15 August 2018 • Intro to Leadlight Windows Weekend

Absolutely loved this course and recommend it as an enjoyable and rewarding experience. The trainers were very friendly and knowledgable. The broad range of materials and tools/resourses was a pleasant surprise (I'd been looking for a local course for some time without success). I thought the training pace was perfect for all attendees (this was my 1st class, other attendees each had 1 prior lesson years earlier). I'd certainly attend further sessions to keep growing my knowledge. It's a beautiful art, and the studio and teachers are inspiring. My leadlight piece is proudly displayed in my home, and I look foward to my next visit to the studio to purchase tools for home use. Caroline (Rushworth, Victoria)

Excellent course and most enjoyable and satisfying couple of days. Expert tuition and guidance from Rhain and Ettore ensured everyone had the necessary skills to complete their projects on the weekend. I would highly recommend the course.
