Stained Glass Demonstrations by a local stained glass artist Cathi Prince in Aslackby Village Hall

If you are interested in stained glass, but are unsure about what it involves, why not come to a demonstration by Cathi Prince of Shedglas Design. The demonstration will showcase the stained-glass techniques of copper foiled Tiffany work as well as traditional leaded panels and the magic of fusing layers of glass to create a truly individual effect. If enough interest is shown on the day, we anticipate being able to hold a monthly workshop where Cathi will help us all to create our own unique pieces.

Event is free, but donations to the Aveland History Group will be welcome!

What the British Library says about the Psalter

What is special about the Luttrell Psalter?

The Luttrell Psalter is one of the most famous medieval manuscripts because of its rich illustrations of everyday life in the 14th century. It was not the first to include scenes of contemporary rustic life, but it is exceptional in their number and fascinating detail. Its lively and often humorous images provide a virtual 'documentary' of work and play during a year on an estate such as Sir Geoffrey's.
