Welcome to MAACM’s Glass Studio!
Learn the art of leaded glass! If you are new to leaded glass, join one of our introductory classes to learn the basics of cutting and soldering or for more experienced students, join a level II class for more of a challenge.
MAACM’s Glass Classes are taught by master craftsman Carlos Velasco, whose experience with artistic glass has deep family roots stretching back three generations. His grandfather Jose Velasco, born in Spain (1911), immigrated to Colombia where he established a thriving family glass business named Casa Velasco, where Carlos apprenticed at the age of 14. Carlos has worked on many important restorations of art pieces in private collections and public works of art, locally and internationally.
Level I Introductory Classes
Level I classes are the perfect introduction to the craft of leaded glass-making. Learn the basics as you create your own 6 x 7- inch glass panel. Introductory classes are two sessions, each lasting 3 hours.
