Stained Glass Meetup at the Rochester Makerspace

Come see a stained glass demonstration given by an experienced artist and then try it yourself if you'd like to.  We also invite you to bring a project to work on if you've done stained glass before. 

The makerspace has enough grinders and tools for at least 5 to 8 people to work on projects at once.  You can also bring your own equipment if you want to. We have plenty of space. 

There will also be a tour of the Rochester Makerspace, a nonprofit community workshop and art studio.  For $40 per month, which includes a family membership, its members can use a well-equipped woodworking shop, an electronics lab, two 3D printers, sewing machines, a bike repair station and many more tools. Anyone can use the makerspace for free on Thursday nights, except for the wood and machine shops. 

This meetup is free but everyone will have to sign a liability waiver to work with the tools.

This can become a regularly scheduled meetup if there's enough interest. 

DIRECTIONS: 850 St. Paul Street is at the corner of Scrantom Street where there is a traffic light. The building is easy to find but you'll have to drive down Scrantom to the rear parking lot to find the makerspace.  

Call the number on the door for access or walk up the loading dock ramp and take a left.  We're in the left rear corner of the building.

We're easy to get to from Rt. 490.  Just take the inner loop to St. Paul and head north about a mile.  

Give me a call if you have any questions or problems finding the makerspace.  five-eight-five-210-0075.

    Both my guest MJ and I found it very interesting. And we really appreciated the exposure to something new to us without a commitment. Gives us a chance to learn what different crafts are out there and if they are the right fit for us. Nancy was very informative and enthusiastic

    I feel like I'm coming down with the flu. I'm sorry I'll miss this tomorrow night!

    Yes, it's a free demo where you'll get a chance to try cutting and grinding some glass. You'll also be able to get a quick tour of the Rochester Makerspace.

    I'm sorry to have to change the date. Our instructor had another commitment she couldn't change.

    We've got lots of colored glass. Much of it is stained glass and fusing scraps by the pound. Very inexpensive way to get started.

    Yes, complete beginners are welcome. They can give it a try and use the makerspace's tools for free on Thursday nights if they want to continue. It's not very hard, or expensive, and Nancy will be offering classes soon.

    Is this now open to people who have never done it? I would actually be happy watching the demonstration and those that know what they are doing. Would be interested to learn what it is all about.

    I found a great instructor and artist. Nancy's going to give a demo and then help everyone try cutting and grinding glass. Bring your own project if you already know what you're doing.

    Tuesday evening works. I have experience with stain glass and have my tools...I think.......

      Are you willing to help my wife, who is still a bit of a novice, to give a demo and show others how to do the basics? If so, we can pick a date.

      January 20, 2014

  • Rob

    If you don't want to wait until I pick a date then come visit the makerspace on any Thursday night after 6 PM, when we have our free weekly Community Nights. But contact me first to make certain my wife will be there. She's a novice, and so she doesn't want to teach a big crowd, but she'll help you get started and we have everything you'll need.

    I'm still looking for someone to give a demo or teach a quick class so I'm going to wait a little longer before scheduling a date. When I do, it'll be on a Tuesday night at 7 PM because that's the preference so far.

    Am flexible but prefer Tues. eve or the weekends. Recently took the stained glass class at the Memorial Art Gallery and would like to continue to work with others around, not just at home!

    I am interested in doing this. Monday and Tuesday evenings would be preferable for me. I hope this works out.

      I can do a Tues eve.

    I would be one of those with no experience who would love to see how it is done--even if no hands on. If things work out that you can offer that experience I'd be interested---but if you can't at this time I thoroughly understand
