Ever wondered how the complex images in stained glass are created?

Or how they maintain their vibrant colours and detail through the centuries?

Now is your chance to find out!

Built as a Baptist Chapel in 1898, the Birchcliffe Centre is home to several stained glass windows. The largest window, depicting a Biblical scene of John the Baptist, was once the centrepiece of the chapel, but became dirty and broken when the chapel fell out of use in the 1970s. Now, thanks to a generous donation from a member of the public, the window has been restored to its former glory. All proceeds from this event will go towards the restoration of another stained glass window at the Birchcliffe Centre.
