Intro to Leadlight Windows Weekend

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

18 May 2019 to 18 Aug 2019

Learn the traditional craft of Leadlighting in this intensive weekend workshop in Kyneton, Victoria.

Over the two days, you will learn the lost trade of creating a leadlight window by creating a sample panel to take home and display.

Before work on your panel can begin, you must learn the different ways to cut and shape glass and practice with some scrap. Next it’s time to choose your pattern and your tutor will go over the different aspects of glass selection, utilising not only colour but transparency and texture to create depth and interest in your finished piece.

Now the real work of laying out your lead cames and shaping your glass begins. You will work your way through your panel with the assistance of your tutor before being taught how to solder your lead cames together on both sides of your laid out panel. Finally, you will putty, blacken and clean your finished leadlight window.

Lunch and a divine afternoon tea is supplied on day one by a local cafe using all local organic produce and is able to cater for any dietary requirements. Students are generally complete in time to go for a late lunch on day two.
