Classes


Leadlight by Ettore run classes in leadlighting, mosaics, glass fusing and slumping, and framing. All our classes are self paced and students create individual projects of their choice. In all classes students will first be shown any required basics of glass work (eg; cutting, breaking and grinding glass) and then will be assisted in choosing their own project.

The class sizes are small and informal allowing all students to progress at their own pace and have access to the tutors. Unless stipulated our classes do not require any prior knowledge or experience.

All our student resources (including a list of required tools and skills) can be found in our Student Zone, or to see a selection of works created by Leadlight By Ettore's students visit our student works gallery.

Weekend classes:

Unlike our weekday classes our weekend classes focus on a specific style of glass working or related group of skills and provide an opportunity to both learn new skills and create finished items.


** If the weekend classes on our calendar do not suit your timetable we are more than happy to discuss options with you for your own small groups.


Children's School Holiday Fusing Classes January 2018:

Our children's holiday classes allow budding artists, aged 5+, a chance to work with glass in a safe and controlled environment. Children under 9 must be accompanied by a supervising adult for the duration of the class and this adult will be able to create an item for the cost materials only.
