Trim the Tree

At Glencairn Museum
Saturday, February 4, 2012 | 1:00–4:00 pm

Over a thousand years ago three guilds of craftsmen worked collaboratively to create the sacred art of stained glass. This 3 hour tour will focus on the roles of the artisans that made windows for the medieval cathedrals and include a demonstration of historic techniques. Participants will be treated to a rare behind the scenes look at the extraordinary collection of medieval stained glass at Glencairn Museum, the nation’s finest collection in a private museum.
