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 is currently open on Tuesday evenings from 6 – 8.30pm and Saturday mornings from 9.30am – 12 noon
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.
