Condition Assessments for Conservation
Thursday July 14th, 1:30pm - 4:30pm Cost included with conference registration.
We will take a 5-minute walk to a local church that has windows by Tiffany, J & R Lamb, Connick, and two windows believed to be from the 15th century from either Germany or England.
Attendees will inspect the windows, assess their condition and prepare a condition report along with recommendations for conservation work. The group will then meet to compare, discuss and debate their findings and recommendations.
