The latest video on Palmers Green Tales looks at the career of a local artist and craftswoman who draws inspiration from the stained glass she sees in the surrounding streets.  Jenny Bourke introduces the video:

stained glass by annahita hessami"Susan Mehmet and I have made a really interesting film this month about a local stained glass artist called Annahita Hessami. Anna moved to Palmers Green when she was young and attended Hazelwood and Ashmole Schools. You will see in the film how she was influenced by the wealth of stained glass in Palmers Green and how she works in the domestic setting, fine art and municipal settings. Annahita invited us into her studio and demonstrates on film how pieces of stained glass are designed and made. We see how multi faceted the process is, it includes designing for a particular purpose, choosing appropriate materials and then making and hanging the finished piece."
