The class will run in two sessions to allow for the whole process to be explored;

Intro to Leadlight windows over the weekend at The Old Auction house is an amazing course. Enjoyed all aspects of learning including glass selection, glass cutting, glass grinding and use of lead sections to hold glass into shape, soldering lead and finishing. Super happy with my finished piece and a new feather in my hat! Thanks Ettore & Rhain for sharing your knowledge and such an enjoyable experience :) Would love to come back for more classes!
