COURSES ONLINE NOW!

Our course list is now online and ready for bookings.

This year we are offering the same much-loved courses as last year with Perth Art Glass's experienced and engaging teachers.

Our extremely popular leadlighting weekends begin in March. This is a comprehensive class where beginners are able to go from never picking up a tool to creating a full leadlight panel. Students will leave this course with the confidence to continue working at home.

If you're looking for contemporary glass art there is copper foiling. Beginners will be making feathers but if you did that last year why not look into the intermediate offerings where students can choose from stained glass lamps or glass terrariums.

We are also offering mosaics, bead making and glass fusing and slumping.

 
New Products


We are proud to announce that we will soon be stocking a range of hobby came in lengths and spools. Hobby Came has an extremely narrow face and can be used for small glass projects like suncatchers and 3D copperfoil Projects. It is easy to use and gives a lovely neat edge.


The postal system has been a tricky thing to navigate this year but we are happy to have received a lot of deliveries in January. Have a look at some of our new and replenished products below.

 
Frits, powders, noodles and stringers in a huge variety of colours.
New dichroic glass colours and styles.
Have a look at our great beginner tool kits after enrolling in your course.
WWI Memorial Window Restoration

This Restoration of a WW1 memorial window is now homed at the Bunbury historical society.

This historic WWI memorial window was saved after a local Presbyterian church was demolished in the 1970s. Fortunately, this important piece of local history was salvaged from the builders skip bin and installed in the Bunbury historical society building as part of their local history display. At the time of installation, the stained glass was sealed between two layers of glass without ventilation and the lead slowly started to deteriorate. A delicate extraction of the windows was performed by Ian and Simon to save any damage to the glass and then it was taken back to the studio for a complete re lead and cleaning.

The windows are now installed back at the local historical society display with protective screening that is ventilated and looking as good as they did when first made 100 years ago.
