Roycroft Campus Artist-in-Residence, Yvonne Stoklosa, will be teaching a two-day workshop on the basic skills needed to make a 10” x 12” stained glass window panel. An introduction and resources will be discussed. Students will learn stained glass using the Tiffany method of construction, including how to select and cut glass, use a grinder to shape pieces, foil, and solder pieces together. They will fit a metal edge on the panel and solder hangers, so each student can hang their creation in a window to enjoy for many years.
Students have options to design and create their own layout of square and rectangular shapes or use the pattern given. A clear textured glass border with metal U shaped edging provides for a professional finished look. All materials and tools needed are provided, including a selection of colorful art glass. Previous experience is helpful, but not necessary. Please bring a brown bag lunch and any coffee/water you may need.
Yvonne Stoklosa’s love of the Arts & Crafts Movement grew strongest when studying for her Masters in Architecture. She also has schooling and experience working as an Interior Designer / Facilities Planner. Combining her creative design skills with her desire to be home for her family, she began doing stained glass work 27 years ago. As a Roycroft Campus artist, she is often reminded of what an architect taught her many years ago – to strive for museum quality.
Yvonne currently has a studio in the Roycroft Print Building where she designs and creates custom work for her clients. She is Chair of the Arts & Craftsmen Guild at Roycroft and actively participates in many of the local and out of state art shows. In addition, The Copper Shop Gallery houses a wonderful selection of her work.
