Student Work

The pictures below are all student work, many designed by them, some from pre-existing patterns. Whatever you can imagine, you can make!!


Stained Glass Patterns

There are many ready-made Stained Glass Patterns to choose from in Lynette’s studio and many online. Patterns sourced online may have copyright, and free stained glass patterns may need significant adjustments which Lynette will help you with. If you’d like to make your own stained glass pattern Lynette will help you create a pattern that is just right for you!!

About Stained Glass Classes

Fall, Winter and Spring Classes begin every 6 weeks or so. Classes run for 6 mornings from 9:30-11:30 OR 6 evenings from 7-9pm.

There are never more than 6 people in any class so you will receive excellent instruction. All skill levels are welcome in all classes. You may work on whatever project you wish if size permits. All tools are provided.

You will learn how to cut glass and stick the pieces together by making a suncatcher in the very FIRST CLASS! Next you will select a pattern within your skill level, and for the remaining 5 classes you will create it! By the end of the series you will take the completed project home to hang or give as a gift!

Materials typically cost $$$ available from local retailers. You will receive a materials list and list of retailers at your first class including Atlantic Stained Glass, Stained Glass for Less, Cole Harbour Stained Glass, and Cranberry Stained Glass.

Classes and Workshops year round!
