Design and construct your own stunning leaded light panel. A practical workshop for those with some basic experience who wish to develop their skills and learn the traditional method of leadwork.
Over the 2 days you will have the opportunity to make an original leaded panel with a surface area of approximately 1 square foot.
A choice of templates are provided with the option to design your own if you prefer. Lilian will take time during the course to advise you on designing specifically for stained glass so please do not plan too much in advance.
At least a little experience of cutting glass is recommended for this course.
Stained Glass Intro (27 & 28 Sep) can be booked together with Intermediate (29 & 30 Sep) as a 4-day workshop.
