Aladdin’s Corner is offering stained glass courses and workshops at their Craft Café at Nottingham Road in the KZN Midlands.

Presenters Jan and Louise van Niekerk have been doing Stained Glass for 32 years now.

“What started as a hobby has turned into a lifelong passion,” they explain. “Having moved to the Midlands Meander on the peaceful Natal Midlands 22 years ago, we have been privileged to live the creative life in these beautiful surroundings.

“As Stained Glass specialists it is our pleasure to introduce you to the magic of stained glass. As labour intensive as the process is, when you hold your first piece, washed and shiny, reflecting the light in more ways than you expected. Being creative is highly rewarding, and we hope to share this experience with you.”
