We see stained glass in our cathedrals, churches, pubs and homes, but how much do we know about it? At the next open meeting organised by the Bishopthorpe Local History Group, Master Glazier, Ian Tomlinson, will let us into some of the secrets of the trade.
In his talk, “Stained Glass – A Mystery Trade”, Ian will explain how glass is made, how the windows are held together and constructed, show us both old and modern tools, and the methods used in medieval times.
The meeting will take place on Tuesday, 14 June 2016 at 7.30pm in Bishopthorpe Methodist Church Hall.
All are welcome. Members of the Group: free. Non-members: £3.50 to include light refreshments.
