In this workshop with Lauren Earl of Szklo Glass, you will learn how to create a stained glass wall hanging using the traditional techniques of a leaded window. We will be using pink champagne + seafoam green colored glass and for the first time, mirror! Making it beautiful and functional. By the end, you will be able to take home your very own glass creation + learn some of the knowledge and skills it takes to create a beautiful stained glass piece.
-All supplies are included during the workshop + no prior experience is needed.
-You will be working with lead materials. Is this dangerous? Lead is only harmful if ingested, so proper precautions will be taught during the course to make it very safe!

A little bit about the Artist:
Lauren is a stained glass artist based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. She began working in the glass field 15 years ago but years after leaving her job and three kids later, she had an itch to start creating with glass again. She began playing with geometric designs and transforming them into wall hangings. In 2016, Lauren named her hobby turned small business Szklo Glass after her Polish heritage. Now you can find Lauren expanding her stained glass creations into mirrors and functional pieces.
