Rosslyn Chapel Stained Glass Window

11.5.2021 News

We’re excited to have received Listed Building Consent for a new stained glass window at Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the Rosslyn Chapel Trust.

The proposed new window is to be designed by the renowned artist Joe Tilson. Born in 1928 and associated with the beginnings of Popart in London, his work is represented in public and private collections worldwide. He has won numerous awards and was elected Royal Academician in 1991.

The stained glass window will be made and installed by Mark Bambrough and his team at Scottish Glass Studios. Scottish Glass Studios were responsible for the repair and conservation of the glazing during the major project from 2008 to 2014 and is also part of the team responsible for ongoing environmental monitoring at the Chapel.

Since its completion in the 1400s, the history of glazing at the Category-A listed building has been one of change and renewal. The oldest stained glass window in the Chapel dates from 1867, and is located in the Lady Chapel. The most recent can be found in the baptistery, and was installed in 1970. We’re pleased to be able to play a part in continuing this lineage; in celebrating the ongoing work of the Rosslyn Chapel Trust; and in welcoming visitors back into building later this year.
