This Autumn the University of York is celebrating the tenth anniversary of the launch, in collaboration with the York Glaziers Trust, of its MA in Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management; and, ten years on, it will revisit the subject of its very first master-class: the conservation of the Great East Window of York Minster.

This day-long event will take place at the King’s Manor, York, on Saturday, 10th November, between 09.00 and 18.00.
