In this workshop you can learn the basics of leaded stained glass.
We will go through:
-The technique of cutting glass
-Choices of subject and design
-Cutting the different pieces of glass
-Cementing, polishing, and finishing your project.
We will complete a simple leaded panel approx. 17cm, made of up to 10 pieces of glass.
We'll go through from beginning to end in two days, which means it will be an intensive, but lovely, experience!
All tools, equipment and consumables provided.
What to bring : Please wear comfortable clothing in layers. The process can get mucky, so please bring a smock or work apron! Closed-toed shoes are required, and socks are advised. Bring a pencil, pen and paper for notes -- and a pack lunch!
As we'll work with lead, this course is not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
