MA in Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management:
Spring Master-Class

Over the past ten years, the face of stained glass conservation has been changed through training opportunities at all levels. Practice-based internships funded through the Institute of Conservation (ICON), the NADFAS, the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), and the University of York’s own MA course have supported a new generation of stained glass conservators.

These young practitioners are now making their mark in studios throughout Europe. Our speakers, all of whom have experience of one or more of these routes into a career in conservation, will speak about their own career and the projects with which they are now involved.
