MEETING

Pictures in Glass - Tony Waldron

Quaker Meeting House, St Helen's Street, Derby


From the early appearance of ecclesiastical glass in the 8th century through to the modern windows of today this talk explores the history and development of the Stained Glass Window. The talk will also include a practical demonstration on how a leaded light panel is constructed. Should be an interesting evening
