The Stained Glass Museum is delighted to be holding its 16th annual Study Weekend in Essex during April 2016. We will explore this rich and under-explored county from our base in the historic town of Colchester and over the weekend we will visit a variety of sites to see a range of stained glass spanning the medieval to the modern period. Highlights include the 12th and 13th century glass at Rivenhall, unique 14th and 15th century glass at Sheering and Margaretting. For post-medieval glass we will see the stunning imported 16th and 17th century French glass from the Neave Collection at Noak Hill, 18th century glass at Leigh-on-Sea.
Throughout the weekend we will also see windows by key 19th and 20th century makers and studios. Including visites to see the windows designed by Edward-Burne-Jones for Powell & Sons at Waltham Abbey, alongside less familiar glass by Percy Bacon, Townshend and Howson, and A.K. Nicholson. We will also see more recent glass by John Hayward and Patrick Reyntiens, and will visit the splendid ‘Art-Nouveau cathedral’ at Great Warley, which although the original glass was destroyed, is well known for its Art Nouveau fittings and today includes windows by Powells and Lawrence Lee.
