Icon Stained Glass Group AGM and Conference 2016, Canterbury
Thursday 1st September – Saturday 3rd September 2016
Disaster! Management, Recovery, Reconstruction, Opportunities
The Icon Stained Glass Group AGM and Conference 2016 will be held at Canterbury from 1st September to 2nd September, with an optional day of study visits on Saturday 3rd September. Papers both on the theme of disaster and presenting recent work will be led by Léonie Seliger, Director of the Stained Glass Studio at Canterbury Cathedral, who will provide a keynote address on the Great South Window project, followed by the opportunity to visit the conservation studio and reinstallation of the historic glass.
On Saturday 3rd, we will visit the cycle of windows by Marc Chagall and Charles Marq at All Saints Church, Tudeley, and stop off at The Friars, Aylesford, as well as St Lawrence’s Church, Mereworth, a stunning neo-classical church with mid-18th century heraldic glass by William Price the Younger. We will also visit a site which presents an apt example of ‘disaster’, The Shrine of St Jude at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Faversham, which has an ensemble of 1950s stained glass by Richard King, and whose west window was reconstructed in 2004 following a fire.
