The conservation of historic stained glass is an essential and vibrant element in the stained glass sector. Conservation is the art of studying a window's history as part of preserving it for future generations to enjoy. It often involves collaborations between conservators, art historians, conservation architects and scientists. The conservation working group will be pleased to offer advice about such collaborations.
The working group reports regularly to the Council of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, and is Chaired by Steve Clare ACR, FMGP with accredited conservator Sarah Knighton and SPAB Fellow Helen Bower. Helen is responsible for the conservation pages of our website. With extensive experience at the Victoria & Albert Museum, York Glaziers Trust and Holy Well Glass, Helen is the point of contact for conservation matters and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
