The Stained Glass Centre’s autumn lecture will be given by Sarah Brown, Director of the York Glaziers Trust, and is entitled ‘The East Window of York Minster (1405-8): the conservation of John Thornton’s medieval masterpiece’.
The York Glaziers Trust is currently engaged in the HLF-funded conservation of York Minster’s Great East Window of 1405–1408, the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in Britain and one of the most ambitious medieval windows ever made [Fig. 7]. This lecture will explain the current project in the context of past interventions and new research.
The lecture takes place on 3 October 2013 from 7pm at the church of St Martin-cum-Gregory, Micklegate, York. Tickets are £5 and are available on the door.
