Kali in the Crypt : A Stained Glass Exhibition at St. John on the Wall Church from Friday 9th to Wednesday 28th March 2018Posted on: 09 Mar 2018
The historic St John on the Wall church in Bristol will launch a multi-cultural arts project and stunning stained glass exhibition to celebrate the women of Bristol from Friday 9th to Wednesday 28th March 2018.
The breathtaking exhibition will put on daily events and activities, including insightful, stimulating talks on the history of stained glass and similar imagery, and the making and meaning of Rose Windows stained glass conservation and its techniques.
In addition, there will also be plenty of demos, workshops and family-friendly learning activities providing a fascinating overview of the majestic, beautiful world and artistry of stained glass windows.
St John on the Wall itself was built in the 14th century and remains one of Bristol's most stunning pieces of architecture, literally representing an historic trip back through time, with the upper church and crypt remaining pretty much in its original, unaltered condition. One of the most iconic landmarks in the city, it's located under the archway which frames the end of Broad Street.
