Restored Advent Windows

1st December 2019

During the summer months the RWB Shed were approached by the United Reformed Church located in Wood Street, Royal Wootton Bassett.

For many years during the festive season the upper windows of the church facing into Wood Street have been decorated with artworks made from cardboard frames and coloured acrylic film, recreating the Nativity Scene with a stained glass effect. Years of use have taken their toll and something needed to be done to save these treasured items.

After a visit to assess them, the Shed agreed to take on the task of recreating the artworks in plywood and reusing the acrylic film. Over the summer and autumn months this task was completed by RWB Shed member Mark Mudd. The restored Advent Windows are now installed in the United Reformed Church for the 2019 festive season.
