Leadlight and glass art MakerSpace



This MakerSpace is for people experienced in working with leadlighting and glass.  By working with other leadlighters in a shared studio you can gain inspiration, learn new techniques and share ideas.  

If you don’t have space at home, or your own studio, this is a great way of working on your project in the company of others in our well-equipped, light-filled studio. Regular attendance is not required - drop in anytime during the scheduled hours.

This MakerSpace is for experienced leadlighters only. 
To join this MakerSpace you must be able to work confidently and independently on your own projects and abide by the Safe Studio Practices. Please check with Bronwyn or Gayle, or contact us, if you are unsure. We offer courses for beginners and those who need to improve or refresh their skills and knowledge.

MakerSpaces are creative, social spaces, coordinated by volunteers, which provide opportunities for people to share, learn and connect. There are various MakerSpaces at different locations. Find out more about MakerSpaces

Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.

This activity is open to people aged 18 years and over. 
You can enrol in a MakerSpace at any time.
The MakerSpace fee shown below will be the half-price fee from 1 July.


This MakerSpace is held in our well equipped Art Studio at our Eltham centre - 739 Main Road.
