Glassumimass is a creative glass project initiated by artNK. A small community group has been working on the project since 2010, creating three large scale standing glass lanterns. The lanterns (or ‘glassumis’) have been created using kiln formed and stained glass techniques, with their designs taking inspiration from the beautiful churches along the Spires & Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail, from Lincoln Cathedral to St Denys in Sleaford.
The completed Glassumis are now on display at St John’s Church, Washingborough.
The church will be open from 10am to 2pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from 12.30pm to 4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Free Stained Glass Taster workshops are taking place on Thursday 9th and 16th March, and Thursday 6th and 13th April, between 11am – 1pm. Just come along, no need to book.
Visitors might also wish to be guided around the church and learn aspects of its history and artefacts spanning 900 years. Refreshments will be available.
The Glassumis will tour to other churches along the Spires & Steeples Arts & Heritage Trail in 2017.
