Step aboard the bus to explore how local architects historically have utilized a rainbow of coloured glass to enhance their buildings’ interior design, decoration and use. The tour will be guided by architectural historian and author Jim Wolf who will share insights about local art glass studios and artisans as well as the international studios that were suppliers for larger memorial windows in religious buildings. We will visit inside several buildings to get the best view of the glass and appreciate impressive examples of the stained glass to be found in Vancouver’s landmark buildings and private homes.

Please note the bus tour will go ahead rain or shine, and passengers will need to get on and off the bus several times throughout the tour. Please dress appropriately.
