ABOUT THE WORKSHOP 

Is Stained Glass today a forgotten Art? 

This presentation hopes to address the questions and concerns facing the
Stained Glass Industry. Through a look at the history and evolution of Stained
Glass we will examine issues faced by the consumers, and the stained glass
business over the last 1000 years.


ABOUT the PRESENTER

TONY MERIANO:
I am a retired educator from the Windsor Essex Public School Board.  I became interested in Stained Glass in 1975.  Took classes at St. Clair College in 1976/77.  Opened a shop in 1982,  expanded and did custom work all around the county for 12 years and retailed stained glass supplies.  I also taught evening continuing education classes for St. Clair, the Public school Board and out of the shop for many years.  I sold my shop in 1994.  I have been retired for 19 years and still do a few bits of stained glass from time to time.
