Learn the magic of painting with light through stained glass. Students will learn the basics of stained glass in this hands-on workshop. Techniques being taught include: cutting, grinding, foiling, assembling, soldering, finishing, and the proper safety steps to take along the way. Students will have 3 pre-drawn designs to choose from and leave at the end of class with a finished 8" x 10" stained glass panel. All levels are welcome, no experience required, all materials included. (Photo is an example and not indicative of the provided pattern).
Since 2016 Erin Murdock has been working under the moniker “SNIPGLASS.” Preferring a bright and saturated palette, imagery in her work is often inspired by psychedelia and late twentieth-century animation. Her interest in stained glass was first made possible through Judith Schaechter, from whom she learned the craft. Murdock received a BFA in Craft + Material Studies from University of the Arts. In the summer of 2017, she was a Teaching Assistant for Cappy Thompson & Dick Weiss' "High Test: Paint & Lead" class at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA. Murdock’s current focus "behind the scenes" is to make stained glass education more accessible. She is working on securing & establishing a stained glass education center within the next 10 years.
