Summer Glass Mosaic with April Caldwell

We will be nipping our own glass, gluing our stained glass onto a small, framed plate of glass in a design of each students’ own making. Once our glue has set over night, we will grout between the glass pieces within the frame. The end result will be a fabulous product to take home.

Artist Bio: Full time artist and an affiliate member of the Stained Glass Association of America, (SGAA), as well as the Randolph Arts Guild in Randolph County North Carolina, April Caldwell works out of her small home studio located in her childhood town of Asheboro. Her career as an artist began in 2017 when she realized this beautiful trade was not a regularly practiced art-form here in our area. Begin there are very few master stained glass artists in the area, April decided to use technology to her advantage, and learned from the masters through their online resources and by reading their books. Though April’s humble demeanor still considers herself an amateur in this field, her work will tell you otherwise. “Every time my imagination inspires me to create a new piece, I learn something new. My hope is to pass on this knowledge to others and maybe make stained glass art a less intimidating art form.” April currently teaches glass art at the Arts Guild.
