STAINED GLASS CLASSES
Come and Learn the Art of Stained Glass.
STAGE 1– The Beginners Workshop will take 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 4, 5 1/2 hour Saturday or consecutive workshops to quickly get you acquainted with the techniques of making stained glass, and to build on your skills as you complete the classes.
STAGE 2 – The Intermediate Classes follow on in the same format, allowing you to fine tune your skills and tackle your own project as we go further into the techniques of leadlighting, including planning, drawing up and constructing your own larger personal leadlights, or copper foiling. If you are experienced; you can expand your skills working on your dream project with guidance and support.
STAGE 3 – Advanced Classes are regular weekly 3 hour drop–in classes available so you can pursue your own projects in the studio and at home.
LOCATION – Classes are held at the Elegance studio on our property at Yathella on the outskirts north of Wagga Wagga in the Junee direction.
If you’re from out of town, why not put a group of 2 to 4 people together and come on consecutive weekdays or for a long weekend. Stay in Coolamon, Junee or Wagga for an artistic trip away!
