4/10 | Stained Glass Sun Catcher Workshop with Brewer & Marr Glassworks!
When: Sunday, April 10, 10 AM
Where: ROW DTLA
What We’re Doing: Join us for a morning of flexing your creative muscles in this stained glass class!
In this introductory workshop, no previous experience with the craft is required. Chelsea Brewer of Brewer & Marr Glassworks will guide you through the entire stained glass assembly process. You’ll be making a modern designed sun catcher while learning the basics - and mindful practice - of the copper foiled stained glass method. Walk away feeling empowered with the knowledge & appreciation of the stained glass craft, and your very own sun catcher - hand made by you! - to display in your home, office, etc.
All supplies and materials are included in the class fee.
The workshop is equipped with:
- Modern sun catcher pattern.
- Colorful glass & bevels (for maximum light refraction).
- All supplies and materials required for assembly.
- Instruction on how to handle each tool and material, safely.
- Choice of finish: Silver, Copper, or Black Patina.
- Exclusive gift card/discount code for you to use in the Brewer & Marr web shop.
Be prepared to get your hands dirty! Making stained glass sun catcher's is a lot of fun, risky at times, but a perfectly safe craft to practice when proper safety measures are followed. We will be handling sharp objects, HOT irons to liquify solder containing different alloy metals (including small amounts of lead), as well as various chemicals. Splatter and spills happen! For your protection aprons, oven mitts, latex gloves, goggles, respirators, & a first aid kit is provided. Due to the nature of the craft, expecting mothers are advised to participate at their own risk.
MUST BE 18+ YEARS OLD TO PARTICIPATE: This workshop is best suited for folks 18 and up.
Makers Mess and Brewer & Marr Glassworks will not be held responsible for any injury, loss, or damage to person and/or property that may be sustained as a result of participation in the above event.
About the Artist:
Chelsea Brewer is a modern art glass artist based in central California. Her love of light, color, and texture is reflected in her chosen stained glass medium and minimal approach to design.
She began Brewer & Marr Glassworks in 2015, selling finished desert-themed sun catchers to home and lifestyle shops (like, Summer Camp!) in Ojai, CA. As interest grew, her hobby quickly turned into a full-time business with the Brewer & Marr web shop, making more wholesale work for retail shops across the country, and designing commissions for homes and businesses in the area.
Her work has been featured in Sunset Magazine and sold in Talisen West the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture Gift Shop, and the Desert Botanical Garden Gift Shop, among others.
In response to incredible demand, in 2016 she started presenting one-of-a-kind pop-up style stained glass workshops at design showrooms, art museums, conferences, studios, and various lifestyle shops & tasting rooms across the west; most notably- the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, Craftcation, Workshop SF, and Makers Mess in Los Angeles.
Looking to expand her in-person workshops and share them with people everywhere, Chelsea began fabricating a stained glass-making kit. In 2020, she released The Modern Glass Craft Kit (MGCK) offering creative folk an accessible way to experience the creatively empowering craft of stained glass from the comfort of their own homes.
