Brighten up the Winter session in this introductory stained glass suncatcher workshop. Learning to cut glass to a design, grind, foil and solder to make a suncatcher. The instructors will provide pattern choices for the students to select. Supplies included.

Millie Harpell began working with stained glass in the early 1990s. She practiced under the direction of Robina Bagnell and Irene Campbell. Millie’s work includes sun catchers, window valences, small and large panels, simple to complicated lamps and light boxes. Millie finds stained glass very exciting and a rewarding hobby.

Jane MacNeil began taking stained glass classes in the early 1990s when the School of Crafts was located at the Lyceum on George Street. She was very lucky to be mentored by three fantastic instructors: Doug McGillivray, Robina Bagnell and Irene Campbell. Throughout the years Jane has created many stained-glass items such as suncatchers, large panels, and lamps. Her favourite pieces have always been angels. To this day it amazes her what beautiful items can be created with glass if you have patience (sometimes a lot of patience). Stained glass is a great hobby with extremely rewarding results once your work is completed.
