This web site origonally began life back on February 15, 2007 and is being rebuilt and updated as you view thanks to supporters and a new host. It should run for at least the next two years and I hope to keep it running after that for as long as I can. It is planned to to be a support site for those people from within and visiting our part of the Victorian Mallee that need contact into the Artisan Arts.
Mallee Artisan's News Bits
Leadlight repairs are where possible carried out onsite as it keeps the costs down, however you will be expected to pay for traveling time. And yes, I do do quotes for insurance companies but you must pay me for the quote when I attend as I do not claim the cost of the quote from the insurance company, that is up to you to do.
All New Leadlights or matching existing ones (where possible) are manufactured in my studio workshop, if you can provide the frames they are going into I will fit them. Costs depend on both the overall size of the pannel and the glass used but a price of $720.00 per square meter can be considered an overall adverage.
The next Beginners Leadlight (Came) Classes will start in early October 2013, see the side pannel for dates and the course index for details and pre-requisites.
Copper Foiling (04/08/2012)
The next Beginners Level Copper Foiling Classes will start late in November 2012, see the course index for details of the individual Courses.
Please note that all Copper Foil Pictures now use lead-free solder so that the finished product can be safely hung or used in both the home and office situations without worry about lead effecting the area or your insurance.
