Our Story

Stained Glass Stuff began as a small, narrow retail studio in the neighbourhood of Westboro in 1987. It was started by David Tappin who had a knack for stained glass and turned his hobby into a full-time business. 

In 2000, the shop moved to 911 Richmond Road for a 21-year stint. When David retired, his son Kevin took over the business and has enjoyed expanding its services and classes to include warm glass as well as stained glass.

In December 2021, we moved to our current location in Bells Corners, a much bigger space with lots of free parking and easy to get to. With this move, we gained a separate classroom, a coldworking/sawing room, a packing station, tons of storage space, and lots of natural light.

At the end of every day, Kevin can be seen filling up his vehicle with lovingly-packed boxes of glass and supplies heading out through Canada Post to customers around the world. 

The Stained Glass Stuff team includes Alythia, Anita, Bob, Heather, Kelly, Kelsie, Kevin, Ryan, Maureen, Sandra, Talia and various guest instructors.
