Canterbury Cathedral contains over 1,200 square metres of stained glass depicting inspirational stories of men and women, including one of England’s largest collections of early medieval stained glass. Much of this is in need of urgent attention with estimated costs of £3m. All conservation work is carried out at our own Stained Glass Studio, employing 8 highly-trained conservators and glaziers.
With a global reputation for excellence, the Studio has worked on preserving glass for many other cathedrals, parish churches, and other historic buildings. We also provide essential outreach placements for students of stained glass conservation.
We hope to stage major exhibitions of the Cathedral’s stained glass at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles in late
2013 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in early 2014.
I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay their foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
