The Stained Glass Museum is located in Ely Cathedral. It is accessed by a stone spiral staircase (40 stairs). As the Museum won’t be open when you arrive, please wait at the entrance door where someone will come and greet you and let you in. If this is your first visit to the Museum, our entrance is found through the main (west) door of the Cathedral and then turn right past the font.

Meet the Tutor
Jane has always loved drawing and early on she knew she wanted to continue pursuing her art alongside her love of literature which led Jane to study a degree in Arts and Humanities at De Montfort University in the early 90’s. Whilst taking time to raise a family Jane started work in The Stained Glass Museum in Ely Cathedral 10 years ago and more recently embarked on a programme of study and daily painting practice. Over the last 6 years she has developed her painting and drawing style bringing new techniques from time spent print making and learning about art history. Jane has continued to push her learning and loves to share her knowledge by running workshops and giving short guided tours at The Stained Glass Museum. As well as painting expressive, textural landscapes Jane regularly take commissions for pet portraits in soft pastels and continues to enjoy painting illustrative watercolours inspired by stained glass.
