exclusive patterns

full sized mosaic mirror patterns

These wonderful patterns are designed right here by our own Dawn Hicks and are exclusive to The Leadlight Workshop. Each comes with a full sized printed cutline drawing, comprehensive instructions, a colour diagram of the finished design and a list of the glass required – or choose your own for a one-off design!

We currently offer a range of 15 patterns detailed here and all are available from our online catalogue.

full sized leadlight patterns

Our own range of full sized leadlight patterns is currently being developed, with the first five designs available now from our online catalogue. We're happy to scale the cutlines up or down from the original – simply contact us to discuss your requirements.

3d suncatcher patterns

Our spinning crystal suncatcher patterns, designed by Dawn Hicks here at The Leadlight Workshop, include a printed pattern, complete instructions and suggestions on using brilliant coloured and iridised glass combined with glass crystals and beads.

These patterns are a definite hit! Find out more in our online catalogue.

next generation snapout templates

Next Generation SnapOut Templates are reusable, precut plastic templates we originally developed as a teaching tool. They were so successful that we now produce designs for 12 bedside lamps, 6 larger skirted lampshades, 14 photo frames, 6 beautiful lanterns and 15 jewellery boxes!

The templates are accompanied by a full size pattern and comprehensive instructions – all you need do is choose your own glass! Many of the designs can be enhanced with the use of foiling and decorative soldering, so if you enjoy those crafts do take a look!

The full range is detailed here and available from our online catalogue as well as from selected retailers. Ask your local supplier!

free patterns

Create beautiful copper foiled suncatchers with our latest set of free patterns! These three are from Australian artist Jillian Sawyer's wonderful books, available in our online catalogue.

You can print the patterns directly from your web browser program and then use a photocopier or scanner to scale them to your preferred final size. Use your browser's back button to return to this page.


Our thanks to Jillian and her publisher Glass Books for their kind permission to reproduce these patterns.
