2016 Beyond William Morris, British Stained Glass and the Arts & Crafts Movement – Study Day

Tuesday 23 June 10:45 AM to 5:30 PM

Price for single attendee: £55.00

In the morning we will visit the Stained Glass Museum, Ely, with an in-depth tour of the unrivalled late 19th- and early 20th-century stained glass in the museum’s collection, both on display and in store. Led by the museum’s Curator, Dr Jasmine Allen, the tour will focus on key works made in this period, many under the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement. These include works by well known designer William De Morgan, James Clarke/Arthur Dix, artist-craftsman Karl Parsons, leading Irish artists Harry Clarke, Wilhelmina Geddes, and Evie Hone and other neglected figures such as Leonard Potter and Leonard Walker. After lunch (not included in ticket price) we will take a coach to visit St Ethelbert’s Church, Herringswell, Suffolk (30-40 mins by coach from Ely), where outstanding examples of early 20th-century stained glass windows designed by James Clarke/Arthur Dix, Christopher Whall and his pupils Paul Woodroffe and Jasper Brett can be seen. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the stylistic influences, materials and techniques of stained glass in this period. Access: please note the museum is located up a stone staircase of 40 steps, with no lift. Tour in the museum will be half the party each time to get the best out of the spaces, other half of the party will be given a tour in the cathedral and then swap around. Meet at Ely Cathedral, about 20 minutes’ walk from the railway station. £55. Booking required.*
