2 x 5 hours Class size 1 to 10 (public classes), 4 to 24

label $280 - $300 (or 4 payments of $70 - $75 Afterpay)
($300 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $280 for 2+ guests)



Learn the process of creating a leadlight window from pattern and glass selection, to glass cutting, breaking, and shaping, working with lead cames, and soldering, puttying, and finishing panels in our custom-built studio in our historic precinct.

Working with your choice of one of our pre-prepared patterns you will be shown all of the relevant skills including how to cut and shape glass pieces using glass cutters and glass grinders. Projects are kept to a manageable size and design so that you will be able to experience the whole process of creating a leadlight panel.

The workshop costs include all materials required and all tools will be provided in the studio.

The class will run in two sessions to allow for the whole process to be explored.
Session 1: 10:30am- 3:30pm Saturday (includes break for lunch which is provided)
Session 2: 10:30am - until project is finished on Sunday (some participants may finish their projects earlier).

Lunch will be provided on the first day using all local organic produce and can cater for any dietary requirements you may have. We also provide you with a divine afternoon treat and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course. We anticipate that participants will be completed in time to check out one of our great local cafes for a late lunch on Sunday.

Loved the whole leadlighting experience, everyone went home with an amazing piece. The teachers provided lots of help and encouragement with patience and good humor.
A delicious lunch was provided.

We arrived as total novices. Rhain and Ettore with both excellent teachers. We left there feeling that we could tackle our own projects. The atmosphere is great. Plenty of light and good work spaces. Would recommend this course to anyone that has been interested in leadlighting for as long as we have.
