What do I need to bring?

You just need to bring yourself and whatever makes you comfortable. Your workshop comes with all tools and materials provided. Unless otherwise noted in your class description, we provide pattern options.  Feel free to bring ideas and glass or tile you'd like to use but no need to do so.  We recommend a refillable water bottle with a lid.

What should I wear to my workshop?

Please wear closed toed shoes in the studio & clothes you don't mind getting dirty. We provide aprons and all safety equipment including goggles and protective gloves. 

What are the risks of working with the Stained Glass process?

Day Breaks Glass Studio takes all recommended safety precautions when working with the stained glass process and safety training is provided in every class. All stained glass art is traditionally made using a lead/ tin solder, a liquid or gel flux, and patina chemicals. Protection, ship-shape equipment, and the safe handling of high-quality materials are key to a healthy and rewarding practice. Eye protection and nitrile protective gloves are used during glass cutting, grinding, and soldering. We provide tabletop fume traps for every student during soldering to filter any fumes, and we use a low fume, no smoke flux in our classes. Our properly installed water grinders produce no glass dust. We provide access to D-leading soaps and hand wipes, and we wash all surfaces thoroughly after classes.

We do ask that you protect yourself by wearing closed toed shoes in the studio. Clothes should be comfortable, without open or hanging sleeves, and above all washable.  Aprons are provided.

Food is permitted in the lounge, only.

Although the risks of exposure in our studio is minimal, we do not recommend stained glass if you are pregnant.
