Caroline Chisholm Commemorative window, Northampton 2015

About this project

A new window to commemorate the life and work of the 19th Century Humanist Caroline Chisholm, in her home town of Northampton. This project is a partnership between Caroline Chisholm School, Northampton, and Holy Sepulchre Church, Northampton.

Pupils from the school created abstract designs which were then collaged together to form the final design linked by a central ribbon motif.

The window is to be placed in Holy Sepulchre Church, Northampton where she was married.
