Includes tuition, materials and lunch.

Design, cut and create a stunning stained-glass panel for your home with artisan Michele Hollister in a two-day workshop. Learn all about the practice of leadlighting and choose from a wide variety of designs, which you will then construct in glass.

Techniques will include cutting glass, selecting colours and glass types, grinding, leading, soldering and waterproofing. All works will be cement sealed, lead blackened and polished, and participants will walk away with a fully framed, polished and fitted glass panel to the dimensions of 425mm x 325mm.
