Stained Glass Classes
The art of stained glass has been around since the Egyptians ruled all of the known world. Early examples of stained glass in windows and amulets, dating back to the seventh century and beyond, have been found in churches and monasteries all over Europe, Where they were used to teach the predominately illiterate agrarian population Biblical stories.
The creation of stained glass art requires creativity in order to imagine the design. You will also need a bit of engineering skills to know how to assemble the pieces. If it’s a window you desire, it must fit very snug in the space it will be installed in. The window must be strong enough to withstand rain and wind. When you create a stained glass window at The South Street Gallery, you can rest assured your window will be both professional and beautiful.
South St Gallery has the school to go to for stained glass classes in Southern Ohio. We conduct stained glass lessons, as well as stained glass workshops for adults of all ages and skill levels. We offer a great schedule and the best rates for our classes.
Creating your own stained glass piece is a rewarding accomplishment. And with our workshops, which are administered by our professional, reliable stained glass instructor, you will see the objet d’art in your imagination become a reality. Once you have the design in mind, you will be shown how to select and cut the glass. Fitting and assembling the pieces comes next. Once the glass is cut and shaped, the pieces will be assembled using lead "came" or the Tiffany method of assembly. Joints are then soldered. A few more simple steps and, Voila! Your masterpiece is complete.
We are a reputable glass art studio, and house a wonderful gallery, where you can lose yourself in all of the objects of art on display.
Please come by. We’d love to see you!
