Lalique altar-piece in the Glass Church, Jersey

Heritage Open Days also happen in France and on the weekend of 18 to 19 September this year the little town of Wingen-sur-Moder at the boundary between Alsace and Lorraine gave a somewhat unusual opportunity for glass enthusiasts.

It was in 1921 that a glassworks was started in Wingen-sur-Moder by René Lalique. The original idea for a museum to house the permanent Lalique collection had to be abandoned, but with help from around the world, including the United Arab Emirates, Israel, the USA and Switzerland, and together with the Reserve Collection from the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris, it was agreed that the old factory and workshops would become a museum.

Restoration and re-use of the former glassworks, together with new additions, resulted in a 3,500m² project with a budget of 11 million Euros. The architect is Jean-Michel Willmotte and the new museum is due to open next spring.

The construction site was opened to the public for Heritage Day providing a delight for those lucky enough to be able to visit.
