An unmissable event for everyone interested in ecclesiastical buildings; for all building conservation advisors, funders, architects and surveyors; and for all owners and custodians of fragile stained glass or other decorative glazing.

Event description: 

Environmental deterioration is arguably the most serious risk facing stained glass windows. Historic England is hosting a one-day conference to look at its causes and its treatment. This will present the results of our research project looking at the design and efficacy of “environmental protective glazing” (ventilated secondary glazing), and will launch the consultation on our forthcoming Guidance Note (Stained Glass: Dealing with Environmental Deterioration).

Speakers including Tobit Curteis, Leonie Seliger, Steve Clare, Andrew Arrol,
Chris Wood, Giles Proctor, and Robyn Pender will be discussing all aspects  of the protection of stained glass endangered by environmental deterioration: practical conservation and research, case studies, and planning issues.
