Do you like stained glass? It certainly seems to appeal to a wide range of people and, of course, has played a major part in church and secular building design for many centuries – and continues to do so.
If you would like to learn more from two experts, then come along to Saint Francis Xavier’s church, Salisbury St, Liverpool L3 8DR (next to Hope University Everton campus on Shaw St) on Saturday 7 March at 2pm.
Dennis Eckersley of Design Lights Ltd will describe the work he is doing to restore a World War II damaged stained glass window from SFX church itself.
Professor Raphael Seitz, visiting professor at Hope University, will give a talk entitled 'Breaking Light Like Bread – Art in Stained Glass'. He is an internationally renowned painter and glass artist and is well known in Liverpool for his beautiful works at the Metropolitan Cathedral.
The event is part of a Heritage Lottery Fund project. All are welcome, with entry for free.
