Dundee BSMGP

The British Society of Master Glass Painters annual conference 2009 was located in Tayside in the kingdom of Fife from Thursday the 27th till Sunday the 30th of August. I got to go to it for free although it's usually quite expensive so I was very lucky. We went and looked at a lot of historic stained glass in and around Dundee. We looked at the work of notable artists such as Christopher Wall, Louis Davie, Herbert Henry, Alexander Walker, Henry Holliday (some of the nicest), Willie Wilson (really, really fabulous), Margaret Chilton, Douglas Strachan (always a favourite) and Steven Adam Studios. It's well worth a look at some of the local churches if you happen to be in the area. St Andrews especially has a lot of great glass, All Saints church, St Salvadors college and Holy Trinity Church to name but a few.
