The Stained Glass Manufactory, located in the heart of Vilnius Old Town, is a specialised stained glass and glass design gallery representing the works of the most prominent Lithuanian artists. It is also an educational glass art centre that organises various training programmes for children and adults, and creates and realises single stained-glass windows. The gallery hosts exhibitions, seminars, cultural events, and various art and cultural dissemination projects. Visitors can purchase the works on display at the Stained Glass Manufactory and one-of-a-kind pieces can be made to order.
Children can also participate in the gallery’s “Stiklo keliu” programme, which aims to continue and disseminate Lithuanian stained glass and glass art traditions in the European context.
Guests can take a guided tour of the Stained Glass Museum Exposition, which is set in authentic 16th-century basements.
The tour covers the use of stained glass in architecture, various tools, technologies, and methodologies. Glass cutting, composition, installation and decoration courses are held, as well as creative workshops. You can make your own piece using various glass technologies with the help of a professional artist. You will be taught how to transform natural objects into a work of art using the principles of stained glass composition. The programme promotes cultural activities among children, participation in artistic activities, and develops their aesthetic education.
