Salisbury and Wiltshire Study Weekend
Thursday 24 - Sunday 27 April 2014
The 2014 Stained Glass Museum Study Weekend will take place in the delightful county of Wiltshire, where we will be based in Salisbury. Some of the highlights include stunning early medieval French glass at WIlton (pictured right), rare seventeenth-century windows by Abraham Van Linge at Lydiard Tregoze, a three-course inner in the Chapter House of Salisbury Cathedral and fine nineteenth-century glass at Alderbury.
We will be staying at Grasmere House, Salisbury, a fine Victorian house with gardens. Situated on the banks of the Rivers Avon and Nadder, Grasmere House is only a few minutes walk from the city centre and has superb Cathedral views.
Our main guide will be Dr David O’Connor, a member of their Corpus Vitrearum Committee who has published widely on medieval and Victorian stained glass windows. He is currently conducting research for the CVMA Summary Catalogue of Wiltshire, where he is now based.
All prices include: travel to all sites, guide-receiving headset and a conference pack with site notes, compiled by Dr Jasmine Allen, Curator.
Residential: £400 including three nights bed and breakfast and evening meals.
Non-residential: £200 (visits and evening meals); £100 (visits only)

Thanks to all who helped make our 2013 Autumn Lecture Series a success. The series of lectures covered a broad chronology of stained glass history, from medieval to contemporary, with insights into stained glass conservation at the Burrell Collection and the stained glass work of Wilhelmina Geddes.
