The Stained glass Workshop

The glass conservators undertake all work associated with the care and protection of Nidaros Cathedral’s stained glass windows, which were mainly made from 1908 to 1935 by Gabriel Kielland. These were inserted into the window spaces in such a way that with the daily temperature fluctuations throughout the year, massive “bumps” in the glass were formed. Thus, a large part of the glaziers' work is to replace the original lead with one more suitable to the Norwegian climate.
