Stained Glass Suncatchers
In this introductory stained glass class you will move through the techniques of selecting and cutting glass, building with copper foil, and soldering. Each student will acquire the basic knowledge of this centuries-old art form and make one suncatcher to bring home. No prior experience necessary; all levels welcome. Students are welcome to bring a work apron and should wear closed toed shoes.
Dayna Sabatino studied stained glass in the Bay Area of California where she worked in all aspects of the industry. Building artworks one piece of beautiful glass at a time was a natural fit for her. Over the years there she taught courses in many techniques of stained glass and mosaic art, built commissioned works on her own and for other artists, and performed restorations, from small lampshades to large church windows. After returning to the East Coast, she landed in Vermont where she married her husband and became a mother. Currently, when not busy working on their homestead, Dayna is creating one-of-a-kind works of glass art, taking commissions, and teaching workshops around New England.
