Glass art: a serious business in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/ Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe (fully booked)
A stunning mirror mosaic at the exit of the pre-metro station is our first clue that glass is extremely important to this neighbourhood. Lots of the private houses nearby boast fabulous stained-glass windows, many of which were created by anonymous glassmakers. Others, however, came from the workshops of renowned Brussels glassmaker Pierre Majerus, who masterfully demonstrated his skill in stained-glass windows depicting a mountain landscape and – fulfilling a childhood dream – a racing car. The tour concludes on a high note at Divin Sauveur/Goddelijke Zaligmaker Church, home to both an exquisite ‘Jesse tree’ crafted by Majerus and Maurits Nevens’ Point Omega, a stunning stained-glass window inspired by the work of Teilhard de Chardin.
In French only.
In cooperation with Brussels Bavard.
