About the course

Moravian stars are a centuries-old design for paper lanterns that have become beautiful glass ornaments and light fixtures. We’ll use the foil method (also known as Tiffany style) of stained glass to construct a variety of Moravian stars – different sizes, shapes and configurations - that can be used for ornaments, sun catchers, and even light fixtures. Brush up on your geometry, we’ll be working with polyhedrons to make art!!
