Stained Glass Stylists of Waretown, New Jersey has become a haven for would-be artists as well as experienced artisans. They've been around for 14 years now, and owners Butch and Jane Gathright say they're not going anywhere.
Butch started in stained glass almost 25 years ago. "There was no one to teach me how to do the craft so I became self-taught, he said.
Having endured the hardships of learning on his own, he made it his mission to help others learn the craft. Over the years I've seen many people go from having never touched a piece of glass to opening their own businesses, he said.
Stained Glass Stylists offers classes in stained glass, kiln-formed glass and more. They also sell a variety of supplies in-store and online. In addition, they specialize in repairs and custom work.
