12 Feb March 26 Program – Jeff Denning
Stained Glass Made Easy
with Jeff Denning
Tuesday, March 26 | 7–9 pm
If you are curious about what goes into making stained glass art, are thinking about stepping into stained glass as a hobby, or are looking for some trade secrets to enhance your skills, fasten your seat belts… this is the program for you!
In this 2 hour program, we will explore why the design of the artwork dictates the techniques used in its creation, why we use different materials to hold glass together, and how we choose where we begin building a stained glass panel. We will remove the mystique surrounding stained glass media.
You will have the opportunity to make it interactive with questions and even contribute some of your own techniques.
Jeff Denning is a member of the Redlands Art Association and owns Mezza Luna Studios in Redlands specializing in custom stained glass.
His 40 year background in stained glass artwork began as a passive hobby and grew to be what it is today. While living in Monterey during the 1990’s, a renowned stained glass artist mentored Jeff and taught him how to bring his art to life and take advantage of the uniqueness of glass. His woodworking skills make him a “one stop shop” when it comes to preparing openings, frames and installing custom art.
Jeff’s portfolio demonstrates imagination, creativity and diversity in styles, repairs, restorations and small to medium sized artwork.
