Stained Glass Classes

Have you always wanted to learn how to do stained glass?

Join Barney for a stimulating two-day course in stained glass. You will learn to:

  • create an original design
  • cut all types of stained glass easily, using basic hand tools
  • grind each piece to fit like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle
  • apply copper foil
  • solder beautifully
  • make a mitered metal frame and attach hangers
  • apply patina and polish your piece to a professional finish

You will create and complete your own original stained glass panel in this informative class. Class size is one to four students, so you always receive plenty of individual attention as you progress.


The basic course fee includes all your materials and use of our tools, with the exception of the glass you will choose for your project. Glass selection is part of the creative process and therefore left to each student's choice. We have an extensive inventory here in the studio and you will be sure to find the perfect glass. You receive a 10% discount on all materials purchased during class, and glass is usually $15 - 40, depending upon the size of your panel.

We also offer advanced classes for those who already have a basic knowledge of stained glass and wish to focus on a particular aspect. Our workshop format provides tutorial instruction on everything from perfecting solder technique to lead construction and rebar. Use of our studio equipment is included in the class fee; all materials are additional.

In order to offer the two day class to out-of-town visitors, we offer accommodations on-site, at Chestnut Cove B&B. Not only will you experience an entertaining class, you will delight in our delicious food, warm hospitality and the ambience of a lovely waterfront setting.
Breakfast and lunch are included in the room rates. Any guest not participating in the class is welcome to join us for breakfast and lunch.
Rivah Room - french doors lead directly from the Rivah Room onto the waterfront deck overlooking Morattico Creek. Private bath and queen sized bed complete the amenities of this lovely room.

All guests enjoy the use of the living room/creek room area, den with satellite TV, and freedom to roam the scenic 15 acres with dock, garden areas and forest. It is a bird enthusiast's paradise - waterfowl of all kinds, from Kingfishers to Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, Osprey, and ducks, and many other small birds from hummingbirds to chickadees. You may even catch sight of a wild turkey or pheasant.
The stained glass class is an intensive two day program, and doesn't leave much time for local sightseeing. Please consider staying an additional day at a reduced rate so that you can enjoy the local wineries, historical sites and unique shopping.
