In celebration of National Science Week 2022  join local artist Vaughn Bisschops as he shares the science and secrets of creating stained glass.

About the presenter 

Vaughn specialises in a range of stained glass work from repairs through to major church commissions and focuses on the highly specialised technique of painting on glass. This technique is used to draw faces, hands, robes and other areas of detail that relies on both technique and skill.

Vaughn is passionate about this art form and has travelled both interstate and overseas to further increase his knowledge and skills. In France he studied medieval techniques, learning methods as used in the windows in Chartres Cathedral (France). Vaughn has also studied an Advanced Glass Painting Course with Gerry Cummins - one of Australia’s master glass painters.
