The UTC Adult Ed Stained Glass "Intermediate" is an open-studio type class for stained class crafters who wish to work on personal stained glass projects. Heather Burgess will not be providing any formal teaching to the intermediate class.

If there is a pattern you wish to try, reach out to Heather (maineglasslady@gmail.com

Please note that Heather will be teaching a Stained Glass for Beginners class during the open-studio style intermediate stained glass crafters class. Her focus will be on the Beginners class but she will answer questions and such if able. 

There will be patterns and glass & tools and equipment available for use, but crafters are encouraged to bring their own tools, solder, black backed copper foil or other, and stained glass. UTC AE has some glass of assorted colors, but it isn't a huge selection and there aren't a lot of larger pieces. So if you have colors in mind, you should bring that color glass with you.

We thank all of you in advance for bringing your own things. Because you do, we can keep the cost to attend this class opportunity at a lower price.
