The Stained Glass Centre’s Autumn Lecture will be given by Helen Whittaker, Creative Director of Barley Studios, and is entitled ‘Old Craft, New Art: An Artistic Journey’.
Helen Whittaker has created many new stained-glass windows as well as conserving historic glass over the past 20 years of her career at Barley Studio. In this lecture she will describe her inspirations, including context, narrative, geometry and movement, as well as the process of creating new art to commission using the traditional craft of stained glass, reflecting on the past while looking to the future.
