Arrangements and Alignment (Light work level)
Details - Precision is very important when working any project that requires many pieces that need to be repeated then fitted together. This is especially the case when a project needs to fall within a set parameter. This class will cover the methods of cutting glass and how to properly measure, arrange, and adjust each piece to create a 3-D sculpture using stained glass! This method of creating 3-D objects out of stained glass is a relatively new innovation arising in the 19 century when the copper foil method first came about.
