What will I learn?

  • We cover all the basic techniques commonly used in commercial leadlight studios.
  • No experience is necessary and you don’t even need to be particularly artistic; we have many designs and books for you to look through and a design/drawing facility for students to use.

What will I create?

  • Past students have made lampshades, sun catchers, leadlight windows and more.
  • You don’t need to have a clear idea of what it is that you want to create as we have hundreds of existing designs and many books for you to look through to gain inspiration.


  • The cost for the six week beginners course is $350.
  • This includes GST, a full took kit and sufficient materials for you to complete two projects
  • A deposit of 30% secures your place in the class, with payment of the balance required at the first class
  • Students receive a 10% discount on all future material purchases and are eligible for super specials that we run from time to time.
