National Insect Week returns in 2020

Honey Comb Light-Catcher stained glass workshop at Skelton Grange

Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 10:00 to 13:00

Yorkshire based Glass artist Caryl Hallet will lead an beginners session from 10am-1pm, learning how to select, cut and join stained glass using copper foiling methods, enabling you to make your own honeycomb light catcher to take home. The materials for stained glasswork are very expensive, but please rest assured that all materials and tools will be provided within the workshop price!

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 .
