STAINED GLASS
BASIC TRAINING
It's an art form that dates back hundreds of years, and still inspires people with it's beauty. Sure, windows created with tiny pieces of foil-wrapped glass look intimidating, but our stained glass boot camp will take that intimidation and throw it out the window. Rainbow's new Basic Training instructor John Walker will teach you how to create a 10'" x 16" inch panel. You will learn to lay out a pattern, cut glass (we've got bandages just in case...), foil, solder, and finish off your project. The skills you learn in our Basic Training Class will enable you to make just about anything your heart desires, including those awe-inspiring church windows or Tiffany-style lamps!

Our basic training class is called that because, well, it's basic training! We're trying to make it easier and more convienent for everyone to attend class, so our Saturday classes are now 4 hours long, and spread out over two weekends. Saturday classes will be offered from 9:00 - 1:00, and our Monday/Tuesday classes will remain 5:00 - 9:00.

Generally, our Basic Training Classes are held the first two Saturdays of the month, and the first Monday & Tuesday. We try our best to stick to this, but sometimes holidays or scheduling conflicts will occur. Be sure to note the date and time of the class you are enrolling in, in case we needed to stray from that guideline.

We've also revamped the price structure to reflect the class changes! Class will now cost $150, and include all the supplies and tools you will need for your project. The only additional purchase you will need to make will be your glass!

For a complete list of current offerings, search for "A Basic Training Stained Glass Class" in the shopping area toward the bottom of this page.
Ok. I want to sign up. What do I do next?
Fantastic! We're happy to have you take the class! We are confident you will love the class, and be thrilled with how your project turns out. So here's what you need to do:

1. Choose your class.
At the bottom of this page, you'll find our online shopping cart. Simply search for "Stained Glass Basic Training" in the Search box, or choose Stained Glass Classes from the categories drop down menu. All available basic training classes will be listed within the drop-down menu.


2. Choose your pattern.
We have about 15 patterns available for class. When you select your pattern, you are more than welcome to
come in and use our computer to help select the glass for your piece. That leads us to the next step...

3.  Choose your glass.
We suggest you come in about a week before the start of your basic training class to choose your glass. We offer
our customers the ability to see what their pattern will look like in full color, without having to color
the entire pattern by hand. Our Rapid Resize program will let you select different glass types (Baroque,
wispy, cathedral, etc.) and colors. From there, we can help you select the glass for your project. We'll
wrap it, and store it in our classroom until your class meets. This way, you won't have to worry about
traveling with the glass or worse - accidentally breaking it!
All patterns are approximately 10" x 16".
4. Show up for class.
All you need to bring is your desire to learn, and maybe a snack or lunch (if you're signed up for the One Day Class). We'll have your tools and glass ready for your arrival!

If you enjoy your Basic Training Class and want to continue making stained glass at home, we have tool kits available to purchase. Click the link to the right for additional information and details
about the Tool Kits.
