Led by a team of cathedral guides, the day will include a short film on the making of a stained glass window, followed by tours of the cathedral’s important medieval stained glass in the east window, Lady Chapel and cloisters. After a light lunch in the Cathedral Function Suite (stair access only), the afternoon session will be spent studying Victorian and later glass. This includes work by well-known nineteenth-century firms such as Clayton & Bell, Hardman’s and C.E.Kempe, twentieth-century windows by Christopher Whall and recent installations by contemporary artists such as Caroline Swash and Tom Denny.
The study day will run from 10.15am – 3.45pm. The price, including lunch, is £20. All the proceeds from the event will go towards the upkeep of the cathedral. Places are limited to 25.
