Tool List for Glass Arts

Do you need a pair of running pliers, lead dykes, or have to bring your own grinder? Whether you are new to glass arts or just wanting to check your tool kit is all in order have a look at the following graphic. New students please don't go out prior to classes and purchase all these items, instead bring along anything you already own that you think may be suitable and we will check them out for you, often you will not need to purchase items until you require them.

Skills of Glass Arts

As many students find glass arts very different to other arts they have tried previously often they can be apprehensive about the skills they require prior to attending classes, and the skills they will develop with the different glass arts offered by the Leadlight By Ettore studios. The good news is no skills are required prior to attending our classes as we will work with students to learn anything they require and assist where needed. The following graphic however shows the skills students can expect to develop while working in various glass arts.

Setup of a Leadlight/(Stained Glass) Panel

Before you start work on your leadlight panel make sure you know what you will need to complete the project. Knowing what makes up the panel will make planning your projects easier. Our handy lead came information bubbles will also help to understand the lead came profiles and all the parts of each length of lead.

Anatomy of a Copper-foil Lamp

If you are wanting to make your own copper-foil (Tiffany style) glass lamps but not sure what to call the other parts you may need when the glass work is finished check out our graphic. Knowing where your finial, harp, and spider all go may make the decisions on sizes and styles easier.
