This course is a continuation of our Intro. to Copper Foil Panels Class and Intro. to Leaded Glass Panels Class. It takes the basic skills learned in the construction of small panels, and incorporates that into constructing a larger project. The cutting, grinding, foiling, leading and soldering skills learned will be expanded upon to construct a more intricate higher level panel. This course will be limited to 5 – 6 students only due to the area needed for the larger projects.
