Stained glass, although extremely fragile, has been one of the most enduring artistic mediums. Once repaired by plumbers, glaziers and restorers, today its care is undertaken by conservation specialists. This course will explore how professionals work today to preserve and conserve stained glass. It will explore how art historical research and modern scientific methods blend with the stained glass craft skill, little of which has changed for hundreds of years.
