Hello, and thanks for your interest in taking one of my one-day 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 weatherproof 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 breastfeeding.
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. A list of accommodation in the village is available on request, including, hotel, b&b, Airbnb and camping options.
7 hours (10:00am to 5:00pm)
Medium - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts
