Commemorative Window – Rolls Crescent Primary School

Primary School participative stained glass project

May – July 2016

I was commissioned to design a window to celebrate the live of a beloved teaching assistant who had been at the school for a long time and was particularly close to the year 6 pupils.

I came into school and worked with the children in year six to help them think about how they wanted to celebrate and remember their teacher visually within a stained glass window. I also gave them some understanding of how a stained glass window is constructed and brought in examples. We then over two session came up with design ideas, which I worked up into two designs, and the children chose one. Whilst I made the window I sent regular picture updates to show the process to the class.

Below is the finished window and some of the process, which is in a quiet open plan area and overlooks the schools main hall.
