Our project supported the Margaret Rope Retrospective Exhibition – which ran in Shrewsbury for four months between September 2016 and mid January 2017.
‘Marga’ was one of the great ‘Later Arts & Crafts Movement’ stained-glass artists, her main career being from 1910-1935.
Her works can be seen in churches across three continents, and in museums in America.
She was born in Shrewsbury in 1882; and worked in London from 1911-1923, before spending the rest of her life in a convent.

Sadly, Marga is largely forgotten – not only in art history, but even in her home-town of Shrewsbury (see Neglected By History).
However, slowly, slowly, a few enthusiasts are managing to raise her profile, and to try to get her reputation restored.
This website will keep you across the campaign to restore her work and reputation to the pre-eminence it deserves.
