Whimsical shapes, illustrative scenes or divine stories, stained glass has re-created the light in our lives for centuries.
Stained glass artisans use glass color and texture to produce light forms and patterns creating mood and character in small and large spaces.
Want to know more? Then this four-session stained glass workshop will shed some light on the process of stained glass.
