19th December 2022

A week of cheerful seasonal details found in stained glass windows in English churches. This endearingly colourful and wonky Christmas tree is by Irene Dunlop (née Shakerley, 1893-1965) in a Nativity window which commemorates her father who died in 1943. Little is known about her artistic training; the few windows she made in what could be loosely described as an Arts & Crafts style can be found in a trio of Cheshire churches. This is in All Saints Chapel on what was the Shakerley family estate.
