The Stained-Glass of Margaret Agnes Rope, Shrewsbury Cathedral, Saturday 24 September 2016, 2pm

Dr Claire Fitzgerald of Warwick University is giving a free lecture – inside Shrewsbury Catholic Cathedral – in front of the huge stained-glass windows by Margaret Rope that can be found there. The talk is in the afternoon, to ensure the windows can be seen in full light – and all are welcome!

The talk takes place on Saturday 24th September, at 2pm.

Dr Fitzgerald is particularly knowledgeable about the craft techniques used by Margaret Rope; such techniques were important in giving her glass the range of rich colours and the dazzling effect that so characterised this ‘Arts & Crafts Movement’ style.

There will also be a profile of Margaret Rope’s place in the history of stained glass, and a discussion of Margaret Rope’s religious life-journey from convert to Catholicism to entering a convent and how that made its way into her designs.

The talk is one of the activities complementing the Margaret Rope ‘Untold Story’ Exhibtion at the Shrewsbury Art Gallery.
