Intro to Leadlight Windows Weekend
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.
Participants will be shown all of the relevant skills including how to cut and shape glass pieces using glass cutters and glass grinders.
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 catered 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.
All sessions of the class will be held at the Leadlight By Ettore studios; Studio 1, The Old Auction House, 52-56 Mollison St, Kyneton, VIC, 3444.
The workshop costs include all materials required and all tools will be provided in the studio for use by participants.
