Stained Glass as a Contemporary Art – G200725

This course will provide the basic techniques of stained glass as well as getting in touch with the artist within you. I will present a slide show on Sunday night that will give you an idea of the mutiple possibilities in which to approach your ideas.
Problem solving and exploration of design and craftsmanship will be covered. How to paint and fuse some of your design will taught on the first day, so that you will have ample time to include them in your finished piece.

You will be encouraged to take advantage of other aspects of Ghost Ranch while you are here, therefore simplifying the scale of your design. I will show you how to cut and solder inner curves for future projects, but please limit them in this piece

Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?
  • Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
