Includes tuition, materials and lunch.

In this one-day workshop, you will be introduced to specialist techniques about working with stained glass and adhesives to create stunning and unique 3D bottlebrush flowers and leaves on a clear perspex background that 'glows' when the light shines through it. 

You will learn about cutting and assembling glass shards, using glass scoring and shaping tools to create leaves and stems, and many tips and tricks about working with adhesives to create a 3D form. You will have the satisfaction of creating something unique and beautiful with your own hands and learning new skills!

Meet your tutor

Catherine Conaty is a stained-glass mosaic artist who has been working with glass for more 25 years and teaching mosaics professionally for 10 years. She loves the limitless, colourful potential that mosaic offers as an art form while being sustainable and permanent. Catherine creates everything from micro mosaics to large scale architectural installations, however, she has a special love for the technique of glass on glass because of the ‘dance of light’ that can be achieved in this medium. She is one of the Queensland representatives of the Mosaic Association of Australia and New Zealand (MAANZ).

All our Hands-on Workshops have a limited number of participants to ensure you receive all the assistance and direction you require.
