Girls Learn the Art of Stained Glass
Monday, 22 March 2010
Bolton School Junior Girls took part in a stained glass workshop with the artist who will be helping them to design their own feature stained glass window for the new school.
Girls from all years took part in a competition to create a design idea for the new stained glass window, and the special workshop with artist Andrew Seddon, Director of Classical Glass, was a prize for the girls who created the best ideas. To enter the competition they were asked to consider what makes Bolton School special in order to create a sketch or symbol to sum up what the School means to them, along with a sentence to explain their design.
Although only the girls with winning entries from each year group got chance to attend the workshop, all the ideas will be submitted to the artist for possible inclusion in the final design for the stained glass window.
The workshop involved a stained glass making demonstration followed by an opportunity to make their own design into a beautiful piece of Perspex artwork using techniques used in the stained glass process. This artwork will also be displayed in the new school.
