Restoration and Repairs
My stained glass workshop has a lot of restoration work and repairs! The windows I am restoring at the moment are from the bell tower of St Anne’s, Bowden hill, Wiltshire. They are leaded lights, glass quarries using antique glass from EAG in Birmingham (English Antique glass). I also replicate the painted broken stained glass which are painted and stained in the traditional manner of the 13th century. Restoring the windows of historic buildings and churches will give them vitality to last at least another century.
I am also doing lots of stained glass commissions/new work for local people and it feels great to be part of their lives in some artistic sense. Making stained glass wolves, owls and hares is all rewarding and heart warming amidst this foggy, blue December. I will be continuing my theme of wildlife and birds in 2017.
My courses have started and are always classes of three, I look forward to meeting new stained glass artists on my courses, making their hearts desire in glass. Check out the courses page,what is on and give me a call !
