Saturady 4th November 2017, 10:00-17:00, £90 (Mackintosh Designs)

Please note Leading Workshops are held in the Old Dispensary, 13 St. Mary's Street, Ely.


You will be given an introduction to the techniques employed in the manufacture of an ornamental leaded panel of about 12" x 12". If you have been on a stained glass painting workshop at the Museum you may like to lead up a panel incorporating your own piece of stained glass.

All materials (glass, lead, solder etc. are provided) and tools are available for the use of the participants, although you may prefer to bring your own. You will be taken through each step of the process of constructing a panel and will practise the techniques before making your own panel. 

The morning will be primarily spent learning to cut glass along cutlines provided (though you are welcome to bring your own simple design).  Once all your glass pieces are cut to size and shape, you will then be shown how to piece them together using lead joints and solder.

Tea and coffee will be provided.

Lunch: There may be an hour’s break for lunch. There are many nearby cafes and sandwich shops or you can bring a packed lunch.
