Classes at Quinnsgate Studios

Quinnsgate Glassworks offers small, personal classes in the art of stained glass using the copper foil method. Beginner classes include a hands-on introduction to the basic tools and fundamental skills needed to cut, foil, and solder glass. Intermediate and Advanced classes incorporate additional tools and increase design complexity to create three-dimensional glass art objects. All tools, supplies, and basic colors of glass are included in the class fee. Specialty glass may be purchased at a special rate.

Individual Project Mentoring is also available after completion of at least one Quinnsgate Glassworks’ class.
