Stained glass tour

Stained glass tour

On September 1st there will be an informal tour of the stained glass in Holy Trinity Church Skipton with Jonathan Cooke ACR at 12 midday..

Jonathan served a four-year apprenticeship at York Glaziers’ Trust, where he learnt the traditional skills for the creation, conservation and restoration of stained glass, working on the restoration of York Minster following the 1984 fire. He has been a regular contributor at conferences in the UK, Europe and the USA and is a leading exponent of restoration glass painting of all periods and styles. He is a member of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral’s Fabric Advisory Committee, stained glass adviser to several Diocesan Advisory Committees, a former adviser to the Glaziers’ Trust and member of Churchcare’s stained glass committee. Major restoration projects include the Soane Museum and the grand staircase at Cliffe Castle.

Jonathan has published a book on glass painting techniques and made a special study of many 19th century stained glass firms, some of whose windows are represented at Holy Trinity.

This is a free event, but booking is advised.

Skipton Now ~ Culture and Heritage Event

We are taking part in the Skipton Now Festival, a month-long programme of events throughout August to celebrate our culture and heritage.

Our Artist in Residence, John Sherwood, will be sharing his ideas and inspirations and children are invited to make sketches and collect materials to create their own artwork.

Intuitive Painting Classes starting mid April: Wednesdays 10.00-12.30

Led by artist Rachel Errington, these sessions are given in a welcoming, safe and relaxing space at Mill Bridge Gallery, and encourage you to experiment with colour, mark making, abstraction, and composition.

You will be guided to find your individual style and ways of working with the reassurance that there is no right or wrong way to ‘make’ art.

The sessions are a journey into self expression and encourage you to take your own path.

No painting experience is needed and all materials are provided.
