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 lead lighting and design your own template 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.

Glass Artist Michele Hollister has been working with glass since 1992 and has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Secondary School teaching. She opened her own business in 1994 and over the years has completed many commissions including the large leadlight window at Centennial Memorial Gardens in Brisbane and many church window restorations. Recently, Michele has held solo exhibitions at Texas and Dalby Regional Art Galleries.
