For decades, the Emerald Arts Society has housed a leadlight room, where students have created a variety of art works including windows, mirrors, lampshades, jewellery boxes, terrariums and mobiles.
Under the expert guidance of Lindsay Dyer, students quickly learn techniques to overcome any fears they may have of cutting and working with glass. Glass grinders also allow students to make complex pieces from the first project. Classes predominately uses lead cane, not copper foil for finishing, as this tends to produce a better finished product.
Students are free to choose any project they wish to work on, be it something small, large or even mending an existing broken item.
THE TEACHER: Lindsay has been teaching leadlight classes at EAS since 1984 and has been creating glass works of art for many years prior to this. Lindsay enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge of this medium with new students.
