Window number 9


Another of Saltaire's 'Living Advent Calendar' windows, number 9, is at the Methodist Church.  It was designed and painted by members of Saltaire Methodist Art Group, a thriving group that meets on Wednesday mornings in the Methodist Church Hall.  You can't really tell from my photo, which was taken at night with the windows lit from within, but the side panels have little squares showing very intricate Celtic patterns.

  2. Do the contributors change days each year or does the Methodist Church, for example, always do the ninth day?

  13. Wow I thought it was stained glass at first. That Art Group sounds like fun, I see they serve tea and biscuits as part of the class. ~Lili
