Spend five days with in a stained glass course that will introduce you to all facets of the craft. Combining ancient and modern ways of working with stained glass, you will first develop your own unique design, then using copper foil assembling processes, glass fusing for texture and paints for detail, build your own glass panel. No experience is necessary; the class is open to students of all levels, ages 14 and up. Groups are welcomed. We provide all materials and tools. A broad selection of colorful antique and contemporary colored glass is available, although students are welcome to bring their own.

Invitation: Mary White and I are looking forward to meeting you at Ghost Ranch this summer and making beautiful glass windows with you. Mary and I were instrumental in helping Olive and Dale Smith redesign the new glass studio on “higher ground” after the old studio was destroyed by a flash flood in 2017 and we are both committed to making the revitalized glass program absolutely the best that can be offered. We invite you to join us on a fun and meditative exploration. Making a glass window is a practice who anyone with love of color and light can do! You can enjoy the process if you have not had experience with glass or art, or are a seasoned artist.

Learning Outcomes:
• Participants will be able to create stained panels on their own after completing this course.
• Participants will practice new possibilities and approaches to the stained glass medium.
• Participants can expect attentive and skilled instructors.
• Participants will know how to use all of the materials and tools used to assemble a stained glass window.

Instructor Background: I bring over 45 years of teaching stained glass to you. I had a wonderful opportunity to study in France with Roger Daricarrera, as well as with Judy North (Raffael) in California. I am presently teaching lamp work bead making and fusing in my home studio. Returning to my first love of stained glass was like putting on a pair of comfortable shoes. I am used to classes of 16, teaching beginners as well as advanced students. My gift is that I have not forgotten the “beginners mind.”
