The Versicolore workshop was set up 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. Having been used in churches, cathedrals and certain prestigious residences in the Middle Ages, stained glass has enjoyed enduring popularity through the centuries and evolved to suit changing tastes, experiencing another heyday in 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 condition numerous pieces of glasswork that have suffered the ravages of time. The workshop team also dedicates much of its time to creating new pieces. Whether figurative or abstract in design, stained glass always adds an attractive dash of colour to a building, be it a restaurant, a town house, an office or a religious building
