Our project will be stars but you will learn how to do more such as ornaments, door hangers, and charms. In one day we learn basic soldering skills as well as more challenging techniques. Skills mastered will be simple glass cutting techniques, soldering and embellishing. There is a "right" way and a disastrous way to create soldered art. You will feel like a professional after this class, ready to solder anything. Your soldering iron will be your new best friend. The supply list may seem daunting but I am so confident you will love this art form that there will be no regrets on the investment. By days end, you will complete at least one star and leave with supplies for a second as well as a new favorite passion.
