ART*0138 STAINED GLASS
Dana Rieck teaches in a studio format, where everyone works independently at their own pace and on a work of their choosing. Most students work using the copper foil technique, but advanced students also use lead came. Rieck says “I’m there to help them as much as to teach them—glass is something you learn by doing, by messing up and breaking pieces, and redoing them.” Dana finds teaching the class gratifying, in seeing someone progress to the point that the finished piece usually transcends what the student thought their abilities would be. He adds,” it’s a fun, low-stress, atmosphere!”
