New experts for Conservation Working Group21 February 2019
It has been the intention of Council, and Conservation chairman Steve Clare that the Conservation Working Group would be improved and revitalised following the very successful rebranding of the Society through its new website, and that bridges would be built with fellow organisations and professionals to engender an atmosphere of friendship and collaboration within the conservation fraternity in the UK and beyond.
Following discussions, it is with great pleasure that we can announce new personnel on the working group, and look forward to exciting and productive times ahead for the Society in the conservation field.
The group now includes individuals who are also committee members of the Icon Stained Glass Section committee, professionals from a range of the leading conservation studios, and the Master of the Worshipful Company of Glaziers. We are also very happy that we have a leading art historian of 19th-century stained glass who can act as an advocate for work of that period.
We are very grateful to these individuals for agreeing to contribute, and speaking for the Chair, we are greatly encouraged that there is an emphasis on youth within our group amongst the more established members.
