Versicolore workshop (fully booked)
The Versicolore workshop was founded by Magali Jongen in 2007 as a franchise of the Pierre Majerus workshop in Etterbeek. In October 2018, it split from its parent workshop and moved out to Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek. The craftspeople of Versicolore divide their time between creating new pieces of stained-glass art in contemporary or traditional styles and restoring old stained-glass windows. Stained glass was first produced in the Middle Ages, when it was used in cathedrals, churches and certain prestigious residences. Thanks to its style evolving to suit changing tastes, it has had enduring popularity over the centuries, experiencing another particular heyday during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. With its substantial stock of vintage glass, considerable experience and expertise in various techniques, the workshop is able to restore to their original state numerous pieces of glasswork that have suffered the ravages of time. The workshop team also dedicates much of its time to creating new pieces. Be its design figurative or abstract, stained glass always adds an attractive dash of colour to a building, whether it is a restaurant, a town house, an office or a religious building.
