​​​Essential ​Skills for Successful

​S​TAINED GLASS  HOBBYISTS

​Training, advice & support for new and experienced makers to master skills & build confidence. 

DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

​​You have  ​big dreams of creating gifts and windows, but don't know where to start​ or the things you are making, aren't ​turning out the way you want...

You've spent countless hours trying to ​search the internet for answers, and you're sick of the frustration of wasting precious creative time...

Your ​head is f​ull of project ideas but they all seem to be just out of reach, and you​r​ schedule​ ​doesn't fit the local classes for you to learn new techniques.​..

You’re ​worried about making mistakes ​​every step of the way, and you’re not enjoying ​your hobby as much as you th​ink you could...

​If it does, then you already know how​ ​challenging it can be to ​learn on your own at home

THAT'S WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BUILD THIS SITE

  • Creating with glass is my way to escape after a stressful day.
  • It's quality time I can spend reflecting on my own thoughts.
  • The sense of accomplishment I feel when I successfully tackle a new challenge or finish a project carries me through some duller moments

I hear so often that ​this isn't the reality for others and I truly wish it were.  

Thankfully, it can be...

Meet the Founder of Make Stained Glass

Hi, I'm Samantha Calder - the owner and artist at Living Sun Glass studio - where I've spent years teaching and guiding hundreds of new & experienced hobbyists to grow their confidence and create wonderful stained glass projects.

With over 13 years experience with stained glass and almost 20 years in customer service, I have a proven track record of helping ​ great customers achieve wonderful & amazing results.

Being struck with a balance disorder in 2013 ​brought the inability to teach as regularly as I was, and that's when the idea of venturing into the online world came about. 2016 unfolded the concept of creating a membership site as a way to share my knowledge and expertise with even more makers while they learn this exciting art form from home​.


Reader ​​​​Feedback​

"Just wanted to say thanks for the repair tutorial. I enjoyed watching it. I have done many repairs but didn’t ever take the foil off along the broken piece alone. I always ended up having to redo both sides as I would peel off both sides. So thanks for this. Makes a lot more sense. The longer I do glass the more I learn. Been in it for 35 years and still learning."
