St Andrew’s Church Barnsbury

Just Displays were commissioned by St Andrew’s Church to offer a solution for the restoration of some beautiful paintings that were discovered inside the alcoves either side of the central stained glass window.

Having been exposed to many years of damp, plus witnessing a few wars, the paintings were in desperate need of restoration. It was agreed that, as a short-term solution, a temporary copy should be mounted over the top so the artwork could still be enjoyed whilst the church decided on the best way to restore them. As the church is a listed building and therefore drilling or altering the building in anyway is off the cards, the team at Just Displays were posed with finding the best solution to implement this.

After an extensive site survey we decided to produce a rigid aluminium frame that could be wedged inside the alcoves with coloured Foamex spacers to match the image. We decided to print onto Textile, as it would lend itself to the nature of the image.

The imagery below illustrates the whole project from site survey to completion.
