Design Your Own Sheep in a Mini Stained-Glass Window

Monday 8 – Friday 12 April, 11am–12pm

Inspired by the design in the Lady Chapel window in Exeter Cathedral, come and make your own mini stained-glass window to hang up or to make into a card this Easter. Did you know Jesus is referred to as “the lamb of God” in the Bible?

Using coloured felt tips, pencil crayons and gold gouache decorate the circle with shapes and design your own mini stained-glass window. Children will learn pencil control, design, painting techniques, and colour coordination.

This workshop is for children aged 6+ and there is a maximum of 15 children per workshop – children may each have up to one accompanying adult with them for free. Participants are asked to come to the welcome desk of the Cathedral and will be collected for the workshop for an 11am start.

Children: £5
Accompanying adults: FREE (one per a child)
