1pm to 4pm
Design and make your own leadlight design using copper foil, solder and pre-cut glass shapes, exploring colour, texture and movement of light. Afterwards, take your unique creation home and hang it in a light-filled window.
With its origins in Roman and Byzantine windows, lead-lighting is a practical and decorative technique that’s been used for thousands of years. In her own art practice, Chelsea uses lead-lighting (as well as blacksmithing and costuming) techniques to explore themes of time and transformation, often referencing the harlequin pattern, her works are theatrical and playful.
Full price: $100.00
