Our November workshop will cover the basic steps taken to restore a historic stained glass window. Participants will learn methods and techniques of repair using standard tools and equipment for traditional stained glass windows. Tools and equipment provided.
A stained glass window in any building (historic or contemporary) is a work of art that should be respected and cherished. Rhonda Deeg from RLD Glass and Restoration, LLC, loves to work with this medium and understands how important it is to keep these pieces of artwork maintained and looking beautiful for all to enjoy.
When restoring stained glass windows, Rhonda believes in repairing only what is necessary. Most windows only need cleaning and maintenance. Rhonda follows the standards and guidelines for the preservation of historic stained glass set forth and published by the Stained Glass Association of America for all work.
