Fred Schendel is a master stained glass artisan from France who is visiting California in order to learn about the great skills of the Bay area stained glass masters.

He has been working with glass for 15 years, with apprenticeships in Paris, Barcelona, and Prague. While in Prague, he worked at one of the oldest heritage restoration studios in Czech Republic. He has restored windows in some of Prague’s most well known landmarks, including St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle. His studio in Provence, Chefraled in Vitraux, specializes in both traditional lead came techniques and modern, art nouveau inspired Tiffany techniques. He regularly teaches classes and has offered art history walking tours and presentations.

On May 20, he will offer a presentation (in French and English) about the history of stained glass in the office of Accent on Languages on 1840 Alcatraz avenue in Berkeley.

On May 27, he will lead a hands-on stained glass workshop (in French and English) at the Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley. This will be another great chance to learn about the history of stained glass while creating your own small work of art.
