Creating something out of stained glass isn’t easy. It takes a lot of patience, a keen eye for detail, and a certain creative flare. The images below illustrate a few of the key stages to bringing a stained glass creation to life:

All tools and supplies are included in workshop price, unless you wish to upgrade your design from the one provided.
