Lead came has been used to create stained glass windows for centuries and the techniques and materials involved have barely changed over time. It is particularly suited to creating large panels and windows, beautiful examples of which we can see in churches and cathedrals around the world.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners. During the day we cover the basics of cutting and shaping glass, designing and creating patterns for stained glass and the techniques involved in using lead came, solder and lead light cement. During the day each participant will design and make a unique piece of leaded stained glass to take away with them.
Lunch and refreshments are provided on all courses, as are all materials and equipment. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies. Please wear closed toe shoes for safety reasons.
Unfortunately pregnant women are advised against working with stained glass as the lead can harm a developing foetus.
Whilst we strive to be totally inclusive, the Stonefield Glass studio is attached to our family home and we are unable to accommodate some wheelchairs. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
Please note that courses will only run with a minimum of two participants. If your booking is the only one for a date then I will contact you to arrange a date change or a full refund.
