Sarah Hall Glass Library
 
Sarah Hall, RCA designs large-scale solar and art glass projects for clients around the world. Clients include embassies, cathedrals, schools, universities and colleges. Sarah's projects are renowned for both their innovation and beauty.

The Sarah Hall Glass Library collection highlights over 150 sample glass pieces donated by Sarah Hall to the Sheridan College, Honours Bachelor of Craft and Design (Glass) program in 2017. These samples provide a visual and tactile history of the variety of innovative techniques used throughout Sarah's career.

"The Glass studio under Koen Vanderstukken at Sheridan College, Oakville, Ontario is creating a "Glass Library" — the first in the world — which will include hundreds of samples related to my technical experiments in glass over the years. This collection will serve as an ongoing, hands-on resource for students and scholars interested in studying stained glass techniques. My glass is returning to the first place I studied." - Sarah Hall
