I am now offering one on one stained glass courses in my studio at Kaiwaka, New Zealand.

Courses Overview

The basics of copper foiling.
For total beginners or those who have recently started in the craft....
You'll learn the right way to cut straight lines and curves, foiling skills and the fundamental soldering techniques. You will be taken through the whole process of flat panel copper foiling and you'll take home the completed project for the day. This course intensive is completed in a single day, with a course time of 6 hours.

The basics of lead lighting.
This is the same as above except you'll learn how to use lead canes as your joining media.
