Prerequisite: Stained Glass I: Basic Lead Techniques

In this class you will learn the importance of design and creating stability in the construction of a larger window. We will cover the difference between lead and zinc, and discuss the sizes and strengths needed for projects. The window from your first class was just a starting point for what you are able to learn and build. Before the workshop, Lenneke will consult with you on your project, offer advice on the design, and help you purchase your glass.
