling needs, we will be more then happy to accommodate you in any way we can. We are always planning and configuring new advanced classes and welcome your input. 

                                   We are now accepting payments with our online store for class deposits and full payments.

Basic Stained Glass Classes
     Class cost $165.00, all the supplies and tools you will need for your project are included. The only additional purchase you will need to make will be your glass (choose wisely)! We do not want to restrict you in your choice of color or texture so you will have a huge variety of glass to choose from in our retail section and prices do vary, we have a scrap bin to select from and a large choice of bargain priced glass as well. All students must sign a accident waiver and release of liability form, must be at least sixteen years of age and signed for if under the age of eighteen.
   We are excited to have you take the class! And we are confident you will enjoy the lesson and be thrilled with the results of your labor of love. So here's what you need to do.

1. Choose your class
Classes will held on Saturday/Saturday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm.  You can click HERE or come into the store and sign up to reserve your spot for a class and pick up your information packet. A $50.00 nonrefundable deposit will be required at this time.   

2. Choose your pattern
​            (full pattern not shown)



  Seven to ten days prior to the start date of the class you will need to select your pattern, purchase your glass and pay the balance on your class. We have seven 10 X 16 patterns available to choose from and picking your glass could take awhile so give yourself a little extra time. At this time you will also mark your pattern as instructed in your information packet and make a copy on velum paper. We will wrap your glass, and keep it safe until your class meets. This way you won't have to worry about forgetting it or worse - accidentally breaking it! 

3. Show up for class
                Please be on time. It is very important that everyone starts at the same time.
All you need to bring is your desire to learn, and maybe a beverage(with a tight lid). We will have your tools and glass ready for your arrival! Wear comfortable clothing, closed shoes and no hanging jewelry. Silence your cell phone please.
