About the Course

Hello, and thanks for your interest in taking one of my weekend classes on how to make a traditional leaded glass window. I hold regular classes throughout the year from my professional stained glass studio in beautiful rural Leicestershire.

This is a fun and friendly introduction to learning all the skills you will need to design and make your very own A4 size coloured leaded window 21 x 29cm. Students can choose from a selection of designs, learn how to create a full size design on paper, how to identify and choose the different types of glass available, how to cut the glass to shape, how to prepare a window to be leaded together, how to work with lead and solder, how to use a soldering iron, and how to weather proof the final panel. There will be lots of advice to help each student make their chosen design, which they can take it home at the end of the course..

Please note, this course is NOT suitable if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and use of studio tools and equipment. Each student will make their own panel to take home. Coffee/Tea and biscuits will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch, or you can buy freshly made sandwiches, fruit, or hot soup from our village shop 10 metres from the studio (Saturdays only).

A list of accommodation in the village and surrounding areas is available on request, including, hotel, b&b and camping options.
