Learn copper foil technique to create dazzling stained glass pieces that sparkle in the sun! 

About this Class

Build confidence by learning and gaining a good understanding of the copper foil technique for stained glass. Learning starts with hand-cutting clear glass in straight lines, using copper tape and then soldering shapes together. By the end of the week, you'll be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to fine tune your glass pieces to make a perfect fit. 

Projects can range from a 10-square design with clear glass for beginners and then progress to more intricate patterns using a range of colored glass. Experienced students can suggest their own project design.


  • For students ages 10-14.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 31.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to that email address.
  • Complete and return this minor permission form.
  • You may register your youth for an optional supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.

  • A $30 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all needed materials.
  • Wear close-toed shoes and long pants in the Glass Studio at all times.


After completing a 10-square pyramid with copper foil, students will advance to create a heart or star in stained glass and finish the week with a small panel to hang in a window or on a stand.

Students with previous glass cutting and stained glass experience may choose a more complicated pattern with the instructor’s approval. The instructor’s focus is on your completion of a nice-looking project rather than the project's complexity.
