Pittsburgh Stained Glass Studios Tour

Uploaded by opaeducation
For Glassworks Studios in the West End, the restoration and creation of stained glass is the intersection of passion and creativity. From restoring one-of-a-kind Tiffany treasures to installing new windows in regional churches, the third-generation business epitomizes craftsmanship. Glassworks is opening its doors for a tour sponsored by the Pittsburgh Arts Council. Advanced registration is required, as space is limited in the workshop. Expert glass conservator and co-owner Kirk Weaver, who learned the plate glass restoration trade from his grandfather, will lead the tour of the workshop. Touring participants will experience firsthand the stained glass conservation process practiced by Glassworks for more than 100 years. The studio has restored thousands of stained glass windows in churches and homes both regionally and nationally.
