Leaded Stained Glass Class

Leaded Stained Glass construction uses the more traditional method of stain glass assembly in that the pieces of glass are joined with strips of lead came that have been soldered at the intersections. Traditionally leaded stained glass window designs are somewhat simpler in nature when compared to designs for Tiffany stained glass. When given the choice, I tend to prefer the Tiffany or copper-foil method but whenever I do make a leaded window, I enjoy the more physical nature of building. Recently the leaded stained glass class at the studio completed their projects. I have to say that they did a great job and the students in the class enjoyed getting to know each other while working in the studio. Check out their beautiful projects....Robin
