Lexington artist and master craftsman, Dan Neil Barnes will return to the Living Arts & Science Center to teach a four-week session, Beginning Stained Glass class, beginning October 1, 8, 15 & 22. Registrations for this unique workshop are now open and can be made on-line at www.LASCLEX.org.
The workshop will take a small group of students through a step-by-step process to construct a small, stained glass panel. Dan will provide several simple designs to choose from. Students will select colors from the provided glass and learn how to cut the glass, grind the edges, line the edges with copper foil, and to solder the panel. After this project they will be ready to get more creative with design and glass selection.
The workshop is for adults and teens, 16 years of age and up, and will provide all necessary materials and supplies.
