Working with Whanganui glass artist, Greg Hall, Julie is designing and painting 32 stained glass windows, ‘The Whanganui Story’; a project which includes painting details and various elements directly onto glass which has been cut to designed shapes, which is then fired in a kiln before Greg joins the many pieces with lead. The windows are a historical project for the Whanganui District Council, displayed in the Council Chambers, illustrating Whanganui’s history. Visitors to Whanganui are welcome to view the windows. Currently, there are 9 remaining to complete.
