Captured in Glass with Sandi Volpe
Learn the ancient art of stained glass soldering. We will use different size glass with an image or pretty paper, maybe even an old card that has a pattern on it that you like. Each participant will learn how to prepare your glass, foil your pendant, solder with a soldering iron and add a ring to it so that you could hang it from a ribbon to make an ornament or from a ball chain to wear it as a pendant.
You will be able to complete at least one ornament/pendant in class, maybe two. Please feel free to bring any images or paper that you would like to use in your design.
