The Stained Glass of Christopher Webb of St Albans

at Marlborough Road Methodist Church and on Zoom

Lecturer: Canon John Edwards

Christopher Webb (1886-1966) was a popular and prolific stained-glass artist of the mid-twentieth century. For the last 40 years of his life, he lived and had his studio and workshop at St Albans. This talk will give an overview of his life and work with a particular focus on commissions for St Albans and the surrounding area.

John Edwards is a retired Anglican priest in the Diocese of Oxford and an Honorary Canon emeritus of Christ Church Oxford. He has been researching Christopher Webb’s work since 2015 and has compiled a comprehensive database of his stained glass and other ecclesiastical art; he has a collection of some 200 original design sketches and over 100 full-size cartoons and will bring a small selection to the talk.
