Stained Glass Workshop

Learn an age old craft in our stained glass workshop!

This is usually held as a one day workshop on a Saturday, though we can arrange other days and times by arrangement.

We will teach you how to work to a pattern to make a stained glass item using the Tiffany, or Copper Foil technique.

You can pick any project that you fancy, depending on your glass cutting skill level, and your level of confidence, but it needs to be reasonably simple in order to get through all the stages and get it finished, ready to take home. Once you have all the techniques, then you can go on to make more complex pieces either at home or in future workshops.

We will help you choose your design and we have loads of patterns and ideas and loads of interesting glasses to choose from.

To undertake the Stained Glass class you will need to have existing glass cutting skills. If you don’t already have experience in this area then you will need to complete our short Glass Cutting Class prior to enrolling.

See our Glass Cutting class for more information

Glass Cutting Workshops

About the Classes
This glass cutting workshop is ideal for you, whether you are brand new to cutting glass or wanting to improve your existing techniques. Our aim is to give you the skills to cut and break all those tricky shapes successfully,. You will find that there are a surprising number of tricks and skills to learn and we will show you all that we can.

The cost includes two high quality tools that you take away with you – an oil filled glass cutter and a pair of running pliers.

Glass cutting is an essential skill for leadlight or stained glass work of course, but you will also find it extremely useful for mosaicing and even more useful for glass fusing. You might even like to use it for a little bit of glazing or picture framing!

All the glass, and use of other tools, are included for use during the workshop.

Stained Glass and Fused Glass workshops are also available.

Ink Affair Book Club

This month’s book is:
Title: Wolf Hall
Author: Hilary Mantel
Description:
England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. Into this atmosphere of distrust and need comes Thomas Cromwell, first as Wolsey’s clerk, and later his successor.

Cromwell is a wholly original man: the son of a brutal blacksmith, a political genius, a briber, a charmer, a bully, a man with a delicate and deadly expertise in manipulating people and events. Ruthless in pursuit of his own interests, he is as ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages.

From one of our finest living writers, Wolf Hall is that very rare thing: a truly great English novel, one that explores the intersection of individual psychology and wider politics. With a vast array of characters, and richly overflowing with incident, it peels back history to show us Tudor England as a half-made society, moulding itself with great passion and suffering and courage.

This is a Meet Up.

Life Drawing Session Friday (first and third Friday of the month)

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.
