Our mission has always been to spread our love of glass art in the community! We offer classes and team building events to individuals, businesses, and schools. We sell supplies to teachers, students, professionals and hobbyists alike, and create custom stained glass and mosaic work. We work with contractors and designers to add gorgeous glass to homes: entries, bathrooms, and kitchens. We support our local artists by representing more than 50 local artists' glasswork and giftware in the gallery space. Each month we put on a showcase of one local artist or patron that we feel is doing something unique with glass art. We are thrilled to be entering our 40th year doing exactly what we love. The Stained Glass Garden was the first store to open on Fourth Street in 1976, which at the time consisted of dirt roads, a goat farm, empty lots, and the Amtrak railroad tracks just 30 yards away. It was founded by artist and teacher, Joan McLean and her brother Bruce McLean. In 1986, Joan became the sole owner and expanded the store threefold. In 1992, SGG relocated down the street to its current location at 1800 Fourth Street, Berkeley, California, and the bustling Fourth Street community has continued to blossom around us!
