This is a one day introductory workshop to traditional stained glass leaded work. It helps to have done a copper-foil workshop day, but it’s not absolutely essential-really!.

The cost includes all tools and materials you will need.There is a selection of tried and tested patterns for you to choose from in the studio. It is a very busy day and you will be on your feet for most of it and it would be wise to bring along an apron. Lunch is included.

“I have learned more from Caryl in her one day course than I did from the others put together. Caryl shared her tips and methods openly and addressed all of the worries I had. A thoroughly enjoyable day during which I was able to produce a panel I feel very proud of. I would heartily recommend to anybody, beginner or not, as Caryl tailors to your own needs.” Louise

 “Brilliant. Fantastic day. Caryl Hallett is extremely talented and a very good teacher. I would recommend this class to anyone.” Mike

“Just finished a course with Caryl, completing 2 day stained glass panel. This was such a great experience – Caryl was very supportive, hugely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful throughout. It was amazing to leave with my first completed stained glass panel.” Catherine 

“We came away with a beautiful piece of leaded stained glass (around a mirror in a frame in my case) which was entirely achievable in the time we had. We were able to do our own designs, choosing the colours and types of glass we used and there were plenty of her own creations to see if we needed inspiration. Great” Hannah
