Stained Glass Museum Museums
The Stained Glass Museum offers a unique insight into the fascinating story of stained glass, an art-form that has been practised in Britain for at least thirteen hundred years. The Museum's exhibits include an early 19th century stained-glass copy of a work by Raphael and an 18th century panel copied from a portrait by the artist Sir Joshua Reynolds.
Also on display is work by Morris & Co. 20th Century work includes pieces by John Piper, Brian Clarke and Evie Hone famous for work at Eton College Chapel .
The making of stained-glass windows has hardly changed since the 12th century. A stained-glass window consists of pieces of coloured glass held together in a latticed web of lead.
For the very young we offer:-
Hands-on activities for infant schools and other organised groups. Rose window and lantern making, story telling, animal searches, painting on glass etc. .
