The course will introduce some of the key philosophical issues and practical challenges which arise in the conservation of stain glass in historic buildings.


The aim of the workshop is to introduce some of the key philosophical issues and practical challenges which arise in the use and conservation of glass in historic buildings.

A three-day course is designed to provide an understanding on the glass as a historic material and also focus on various aspects related to use of glass in a historic building, which includes manufacture, cutting and fixing of the glass along with its conservation. The theory behind the use and conservation of glass will be supported by illustrative discussions and practical hands-on session at the site. A guided tour of the project site will demonstrate how some of the issues and problems of glass conservation are being addressed at a particular historic building. This will help illustrate a range of problems in-situ and discuss these issues with experts. A specially designed practical session will provide a unique opportunity for participants to work alongside traditional craftspeople and gain hands-on experience of working with historic glass.
