Learn all about the practice of lead lighting and design your own template which you will then construct in glass. Tickets include artisan instruction, materials, morning tea & lunch.

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.
