This one-day workshop is designed to let people get a feel for the basic steps of working with stained glass. The day will begin at noon the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, where we will tour the glass on view as part of the special exhibition Dale Chihuly: Magic and Light. Artist Patrick Patterson will provide insights on the artist as well as speak to technical aspects of the glass on view. Then, we will move to Prairie Arts Collective in the Paseo Arts District.
At their studio and gallery, artist/owner Shawn Patterson and assisting co-owner Patrick Patterson will walk students through the creation of a stained glass piece, including selecting glass, grinding, foiling, and soldering. The workshop portion will run roughly from 1 to 4 pm. This is perfect opportunity for people who are interested in stained glass and haven’t had a chance to try it out.
