Capturing Magic - The Making of Stained Glass

A great short film showing some of the processes and supplier I use in my work, enjoy…

This film shows the materials and methods used for making stained glass from medieval times to now. The film has been made in partnership between The Stained Glass Museum, Ely and The Stained Glass Centre, York. It was shot on location in Ely Cathedral, The Stained Glass Museum in Ely, York Minster, York Glaziers Trust, the Salisbury Stained Glass Studio, and the workshops at English Antique Glass in Wolverhampton.

The film was completed under the guidance of the two partnership institutions by the Creative Director of Historyworks, Helen Weinstein, with Sound by Jon Calver and Edit by Ross Casswell, the team at Historyworks.
