The Stained Glass Museum workshop - South Transept Triforium, Ely Cathedral, CB7 4DL
The Stained Glass Museum is located in Ely Cathedral. It is accessed by a stone spiral staircase (40 stairs). As the Museum won’t be open when you arrive, please wait at the entrance door where someone will come and greet you and let you in. If this is your first visit to the Museum, our entrance is found through the main (west) door of the Cathedral and then turn right past the font.
About the Workshop
Heaven and Earth
Screen-printing on mouth-blown glass. No prior experience required.
A day of print celebrating Ely cathedral as a place of worship and inspiration, making collaged prints from a wide selection of images taken in and around the cathedral.
You will screen print using traditional glass paints and enamels on to hand-made, mouth-blown glass - building up layers to create stunning one-off works of art, which will be kiln-fired onto the glass making something that will last for years to come. We will also make elegant oak display stands to help display your artworks.
