Glass art and craft

Jill Husselby informed and entertained at her stained glass talk on Sunday.

The audience for the latest presentation by the Stanhoe Archive was riveted by the wealth of information imparted by Jill Husselby on the subject of the stained glass windows in All Saints Church, Stanhoe.

Last given in 2014, shortly after the restoration of the windows, the talk started with an overview of stained glass windows and the methodology of their production, along with thoughts and comments on their destruction during the Reformation of the 1600s.

Visitors were then invited to join Jill at each window in turn, where she pointed out various details of the individuals depicted, the colours, the construction and the styles of each one, holding us all captivated by their clarity and beauty, enhanced by the light of the rather autumnal afternoon.

Much discussion followed, and light refreshments were served, with many people commenting on how we all tend to overlook the detail and beauty of the glass if we are unaware of much of the background information. We shall all see stained glass differently in the future, thanks to today’s talk. Our grateful thanks go to Jill for her input, and also for the leaflets given to participants, which were produced by the late Geoff Robinson of Syderstone, and kindly reproduced for us by, and with the kind permission of, his son Alastair.
