Fillo Family Wins Thistle Panel

The panel was made with the assistance of several volunteers from Beaconsfield as part of the "Journées de la Culture." The panel was not quite finished at the end of the "marathon" event. Michelle Janis from the cultural services drew the winning ballot, the Fillo family being the lucky winners.

Stained Glass Demo at "Journées de la Culture"

I'll be giving a stained glass demo at Centennial Hall in Beaconsfield for the Journées de la Culture, in the afternoon. I hope for clement weather!

I will be making this Thistle Pattern with the help of two high school art students. It will be a marathon!

The piece will be drawn among the visitors at the end of the day. I'll be preparing contest forms!

Stained Glass Pattern Templates Now Available

I teach a stained glass design class, and the students seem to enjoy enjoy working with the templates I provide them with. On account of the enthusiasm, I am making my templates available to the public:

Stained Glass Pattern Templates

These templates will allow you to frame your subjects attractively with shapes that are even, geometric, and symmetrical without you having to worry about all the rotation and calculations required to achieve those results.

Glass Cutting and Design Classes in Montreal

How to Cut Difficult Glass
Saturday 17th October 13:00 – 14:30 Free!
Everyone can benefit from this seminar! Chantal, (of Orchids in Stained Glass fame) will be hosting this new seminar. Certain of the more exotic glass, such as Uroborus or Bullseye or Youghigheny can make all the difference in a project. Instead of feeling fearful, or running out to buy a glass saw, learn how to conquer the most difficult of glass. Chantal will teach you tricks to cut every type of glass with nothing but your glass cutter, giving you the confidence to include some beautiful art glass without being worried of wasting expensive and beautiful glass.
