Stained Glass for Beginners

In this workshop we will complete a small Tiffany style suncatcher, ornament, or flower. Students will be able to choose a pre-drawn pattern from a variety of designs and be guided as they learn to cut the glass (chosen from a variety of types and colors), smooth the glass pieces with a grinder, apply copper foil tape, solder the pieces together into the final piece using lead-free solder, and add jump rings or a copper wire stem. The patterns available will offer a variety of levels of difficulty so students may choose what best suits them.

Camp Knife

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne

A heavy chopping knife is an invaluable tool for clearing brush and splitting kindling. This is a comprehensive introduction to bladesmithing. Each student will forge a blade using a gas forge and hand hammer, grind, heat treat and finish the blade with a wood handle. Emphasis will be placed on ergonomic design, edge geometry and heat treating to maximize performance of a working knife.

Herb Drying Tray

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne

Whether drying herbs and flowers for tea, medicine, or natural dyes, this basket design is useful for both harvesting and drying. The bottom is "openwork," allowing airflow from underneath. Students will weave the corners in such a way as to raise the base as well. The sides are "continuous weave" in a two-by-two twill, creating a beautiful stepping-up pattern.
