National Insect Week returns in 2020

Bumble-bee or Dragonfly stained glass workshop at Skelton Grange

Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 14:00 to 17:00

This copper foiling workshop with glass artist Caryl Hallett builds on introductory skills with stained glass, so previous experience with glass work is advisable. 

You will create a light catcher to hang in your window in the shape of a Bumble Bee or a Dragonfly. The materials for stained glasswork are very expensive, but please rest assured that all materials and tools will be provided within the workshop price! 

Please note there are very limited places on this workshop so you will get plenty of help and support throughout the session.We will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products. Please bring a packed lunch with you - local options are limited.

Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...

You can see examples of Caryl's beautiful work on her website.

All proceeds will go to support the great charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, which you can read more about on our website .
