There will be patterns and glass & tools and equipment available for use, but crafters are encouraged to bring their own tools, solder, black backed copper foil or other, and stained glass.

UTC AE has some glass of assorted colors, but it isn't a huge selection and there aren't a lot of larger pieces. So if you have colors in mind, you should bring that color glass with you.

Heather will be on hand to offer assistance, answer any questions, and share techniques.  

Bring a bag lunch, snack and/or beverage and enjoy the workshop. We look forward to meeting you and seeing the stained glass art you create.
