Course description: While often thought of as an Old World concept,
craftsmen are alive and well in 21st century America. Learn secrets of
the stained glass, painting and stone carving trades from three
Chicagoland craftspeople. You will discover the historical roots of
their arts, see examples of their works, and understand what skills are
needed to complete restorations. Ann Leslie will reveal some of her
amazing stained glass. Mario Guertin will discuss the history of paint
and explain how one distinguishes between a painter and a Master
Craftsman. Kevin Williams will describe the journey through which he
became an apprenticed stone carver. You will hear about the little-known
systems through which artisans become trained and the basics of
business building. Each will show examples of their work and you may
even get ideas for your own work and property.
