Exciting Up Coming McMow Classes

Beginner's Lead Came Class
Saturday, September 10th - 9:00-3:00
In the Beginner's Lead Came class, students will learn how to assemble a stained glass window, using the tried and true Lead Came method. Using Lead Came, as opposed to the copper foil method, has been prevalent in Europe for centuries to construct world famous pieces like those found in Canterbury Cathedral. Now, come and celebrate that very art at McMow by learning the basics of how it was done.

The class will cost $130, and includes glass, the pattern, lead came, solder, flux, cement, and wood molding for set up. The class will require a soldering iron and stand, lead dykes, glazing hammer, 2 small hand brushes, lathekin, lead nails, wire brush, Pro Lead Knife, and a small household hammer. If you are missing any of the required material, McMow will be selling them at 15% off if you are taking the class (with the exception of the small household hammer).

Beginning Glass Beadmaking

Saturdays starting in September - November from 10am to 3pm
(with a 30 minute lunch break)

Taught by Special Guest Artist Cou
rtney Tavares

You can learn the exciting craft of creating glass beads and pendants. Beads such as these are in high demand due, in part, to their lovely visual appeal. This type of beadmaking is also incredibly unique. Each and every bead has it's own little flare, that can never be reproduced. Students will walk away with their own beads, infused with the individual artistic flare of the person that created it!

The class will cost $275 and includes ALL materials, each person will leave class with beads they made. You must be paid in full to reserve your slot.

Fusing I
Saturday, August 27th from 9am to 3pm

In this class you will learn how to create you own fused glass creation. The art of fusing glass is a highly personal function. Fusing of all levels can be applied to the same piece in an effort to create something that speaks to you. This class will instruct its students in the process that takes place in creating these one-of-a-kind sculptures. It will cover everything from basic kiln operation, elementary fusing terms, and forming your glass. You will also be working with frit and stringers to add flare to your pieces. This is a "Make it and Take it" class and students will be making 3 to 4 fused glass tiles.

All materials are included in the $130, and it happens to be one of McMow's most popular classes. Make sure to call ahead and reserve your spot as quickly as possible.
