Come and Learn the Art of Stained Glass.

If you have ever wanted to learn to leadlight, Elegance Stained Glass now offers classes in the Riverina area.





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, & possibly move onto your own small project during the course.

In the Intermediate and Advanced Hobby Classes  you can fine tune your skills as we go further into the techniques of leadlighting, including planning, drawing up and constructing your own larger personal project, and copper foiling. If you are experienced; you can expand your skills and tackle more complex projects with guidance and support.

The classes are held at the Elegance studio on our property at Yathella on the outskirts of Wagga Wagga in the Coolamon / Junee direction.  See map here   Map  →

We start with 3, 8 hour Saturday or comsecutive weekday workshops to quickly get you acquainted with the techniques of making stained glass, and to build on your skills as you complete the classes. Following on, there are regular weekly classes available so you can pursue your own projects.

If your 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 for an artistic trip away!


If you are interested in the classes, please email or call me and I will send you out more detailed information.
