Classes & New Student Information

A note to past students who have visited Cains Cottage at The Gap, We have moved to the Hartley-Williams building at      

32 Kremzow Road, Brendale and the studio is located on the mezzanine level within the warehouse overlooking all the gorgeous art glass!!

The Cains Cottage studio is equipped with an extensive range of glass, materials and equipment including a kiln,

allowing students to complete projects in a range of areas:

 

  • LEADLIGHT

  • COPPERFOIL

  • MOSAIC

  • SLUMPING

  • FUSING

 

 

 

 

All classes cater for beginner through to the advanced, with individual attention for each student.

It could be that students are working on different projects, so you might choose to work on a leadlight window, with the student next to you completing a copperfoil lamp while another does a mosaic bird bath.

 

Students choose their own project and work at their own pace.

 

Class sizes are kept small (usually 6-8 students) so that you receive maximum attention.  Classes are very social and

students can learn in a friendly, non-judgemental atmosphere.
