Colouring Sheets

Several stained glass windows from churches in the diocese have been digitally edited, with the colour of the glass panes removed, converting the resulting lineart into colouring sheets.

PDFs with instructions, information, relevant Bible verses and collects can be found here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApeOYRncxKZcgZl71hAS0c-XPtUEXQ?e=4NrhLn.

More sheets are planned for the following weeks and months, if you have a window you’d like to propose, let me know!
