WCU to offer stained glass courseWritten by Admin
Western Carolina University will offer a course on creating stained glass from 6-9 p.m. Thursdays from March 8 through April 12 in the Cordelia Camp Building’s south lobby.
Course instructor Moya O’Neal is an active member of the International Guild of Glass Artists and has worked with stained glass for more than 20 years. O’Neal teaches the “Tiffany method” of stained glass where each piece of glass is wrapped in copper foils and then soldered.
Students will learn important safety precautions, proper cutting techniques, foiling methods, soldering techniques and simple metal framing.
The cost for the course is $85, and registration is required. Students will be required to bring safety glasses, pens, pencils, a felt-tipped pen, paper for notes, 12-inch-by-12-inch box to carry glass, adhesive bandages and cotton garden gloves. Other tools will be provided.
