Medieval stained glass – the original social media? Glass Society of Ireland Lecture Series

Medieval stained glass – the original social media?
In this lecture Colette Langan invites you to consider how stained glass was greeted by the medieval mind. This will be an exploration of the imagery in stained glass that reflects surprisingly contemporary issues.
Colette Langan is a stained glass conservator and maker. Originally trained in the UK in 1983, she served her time working under mentors Alfred Fisher and Steve Clare from the UK’s leading stained glass conservation studio, Holy Well Glass. There she worked on many iconic glass windows in buildings including Westminster Abbey, Winchester Cathedral and The Tower of London at Chapel Studio, UK. On her return to Ireland she set up her own studio in the North West, in Carrick on Shannon Co Leitrim, where she continues to practice stained glass restoration alongside contemporary design. Today as well as conservation, her studio practice includes stained glass design, incorporating glass painting, and glass fusing techniques. She also makes one-off large and small autonomous art works. She sees education as an important element of her work in both restoration and the creative experience.
