Students doing the leadlight weekend will need to provide their own tools. If you would like to buy tools we prefer that you pre-purchase them online and we will have them ready in the classroom on the day of your course. You can find the leadlight kit in our online store.

If after consultation and estimation of cost you are happy with our design ideas, a deposit will be taken. At this point our glass artist will work with you to finalise your design and produce a coloured artwork for your approval. A glass selection is made with your involvement followed by the building of your new leadlight.
An indication of price is all we can provide over the phone/email as the price of stained glass is based on complexity of design. A more accurate price can only be given once the design and sizes are established.
