Britain has a rich architectural heritage, and the history of stained glass is entwined with that of our stately homes, churches, abbeys, cathedrals and public buildings. Stained glass combines fine art, design, architecture, craft, worship, decoration and history.
It is only through the proper conservation of our existing stained glass that we can hope to preserve the art form so it continues to illuminate Britain’s buildings for centuries to come.
Nick Easthope is one of a handful of specialist stained glass craftsmen with the training, experience, passion and knowledge levels to conserve stained glass windows, doors and works of art. He partners with other skilled craftsmen on building projects where accidental damage, vandalism or the passing of time threaten to destroy the building’s legacy.
When a detailed report is needed, we can carry out the initial assessment before writing a report outlining the suggested course of action for the glass, lead and support. Our reports are an invaluable tool for associations, boards and fund raising projects.
We are also experienced in caring for metal opening casements, hoppers, Ferramenta, saddle bars and all the other integral components of stained glass windows in order to deliver a complete end-to-end conservation service.
