Mosiac classes as well as Copper Foil and Lead Method stained glass classes are available throughout the winter. We've been careful to schedule many different time slots to accomodate your schedule.
In addition to mosiac and stained glass classes, Sam is happy to schedule the following classes on a "As Requested" basis:
Classes are between five and seven weeks long and most of the supplies you need are included in the class fee. There's a $25.00 deposit when you schedule your class and it is fully refundable up to one week prior to the start of the class.
By combining the use of a glass cutting band saw and the copper foil technique, the method most commonly used for smaller works, Sam has taken the art of stained glass to a new and exciting plateau. Evoking such words as, unique, original, creative and yes, even "funky".
Sam's mirrors, picture frames and jewelry, are, from initial conception to completion, one of a kind, handcrafted, functional works of art. Sam's work has been displayed in galleries throughout the United States, including Hawaii, her creations can even be found adorning walls in Europe.
Originally from Amityville, New York, Sam moved to Tennessee in the early seventies. She studied Commercial Art at Watkins and has been working with stained glass since 1987.
