Thurso West Kirk
We are very pleased to announce Morning Glass Designs will be working on the restoration of several stained glass windows in Thurso West Kirk. The work involves the removal of 3 windows which were restored in unsuitable glass, reconstruction of these panels in a new configuration (to remove hopper vents) and reinstallation, as well as providing workshop-based training in the fundamentals of stained glass removal, repair and installation as part of a funded scheme.
Work on the project (which will be carried out in association with Michael Zappert Leaded Lights, Aboyne) is being overseen by Edinburgh-based conservation architects Addison Conservation & Design. The windows are scheduled for removal in early June, and the refurbishment of the church (which includes the building of a new south entrance) will take several months.
