STAINED GLASS CLASSES

Come and Learn the Art of Stained Glass.

STAGE 1– The Beginners Intensive Workshop takes you through the traditional steps of leadlighting and copper foiling, introducing you to the skills of cutting and leading glass. This is a hands on class and you can expect to finish 2 to 3 A4 sizes practice pieces. We start with the Beginners Intensive class over 3 days to get you acquainted with the techniques of stained glass, and to quickly build on your skills as you complete the courses.

STAGE 2 – The Intermediate Classes follows on allowing you to fine tune your skills and tackle your own project as we go further into the techniques of leadlighting. Includes planning, drawing up your pattern, and constructing your own larger personal leadlights, or copper foiling. The classes are 9am to 5pm over a 3 day weekend.

If you are experienced, you can expand your skills working on your dream project with guidance and support.

STAGE 3 – Advanced Classes weekly 3 hour drop–in classes available post Intermediate Classes so you can pursue your own projects at home.

LOCATION – Classes are held at the Elegance studio on our property at Yathella, 20 minutes north of Wagga Wagga in the Junee direction.
