ST THOMAS À BECKET CHURCH
Caroline Swash will talk about the background to the beautiful series of stained glass windows created by her father and grandfather - Edward and Henry Payne - for St Thomas à Becket Church.
Caroline has created stained glass windows for Gloucester, Salisbury and Portsmouth Cathedrals and several churches in the UK and USA. She has written extensively on architectural stained glass and is currently working on the biographies of her father and grandfather.
Caroline began making her own windows in 1965 and has since been combining commissions in stained glass with family life, writing, painting and teaching.
She was Hon Secretary of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, tutor at Central St Martins College of Art and Design and in charge of the two year post graduate glass course.
She and her husband set up the Malvern Arts Press in 2000. Publications include ‘14 stained glass walks in London’ with Ginger Ferrell, ‘Medical Science and Stained Glass’, ‘Glass at Central’ by Hildegard Pax and ‘The 100 best Stained Glass Sites in London’ published in 2015
