A study day on the important fifteenth-century glass in the Savile Chapel at the parish church of St Michael and All Angels, Thornhill (Yorkshire), will be held on 13 October 2012, 11am – 3pm.
The glass in the east window of the chapel includes a rare depiction of the Heavenly City. As reported in Vidimus no. 49, a multi-disciplinary collaboration between different experts has resulted in the decision to create a replica window and display elements of the ancient glass within the Savile Chapel. Some of the glass was featured as the Panel of the Month in Vidimus no. 27.
The study day aims to examine the how and why of this uniquely fascinating project, and to promote informed debate. Speakers include Sarah Brown, chairman of the CVMA (GB); Dr David Martlew, chairman of the Society of Glass Technology; and the well-known glass-painter Jonathan Cooke, ACR. Admission is £10 (students £5), which includes a buffet lunch, tea and coffee.
